tracking on highway

I took a trip with my new Jk recently and the tracking on highway was bad. Now, I'm not new to Jeeps but it seems new JK doesn't hold a lane like my '95 YK does. The dealership replaced the 225/75x16 with 255/75x17 when I bought it. I made sure he reflashed the computer but he maintains front wheel alignment was the same for both size tires and wheels. I know Jeeps don't track down the highway like a 4-dr. sedan, and that's one of the reasons I like 'em, but this one seems bad. Any input?

Tire pressure too high would be first thing to check

Was the alignment actually checked? There have been instances where alignments have been off on new JK's. I can tell you that after 4 yrs. my 10 Rubicon tracks perfectly and has always tracked straight since new. At times I can let go of the wheel if I want without it drifting.
