is this standard?

I just took a picture of the car's tires specs and they are staggered from the factory. is this normal setup for the xi cars?
front are 225 and rear 255.
i've read so much about not to stagger the tires on xi as it might shake but here is the original sticker.
any thoughts?

No it's not standard, it's just on your car from the factory....

Yes, it's normal.

I'm not sure where you've been reading not to run a staggered setup on the xi, there are a lot of people doing it here. Just have to make sure the revs per mile are within 3 front to back. (Some people will say a 1% difference is acceptable...)

ok, i thought i have discovered something extra-ordinary, :-)
i'm running 225\45 all around now as i can rotate the tires, with staggered setup i'm stuck.
Thanks a lot.
