twostep361 - I am unable to respond via PM due to lack of activity on this forum. HA.
I'm running a square setup, 22x10 +38. The fronts clear the Akebono's, and the wheel sits flush to the fender on a Eibach drop. I did place a 5MM spacer on the rear, and all wheels are wrapped with 265/30/22 tires.
It's a pretty conservative fitment, with minimal modification, or any clearance issues. The 265/30/22 tires are also still below the 3% diameter variance of the stock sport wheels/tires. Although, I will probably run 285/30/22 tires, the next time around. (Too much lip/rim exposure for me, and the tires do not have a rim protecting sidewall)
Should you run a staggered fitment, yes. I would, if I didn't have such a far work commute everyday. Replacing tires every year was getting old. (Been on some type of coilover, and aggressive fitment on my cars since '95!)
I did order the new Tanabe Sustec Pro Comfort-R coilovers, and hopefully will get installed this weekend. I can post fitment and clearance pics for you.
Not sure if this helps you in any way.
