Default Hakka H1's feel Weird!

Popped on my almost new Hakka H1's and man, driving them feels so weird i had to post and see if this is normal..
Feels like when i go around turns and specifically if i try a LIGHT slalom the rear feels like it wants to come around, almost like im driving without a rear sway bar..
like the front is stiff but the back Leaaans around each turn..
I tighted up all 4 tires x 5 lugs after tightening on the jack so its not like the tires are loose and they are all pointed in the proper directions (arrows going forward)
This is coming from a very worn set of re92's, about all i can think is the sidewall is much softer and the 19mm sway in the back is overloading the sidewalls, but theres no outer wear on the tires
Any ideas or suggestions??
Thanks

it's a combination of sidewall compliance and tread squirm and is totally normal for a winter tire. Since the tread is like 13/32 and heavily siped, it's not stiff at all so it moves under your cars weight. Feels like you'd go flying off the road if you jiggled the steering wheel hard.

Yeah, doesn't seem to out of the ordinary for an all-out winter tire. I'd also check the tire pressures if you haven't done that yet.

I'd try more pressure. Start off with maybe 35psi cold and tweak from there. I personally like to run a bit higher pressure in the front than the rear.
