Some years ago, I had freeway "wiggle" on an old ('91) Suburban with new tires (BFG AT/TA I think). It went away within a couple of hundred miles, as others suggested. I haven't had (or noticed) it with other new tires. But I know it can happen.

Get a few hundred miles on as quickly as possible!! Then you'll know if there's something else wrong (like a defective tire) and can take care of it ASAP.

Ok see now you said they were. I can tell you they felt like that a little for me also. I think it maybe due to the amount of tread they have. Itís pretty deep tread vs some other tires. Taller the tread more it can squirm around on you.

We had some continentals on a truck that felt like that. On curves you could go full steam ahead with the old truck and BFG tires but the newer truck with continentals felt unstable as heck. After a few hundred miles they started vibrating real bad and the tire place found that the steel belts had separated. No idea how many miles were on them because the truck was bought used with them on it, but they looked nice.


I won't be putting continentals on anything in the future. Or BFGs because they have their own issues.

Had the same issue with some Toyo Open Country ATII's. I was really concerned so I spoke to my friend at Toyo. He talked to one if his engineers who told us that they put a release compound on the rubber as part of the manufacturing process to allow the new tire to come out of the mold. The release compound makes them slippery. After I drove a few hundred km, everything settled right down.
