i thought a staggered setup on a AWD vehicle was a big no no...?? also, 215 tires on 8.5 and 9.5 is really stretching the tire, you might want to atleast get 235 or wider.

Hell you could put 285s on the 9 and a halfs. They would stick out a good bit. The rubbing will just depend on how much suspension travel you have. I would guess they would rub but cant say for sure. The offset is way way off for the car though its -31 from stock with a rim that is 2 inches wider which moves the wheel out about 5 cms I believe. You can get away with a staggered set up such as 8.5 in the front 8 in the rear with the same size tire on both but this is really pushing it. Personally I would pass but its your car/fenders/diff at risk.
