If you are just wondering on wheel size I would go staggered. That way you have to the option of running larger than 275 rears if you decide to use a staggered tire setup. I believe that you can run the same sized tire front and back even if your rear wheels are 22x10 vs fronts at 22x9. Just a quick check on Tirerack showed Goodyear F1 255/35R20 will fit on 8.5"-10" wheels. So with that I'd say go staggered wheels and then you have more options on staggered tires or can still run same size tire on all four for longevity.
But he doesn't want to run 22/10's in the front and then 22/9's in the back... wouldn't that look funny or if he puts say 275's on the 10's and then 245's on the front, you don't want to rotate the bigger tires to the front, right??? Just going by what I was told by a local tire dealer.The staggered wheels won't impact whether he chooses to stagger his tires.
Nowhere in the previous statement was it suggested to run staggered TIRES and rotate them. Just staggered WHEELS with the same sized Tires on them. Difference highlighted.But he doesn't want to run 22/10's in the front and then 22/9's in the back... wouldn't that look funny or if he puts say 275's on the 10's and then 245's on the front, you don't want to rotate the bigger tires to the front, right???

I guess I was assuming that most people run different size tires when they do the staggered rims, otherwise why would you not just go with 4 rims of all the same size??? Most of the wheel/tire packages I've seen online have the rear 2 tires wider then what the ones for the front are.... that's what I based my original comment on to the OP.Nowhere in the previous statement was it suggested to run staggered TIRES and rotate them.

I would think that regardless of wheel width if the tire size is the same it wouldn't look any different. The Goodyear F1 for example has a measured rim width of 9". The section width is 10.2". Therefore on the 9" wide tires the section width is spot on at 10.2". For the 10" tire that same 255/35 will have a section width of 10.6". So there will be a 4/10 of an inch difference. Not sure how many folks can pick up on that visually? Therefore, to the eye all of the wheels/tires will look to be quite similar at 10.2" and 10.6".
If there is a mechanical/driveability reason to not do it I am unaware but would certainly not do it if there was. If it is just a visual thing then I would doubt anyone would pick up on it.
Yeah while looking around the tirerack website the 255/35R22" Goodyear F1 tires were less expensive than the 245/45R20 size. I've seen other instances like you mentioned where the wider rear tire was sometimes less expensive than the front.The crazy thing I discovered is sometimes wider tires are less expensive within the same brand/model as narrower tires. And if/when that's the case, running staggered actually becomes more affordable.
So you think it will look better huh? What tire set up should I go with then. Then guy thats at the shop says to get the ride height even I should go 265/30/22 in front and 295/25/22 in back. Is this right. Or I can go 265/35/22 front with 295/30/22 rear. Do you think it would be a diffrence with staggered vs non staggered.You brush your teeth, comb your hair, pull the nose hairs out .. right? Why?
Because You want to look good.
Do the same for your car.
Do Staggered rims with staggered tires.
You can't be putting on 22's on a Challenger and be worried about saving money on rotations.
Okay, okay! I like what you doing over there. Stagg is looking better to me now. Im a lil confused about ur tire width. The guy at the shop says to go 295 rear and 265 front. How does 245 fit on the front and 265 in the rear? I thought 265 were for wheels that are 22×9. Also he suggested 30 rear and 35 front. I asked why and he said that the car would be uneven if I had 30's all around on a stagg set up. Does your car seem higher in the rear with 30's all around.go staggered.
10" in the rear is almost not enough width for these cars so 9" would be underkill in my opinion.
do not go with a tire lower than 30 profile though or the 22s will look bad, especially if you aren't dropped low.
