Question Tires

OK so I decided to go up two sizes on tires. I was only going to go up one but got a killer deal on some BFG All terrain TA's.
I know about the spead difference when going from factory size. My question is in the shocks...
I've noticed with the new tires at 60 to 70 mph, the handling gets a bit rough.
Is this due to the size, or tire? Should I get beefier shocks?
Thanks

When you handling's rough, do you mean the wheel shakes?

Are they balanced?? I think so, they said so. I'm taking them back to have them rechecked!

If not new, are they cupped?? no

How much air you running in them?? I haven't checked, but then again when they got mount and ballanced, they said thay are!

Well I'll let you know as soon as I get them checked!

Thanks
