The wires going from the wheel bearing to the Brake Computer get messed up on the 2nd gen W-Body's sometimes. There's a Service Bulletin somewhere. I'll find it later for you.

Mine does that occasionally but I generally try not to accelerate too much while turning because it's easy to lose traction on the inside tire and not good for the differential.

My theory was that when turning, one tire is going to be spinning at a different speed which is exactly what the traction control computer looks for. The bogging down might be because the traction control is kicking in. I believe it limits or cuts fueling to certain/multiple cylinders but i'm not 100% sure on that.

But if it's only doing it after getting new tires, maybe it is something to do with the wiring and the wally-world people messed something up. Walmart does tire service?? I don't think I would even trust them changing my oil let alone my tires Shocked

Sound like the wire harness that connects to the hub may have been pulled to hard and/or separated at some point during the tire change... going strait it has a connection but when you turn and it is extended it separates activating the traction control which causes your car to bog/act strange

Mine got screwed up after a tire change. The Service Trac soon, and ABS light came on, and wouldn't shut off till I restarted. It did this when turning and accelerateing as well, mostly in reverse though.
I know it's not the same issue, but I would start by pulling the plugs behind the wheels for the sensors, cleaning them out, checking the wires for damage, and plugging them back in tight. That is all I did to mine, and it hasn't happened since.

Is this problem only on certain models/years?

I'll be replacing struts tonight and don't want to be pulling any wires...

Judge for yourself. Oh, and new tires trend to be slipperty for the first few miles. It may just go away after the tires get to their usual stickiness.
