Depends on the car, the driver, and track type.

Some prefer staggered over square, but just going from stock staggered to square reduces some understeer, all other components (suspension, camber, etc.) being equal.

Also allows for tire rotations and one set price for tire purchases.

Although on this particular setup the wheels are not square. So tire rotation would involve dismounting.

Correct. But in general, if you're running a true square those are added benefits.

Because understeer involves less liability.

BM used square setups until the E36 M3 and has gone staggered since.

Gorgeous and functional. These are the kinds of builds I love! So great that he's using the car to its potential 305's all the way around is just plain nasty.

Great choice going with 18s IMOP. I will eventually get these rims for my car and stick with 18s as well.
