    The bigger tires are going to grab more of the road.
    Plus they are bigger and heaver, so you probably need better shocks
    Make sure everything in bolted and secure.

    Have the shop set the caster to around 2.9* or 3*.

    OM replyed to. You can have more caster added, if the truck still has wandering issues. Also, Be sure the tire pressure is at the correct setting.
