Ok, I trust you guys about the staggered setup working with my XI. Now I'm just wondering, why go staggered?

I'm not too concerned about performance gain as I won't be taking it to the track. I just want to give it a better look by going to 18" rims and making the rear wheels flush with the edge of the fender.

By going staggered, the calculator says the outer edge of my wheel will be extended by 3mm. It sounds like I will need rear spacers anyway to have the desired effect, so why not just go 8" or 8.5" all around?

Also, any suggestions for a good all-season RFT? I will be doing a good bit of snow driving and would like to avoid having a specific winter set (but that isn't out of the question).

Sorry for the repetitive questions, I really do appreciate all the advice.
