And while going non-staggered appear to save you a few bucks on tire cost, all it's doing is shifting the cost of replacing 2 tires sooner to replacing 4 tires later...I'm sure if I'm some sort of math wiz, or if I'm REALLY asian, I'd be able to explain to you that over the long haul, your cost is the same between being able to rotate the wheels/tires and replacing them 2 at a time instead of 4 at a time.

The REAL cost saving comes from having the right alignment so your tires wears evenly inside AND out, not front and back. Again, in my NOT SO HUMBLE opinion.
