And once more, it is a VERY safe assumption to assume the non rft tires are grippier.
Thats totally understood, but all that matters is the how much thread the wheel has, how much thread is touching the road, stickness of the tire, and the tire compound. What if the car it self is prone to over steer?

RFT only change the structure of how the tire is made. RFT are much heavier so they might not perform as well, but not a difference anyone can tell daily driving on it. Track is a different story.

Oem tires on m3 are RFT michelin pilot sport 2 and it handles amazing.
