2013 STi

Default Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60's Defective??

So on 12/18/2012 I put on a pair of new Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60s on my '13 STi. 225/45/17 with '06 Gold BBS wheels. What a NIGHTMARE. On the way home (we just had a little haill the day before), I was driving on the highway and the car felt disconnect from the car when moving lanes at 55MPH. It felt like hydroplaning. I have nearly collided with a car because the tires just don't turn well. I took the tires in the day after I got them to make sure they were put on right, and tightened to right properly.

Even at low 35mph speeds I feel like the tires are losing traction. On 2nd gear on all roads I lose traction and have to force shift myself into third to get going.

It has been really scary with these things on the car.

My question is:

Is this NORMAL for the LM-60? Even if it is I'm requesting an exchange with Discount tire.
The DOT# is 0312 (3rd week 2012?)

How can this be? Is there something wrong with my STi?
