[s-cars] To plow, or not to plow.

Well since F1 cars have wider rear tires than front, as I believe IRL cars
do as well, there must be something to it.  I think the idea is if the car
has less weight in the rear they help the rear grip better.

Woah! is me.  Don't ask.
But here's my question to the great and powerful oz:
Staggered wheels.  Supposedly for sure they will increase oversteer.   A
number of high line cars sport them, but is this because they dont want rich
boy racers to do a spinOrama and they look cool?
Given a choice in a RWD car between staggered and not staggered, not
staggered at first blush seems a wiser choice for a good driver as it should
provide more grip in the corners, faster turn in and allow for time to time
tire rotation?
ps  I know NG for quattro.
