    AWD With Staggered wheels??

    This is my 1st post on the forum. I just picked up an 09 with DI and AWD. One of my 1st major purchases will be rims. I'm going with 20" but was wondering if I get a staggered set up, will it affect my awd system. These rims will only be for summer use. I tried doing a search on the forum already but came up short. Any help will be appreciated. I'll post pictures up soon!!!

    Should not have any negative effects as long as the outside rolling diameter doesn't change.

    I have a 08 cts4 and just bought some 20's staggered 8.5 " and 10 " , they have the same rolling diameter but I haven't driven with them yet as they are also my summer tires . They are off a coupe and bolted up fine but won't know how they ride until April. They are niche circuits same as Black Dahlia's.

    I've decided to go with 245/40/20 all around. I found the perfect 3 piece wheel on closeout, 20x9 all around.. Can't wait to get them!!!!! And yes pictures will be up as soon as they go on!!

    I am not quite a Cadillac owner(hopefully within the next 7 days). However, I know quite a bit about trucks. Whenever you change wheel or tire size you should get the ABS re-calibrated. As far as the AWD, "NGUYENDOT" answered that. Get the pics up...
