Yup, that is what I found as well on mine. Even though you said you
changed tires, they could be of the same construction. Were they the same
brand and model tire? Look at the construction of both. In my case the
rubber was 'hard' and when the tire is cold (and they are still
considered cold even at 80deg F ambient) they take on the shape they sat
in overnight. For about a mile they would shake my steering wheel.
One night I put it on jacks, so they werent resting on the tires. It
didnt happen the next morning, so that proved it to me.
