I know that staggered wheels are common with the rear wheel being wider than the front. But theres someone that has a set of wheels for sale with the rear wheel being not only wider, but its also bigger, the rear wheel is 22 inches and the front wheel is 20 inches. Does that sound like something that would work, or is that gonna be nothing but problems? The vehicle in question is an 02 S55. Thanks

Bro you do not what to do this it will create problems and it will look stupid,

1st the car need the same overoll diameter ( what I mean by that is that all the wheels need to have the same high from to to bottom) so your speedometer, abs and traction control system does not go crazy.

2nd it will look stupid because the onlu way to do so is to run a 245/30/22 in the rear and a 255/35/20 in the front. the tire in the front will have a bigger side wall and the real a really short side wall. remember the only cars they do this is corvettes, ferrraries, lambo,s and thats because their wheel space in the rear is been design for a bigger wheel not for looks
