Talking Do staggered rims hinder performance or handling?

I have a good friend of mine with a 2008 Toyota Camry and he wanted to put some 18inch staggered rims on it. Staggered meaning the back tire width is wider than the front. Now he keeps hearing that because his car is fwd that staggered rims will hinder his handling, performance, and put stress on some parts. Is this true?
