New Replacement Tires

We were out on adventures this past week and were able to try out those new tires.
First off they were balanced, but they do not track as smoothly as the original factory tires. They seem to wobble from side to side, this is not much but I do notice the difference from the factory ones. Any suggestions?

I would have that checked out at where you got the tires put on, But, in California they cut groves into the road bed and I have noticed that some tread patterns will grab the road and try to follow them. JFI...

Didn't notice any difference with our new trailer tires. Did notice the peace of mind knowing we had the proper tires with proper pressure after such a close near miss of blowing a tire on the freeway at 65mph....Thanks again for all the help on this board.
We do notice a big difference in 'road grab' on our CA roads and highways in our Mustang. I start to get concerned that something is wrong with the tires, then we hit a smooth spot and realize those tires just grab the road more tightly than our other vehicles and so we feel the 'irregularities' in the surface more.

Double check that they are radial tires. What you describe sounds like the difference between radial and bias ply tires.
