two things come to mind-belt tension and/or wheel alignment...

go back to were you had the tire installed and ask them to cheak it out for you like they said above belt tenshion or out of alinment

I agree, your belt is likely too tight. Take it back to the shop that installed the tire. FYI, there is no need to mess with the belt adjustment/alignment when changing a tire. You just have to knock the axle out and take the wheel off. My '00 RKC has 48k on it. I have never adjusted the belt.
