Question Lose traction rear wheels 335d ?

Anybody have the rear tires spin out or lose traction in the 335d. I just lightly step on the go pedal sometimes and the tires lose traction and spin out a bit.
Continental run flats. . .

With the torque those cars have I would imagine it happens rather easily.

Yup, I liked to brake boost and launch across intersections in the 535d I drove in Munich. 0-15mph is very quick.

What tires should I use ?

I don't mind changing them. I thought the Continental run-flat was pretty grippy tire according to the tire rack?

I need grip in the rain too.
Now has 225 45 17 all around.

It happens to me sometimes as well and I have 255 rear tires. Especially when you are on the throtle a bit to early coming out of a corner.
Wider tyres, a LSD and stiffer swaybars will improve things.

225's with 400+ ft/lbs. 255's lose traction easily enough, I can't imagine 225's.
