Unless the tires have been stored for a LONG time and in some strange pile arrangement, there really shouldn't be.

It used to be that if you parked your car for a long time (multiple weeks) and started to drive it, the tires may have a "flat spot" for the first few miles. But that's about the only thing I can think of.

Since they are new tires and probably they were just stacked up at the tire dealer on their sides in a tall stack, I can't think of how they would be more bumpy.

The last thing I can think of is if you switched to a different type of tire. (Went from "all season" to "all terrain", such as in SUV tires.) Going to a different type may make for a stiffer feel.

What kind/brand/make of tire did you get and what kind of vehicle do you have?
