You have a tire that is wider and taller so their is more rotating mass and the tire has larger contact patch. Those two things are probably the reason why you are noticing a difference in the way the car drives. The RSA's are ok but usually they are overpriced.
I bought that size cause someone else did on here too and said they have gotten 90k riding on it. I didn't think it would be an issue. Per tire rack, the BFGR tires are 25.7" in diameter, compared to Dunlop at 25.2" in diameter.

I did want a little wider tire as the stock ones were skinny. Width on BFGR is 8.2", compared to 7.9".
