On a similar note, I ran both staggered and square setups. I've found that it really depends on the track. When I want good rotation, i'd go square, and when I wanted high speed stability, i'd go staggered.
Think the tech saw that I was rolling tire and driving on top of sidewalls. I was running about 35 cold in the morning. The chunk got bigger so I felt it was better to be safe. Think I'm leaning towards a square setup, like the idea of being able to rotate around depending on wear. Also a spare or two might work out as well?
