We have been drifting a bit off topic here... but a few more thoughts. 'Grip' depends on friction between tire rubber and road. More tire contact patch can increase grip up to a point - e.g., wider tires slide more easily on ice. All things being equal, if tires on the outer side of a curve have more grip, the car will lean more, higher g.

And yes, we are comparing recent (F80) M3s. Discussing which M3 had best steering feel and handling deserves a pitcher of really good cold beer. I would love to have a pristine E36. I still miss my 2002tii...
