Weird Rhythmic Thumping (New Tires)

So i just replaced my back tires with some new ones. Started driving and noticed that when i take my foot off the gas the back tires start thumping. it sounds almost like driving on a flat tires however both tire are at 37 psi. any ideas?

Which tires did you buy? Some tires sound like tractor tires, even when new.

X drive car?

Do your fronts and rears match in size? I’m wondering if it’s a staggered setup and it’s “too staggered” causing the front and rear wheels to be out of sync and causing what you are feeling
