You need some front end work done the tires won't make it do what your saying although it could Bo a possibility if you have spacers behind the wheels diff. 235 or 275 is wide and height that's an exzample

Checkout upper and lower ball joints on front end that should be what's causing it

Anytime you have unusual tire wear something is not aligned right, you have changed the steering dynamics when you changed wheels but a good alignment shop should be able to readjust camber and caster as well as toe in to compensate for the change, I believe that you have something worn out as stated above that is causing your trouble, you might try a different shop for alignments, possibly a place that specializes in alignments.
