What struts/shocks are you running? I know you said OEM, but do you have ZCP, non-ZCP EDC, or no EDC?

The squared setup looks amazing but did it make the car understeer more due to the heavier and wider front tires? I wonder if that would upset the balance of the turn in.

Your understanding of how understeer and oversteer are impacted by front end changes is the opposite: there is less understeer now.

This man has it.

On my last E92 I ran a square 220M wheel (19x9.5 width) setup for a bit. Mounted Michelin PSS 275/30/19 and a variety of suspension setups. The square setup moves the vehicle from a slight understeer to slight oversteer when pushed. Combined with the M differential it makes for a very predictable and controllable disposition. Added benefit is a full tire warranty and ability to rotate tires/wheels 🤓
