If the problem was not there before the tires were installed, there's no reason to think that it isn't the tires, or something in the installation, that's causing the problem now.
The first thing I would do is remove the wheel and ensure there is nothing preventing a good fit-up, then reinstall the wheel and ensure lugnuts are torqued properly.
Second, I would get the tire rebalanced.
Third, I would check the tire for an out of round condition.
Fourth, I would move the wheel to the driver side of the car and see if the problem follows it. If it does, there's most likely a problem with that tire. If the problem remains on the passenger side, then I'd look at maybe replacing struts.
