Square setup or staggered best for handling in an e92?

I have a 2011 e92 328i 6mt and plan to buy new wheels soon. Do these cars handle better with square fitment, or staggered?

Squared setup will give you better handling

I road raced, I have a e92 6MT with a staggered setup (but also a rear sway, springs, shocks/struts) and it handles really, really well.

Depends on your set up and spring rates.

Probably depends on your setup, but many say square fitment will be optimal for handling.

Also gotta add some negative camber up front to take advantage of wider rubber too.
