Got new tires but my Suspension feels too soft!

Hey guys I have a 2007 335i coupe n I just got new tires all around
Falken 722 235/40 for the front n 265/35 for the back sitting in 18inch wheels
The ride is very comfortable n smooth but the turning or switching lanes feels like the car is leaning until it straitens out kinda scary if ur going fast I'm very confused on what might be causing this because it didn't happen when I had my old tires on( 225/40 front n 255/35 back on the same 18in wheels)
Does anyone know what might be happening? Thank you

If you switched from run flats, you're now noticing how much softer the side walls are on your new tires. The OE suspension was set up to compensate for the super stiff side walls of the RFTs.

soft sidewalls; soft control arm bushings. try 36f/38r psi in your tires.
