Mein Auto: 2003 325Xi
325xi with strange interstate speed 'floating' problem

Hello everyone,
New to the group, first post and new to BMW. Bought a 2003 325xi with 120K on it. Just put some new Firestrone Oval tires (see link to view tread pattern)

Here is the strange deal:

At highway speeds the car seems to 'float' around on the interstate. It's not an allignment issue for I had that done and it tracks wonderfully.
It just seems like I can't keep it still on the road when I get it above 70.
Should I be blaming the tires or do I have suspension parts that need replaced?_a_
