Some good points already mentioned, but common misunderstanding is that circumference when it comes to rubber plays secondary role.
Tires do sag and change the diameters with centrifugal force, that is why manufacturer post rpm for each particular tire and that is what you suppose to compare.
I heard that "avoid staggered on 4M" a lot, but never heard that traction control on 4M is different to RWD.
Maybe there is something to it, maybe just common misunderstanding
