Traction issues

Hello, this is my first thread here...

So I am having traction issues on a stock M3, and I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on how to improve traction.

When the car was bought new, it came with the useless Continentals (245 up front and 265 rear) and they would even break traction in 4th in a DCT. The car was really scary to redline, hard to go 6k+ rpm without invading lanes! So I changed the tires to 255 front and 295 rear PSS. While the car will hesitate to break traction 5.5k+ rpm on 3rd it is still not that nice. Everything was done on MDM, traction control off is not a good idea as you might imagine. It is also important to mention that I live in Monterrey, Mexico and that here the roads are made out of asphalt I think. (with the sun shining over it most of the day and cars going over it constantly, asphalt tends to go flat)
