What code did you get?
You likely have a vacuum leak so changing the O2s will do nothing. You need to fix the air leak/injectors/etc. Only way to tell what to fix is by testing.

Test it. Find and post your fuel trims doing the following test:
Idle for 90 seconds
1k for 90
2k for 90
3k for 90
2k for 90
1k for 90
Idle

And if you have codes post them.
How are your tires and inflation?
