I mean, that makes sense, but with brand new Vancos the handling was great. Bought two new sets of those, getting ready to replace them again and thinking about getting 255/70r16 K02s. I drive quite a bit on forest roads, and want the extra clearance and traction, but am not interested in trimming or modifying bodywork.New tires can feel this way. The sharp edges grab until worn and many new tires can feel this way. This is exaggerated on heavy vehicles on high pressure, high load rated tires. I felt this with the new stock tires at highway speed--difficult to track straight. There's even a notice about this in the owner's manual. This break-in was even worse when going to the taller, wider 245/70R17. If the tread pattern is rather linear, like the new Bridgestone Revo4, worse still--even got this same poor tracking sensation on my Land Cruiser, recently. Good news, after about 1000 miles, I didn't notice it anymore.
