Wider Tires or LSD?

Every morning I merge from my apartment's parking lot to a busy highway and I trip my traction control

What would be the best remedy:
wider tires (iirc 275's non RFTs could fit nicely on some ultraleggeras)

or

a limited slip?

I'm currently running one year old OEM pilot sport runflats.

Also I drive 20k miles a year for work.

Tie some helium ballons to the tip of your right foot. That'll ease it off the throttle a little...

Yeah, don't push so hard on the go pedal.

Wider & lighter wheels with non run flat tyres AND a LSD. That's what I did and never looked back 😃

Not getting on it that hard, it's just the turning right + throttle. I have to admit my dsc is super sensitive (annoyingly so).

Sure I could also go buy a 328i


Admittedly my last cars where either AWD (e91/e46) or had LSD (E30)
