Staggered or Not

K guys, new question, I've got a 2000 CLK 320, and I was looking at putting the CLK 430 AMG rims on. I have a choice of staggered or not. Obviously the staggered are going to look better, but is there any reason I may want to reconsider?

Ya it'll be a few bucks cheaper on tires, but any ride/comfort/handling benefits to it?

My one thought off the top of my head would be that you can't rotate the tires easily when you're staggered. You end up having to unmount and swap across the car, but can never move forward or to the rear.

Personally I've never used enough of the power I've had to need to go that far other than for the looks.
