255/40/17 up front - if they fit, how will they feel?

Hi everyone,

I'm contemplating running a square setup on my '07 pre-LCI E90, with sport package and currently staggered wheels / tires.

For the square set up. I'm planning on using OEM 17" 8.5 wheels with 37 offset. I'm pretty sure I can run 255/30/17s all around without rubbing as I've pulled my pins and have M3 arms.

But, I'm wondering if there will be any issue with steering response with a wide tread on 8.5s ? Would the car "feel" better with less width all around?

thanks in advance for your thoughts.
