Staggered wheels question 255f 305r

I have an e92 m3 and I'm looking at buying wheels that are 19x9 with 255/35's +20 and 19x11 with 305/30's+33. I'm wondering how the handling will be, given that the stock setup only has 20mm difference (245/265). From what I have read the DSC will interupt more because of the different size (sidewall) of the tires 35 vs. 30's. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Wider tires in the rear will create more understeer.

Thanks, I talked to someone else and they said the same. I don't think it will matter that much on the street. I would rather have understeer than oversteer....at least for now while I'm learning the car. I have only had it for 2 months.
