going from staggard to square, issues?

Found a real nice set of 313 style wheels, but they are a square set. So if I go from a staggard, to square, thats not a big deal is it?

Car will not be as sexy.
Car will not blow up, but have inferiority complex.

Driver will benefit from being able to rotate!

You can pretty much go from staggered to square on any car. Staggered looks awesome though.

You can run staggered on an xi model, just be careful about what tire sizing you choose to run.
