I don't have an answer but a similar experience. A week ago I replaced my OEM RFT all seasons with Blizzak LM-25 RFT. Immediately I could feel the straight-line stability was worse. Before it was quite good; almost like on rails. It makes me more cautious on turns but no obvious problem. So I don't get it either. Did they screw up the alignment (intentionally/accidentally)? Could it be the tires?
