Floating Front Tires

hahaha okay so I got your attention
I just got general UHP's on the rear of my new rims 275/30/19 and I kept my 235/35/19 old tires (Hankook Ventus) on the front.
I noticed that when I take a high speed sweeping curve, it feels like my front tires float or my car is not as stable as it was when I was running 265/30/19's on the rear (Hankook)
I know that the Generals are sticking because on a tight corner, my rear end would slip out, but with the UHP's I grip and don't get traction control warnings.

Would tire widths cause the floating feeling? Do I need to change out my front tires for 245/35/19's?
What if I just lower my air pressure? I haven't tried it yet and I don't know what they inflated it to (forgot to check)
I'm going to post this in the tracking section too
