You should not mix RFT with non RFT's. You will experience what you are now, bad handling. Most tire manufacturer recommend again this, surprised your installer let you install them. The alignment alone won't help you. Either take the new ones back and replace with RFT's or change the fronts to Non-RFT. Have them check the alignment while your at it.

I guess the garage that propose those tire didn't know what they were doing ? I even ask them if they were compatible and they told me yes !

The run flats have a harder sidewall. So the imbalance of the tires you will get oversteer and oscillation on the highways. Not very safe. Driving to the grocery store you might not notice it. I don't like RFT, so I'd replace the fronts with the new Yoko's.
