So, are you going to find the cause of the wobble? Bad 35 maybe? Or is there an issue now hidden, for the moment, by a heavier tire?

Just a thought

Good luck with fix.

The fact that you had KM2s doesn't surprise me. I've heard a lot of people having vibration/wobble concerns with these tires (me included). Whether I stay with 35" tires or go to 37", I'm more than likely changing brands.
