Improper tire balance. Possibly didn't use a RoadForce balancer.
OR, tires are cold and cupped, need to warm up.

I work at a tire shop. What kind did you buy? It's possible that you have a defective tire. I've seen this a lot when the tech doesn't watch the tire being balanced and misses the tire move high and low. Take it to the place you bought them and have them road force the tires on the front. Anything over .20 is too much for me.

If the front tires are not new they might have uneven wear or inside chop with high and low spots that will cause wheel shake
