If you are talking about running street tires you have it all wrong. If you want to reduce understeer you want to have your front tire pressure higher than your back.

I have a 318ti with H&R Springs and Bilstein Sport shocks and I run 32psi in front and 30psi in the rear. When I take the car to a drivers school I will usually run 38psi in front and 35psi in the rear.

I believe with track tires you would run higher pressures in the rear to increase oversteer.

Remember on street tires, to increase oversteer/decrease understeer you want to run higher pressures in the front tires.
