Track guys: square vs. staggered?

What is the consensus for the track? Planning to get in on the latest apex group buy. Have been leaning towards a staggered 9.5/10.5 setup with 265/285 tires, but really have minimal data to go by. From what I gather, the max tire a square setup will allow is 275 (on a 18x10 wheel, someone correct me if I am wrong). While it has the advantages of being able to rotate tires and save some money in the long run, does it affect the "feel" or inherent balance of the car on track? My only experience at this point with the 1M on the track is with the stock 245/265 ps2s, which I find to be quite good.

If someone could outline the respective advantages/disadvantages of each setup, I would be very appreciative. Thanks in advance.
