Welcome t, you`ve answered your own question,find out what`s gone wrong since putting on new tyres.You can do a visual check on the lips on both sides of the tyres about 5mm from the rim edge full circle.

You or someone else?

Did you fit them or did someone else?

If someone else, take it back before you get dead.

Could be not balanced right or, rarely, the tyre could be dodgy.

If they say the balance is fine and the fitting is fine, ask for another set of the same tyre - it's very rare for manufacturing defects to occur but they can do this and the manufacturers will want to know about it.
