steering not quite right

I have recently changed to 189 wheels on my e92 320d. Tires are bridgestone all round (225/40 front 255/35 rear) and the steering feels a little twitchy.

I did have 1 new tire on the front due to a bulge in the sidewall so 1 front has 8 mm the other 4-5 mm.....could this affect things?

Im not sure if its just me or even the car just feeling less steady now the roads are wetter..... This is my first RWD car!

Any thoughts would be welcome

I just replaced both front tyres, 1 was at 3mm the other at 5mm and the steering was terrible, car would wonder all over the road, now it's so much better, goes exactly where I point it.
