Good choice going with the 17'. How wide? Square or staggered fitment? Hammans should be made by OZ Italy.

8jj and unfortunately not staggered rim size. I'll be on the lookout for staggered rims though. Tyres I'll be sticking with my current tyres and only consider what to do after I wear them out. 245/40/17 rear and 235/45/17 front.

Hmm should get wider rims, at least 8.5jj all round or staggered 8/9jj. Should just use 235/45/17 for all now. 245/40/17 is too small in diameter and sidewall a bit too thin like mine (only 9.8cm sidewall height). If go staggered 8/9jj, then can use 225/45 + 255/40.

What tires are those btw?

Square is ALWAYS better. ALWAYS. Staggered is for the looks...if you're into that.. sure..

Staggered induces understeer.

RWD needs stagger? BS. Just get wide enough tires for both front and back and you're done.

He wants wider rear to hold it's power, but cannot fit wider into the front due to steering....lol

Yes, coz the rears usually can fit much wider than front if you need as much rubber to maintain traction, hence that's why staggered.
