et20 would look alright in the rear, but I dunno about the front. I think that would be sticking out a bit. But IIRC, you are already running some 19's with a low offset....so maybe thats your taste.

the thing is i noticed all staggered sets that fellow members are running in the rear for 19x9 and 9.5 is usually et40 or et35 what about Et25?

Just do the 19x8 with the et25 all around. I have 19x8 et25 up front and et20 in the back and it is fine. There is no reason to get staggared wheels if you arent getting a bigger lip. Since staggering on a FWD car is pointless anyway other then looks and they will LOOK the same just stick with 19x8. Get some spacers if you want for the back if you want them to poke some more then the front, and you will still be able to rotate your tires.

Why not, as long as the over all height of the tire(outside Diameter) is the same front and rear you are fin. There are lots of quattro guy that run staggered. That is plan misinformation to say you can't

for once I agree with Puple.. :thumbup:

As long as the over all diameters are close you can run staggard.
