Double staggered setup 19" front 20" rear

Curious if anyone has run a 19" front with 20" rear setup. Any pro's and con's to this on the e9x chassis? I know a lot of cars run this as standard, but haven't seen this done on the e9x.

I would think the ride ride would be too rough. Looks, I prefer 18 and 19s.

I have 19s and I can't wait to get a deal on 18s. All depends on how you plan on using your car. If you like it, screw them and get it.

I think you'd have to use a 25 profile rear tire so it doesn't fuck with your fd ratio too much, it might ride rough.

Yeah 25 is way too thin. I'm an 18" guy normally, but just figured could be something to look into

When I first bought my car the clowns at the dealership put 275/40/19's on the rear. It looked Sick but rubbed a ton. Gave it a nice rake though if that's what you're looking for.

I really wanted to do this using a 19x10 ET25 and 20x11 ET30 setup. It would work fine using a 275/30/19 front and 285/30/20 rear. But buying brand new LM-Rs and customizing that rear fitment from a GTR spec would be way too much $.

I'm running a 20x10 ET10 rear with 275/30/20 rear without any issues. Ride quality had no discernible difference from a stock ZCP setup.
