Although you've said brand new tires.. have you changed the wheels?.. are they the same wheels as you've on before?.. If the offset (ET) has changed since installing the new tires.. the wheels offset could be the reason.

Sounds like something wrong, should have it checked out at a front end alignment shop, or by the shop who put them on.

True @Rowefast, I over looked the alignment suggestion.
