My Ride: 2001 330ci vert
Ill handling 330ci after install new winter rims and tires

Looking for advice, and insight. I just installed new winter tires and rims, 225/45/17 square set up on 17x8 rims and now the car is almost undriveable on the highway. Car is darting and need to make constant adjustments to the steering wheel, that never had to be done with my stock staggered set up. Feels like driving in a wind storm but it's calm out.

And now anything over 130km/hr the traction control like goes crazy and starts grabbing the drive wheels, even on dry pavement. Traction control is even working when turning at normal speeds.

Directional tires mounted correctly, no wires disconnected as I switched rims myself.

Any insight appreciated. Already not impressed by Tire shop, but will go back if needed. Car has gone from handling well to crap.
