Instable cornering E92 335d

Well I'll post my problem here since there are a lot of people here who have a 335d. Well I received my E92 coupé ( last weekend. Because of the bad experiences I've read here about RFT, I've replaced them by Goodyear F1 Asymmetric tyres.

The car is very very comfortable on 19" tyres. But when taking a corner a bit sporty, you can feel the car wobble. It doesn't feel very very stable. What could this problem be?

Many people told me the 335d is a heavy engine and in combination with softer non-RFT (BMW's suspension for the E92 is designed for RFT), you get instable cornering.

What should I do? Is this true? Does the tyre pressure of a regular tyre need to be higher then a run flat one? The only solution they advise me is to go back to RFT (I still got my original ones - Bridgestones). Still I'm a bit afraid 19" + RFT will be to harsh of a ride.
