Yokohama Tire issue?

Perhaps someone can help...I purchased a set of new Yokohama brand tires from a retailer here in the SF Bay area. They are standard 16" tires for the stock "snowflake" rims on my 2000 323i, there are no suspension mods on this car it is completely stock. The issue I have is that when I am driving on a grooved highway, the car now feels like the wheels are loose, with a slight sway in the body at freeway speeds! I have checked the lugnuts and they feel tight and the sway is not there on non-grooved roads. The new tires have diagonal cuts in the treads that the Dunlops which came off did not. Could these tread cuts account for this? Thanks all!!!

Looks like you're experiencing some tramlining. Some tires cause this more than others.

It's probably the design of the tire...just something you have to deal with...

My car sways on grooved roads too, I have Dunlops btw.
