335xi GT transmission kicking down isse

Hi, everyone,
I am experiencing some transmission problem since I changed my summer tire to winter tire. My orginal rim set is 19inches staggered, no it is 18 inches uniform rims. Now if I release the gas paddle or hit brake slightly, during the process of gear-down, when the rpm decrease to roughly 1000, I feel car is hesitating whether to shift down, then I can feel the car sways back and forth, not violently but noticable. Accelerating is all fine, no power lose, no error signal light. is that a wheel alignment issue or shifting logic problem? Anyone is welcomed to give suggestions. Thanks.

Wheels straight? Wheels balanced correctly? Lug bolts torqued correctly?

I have asked the tire store to do the wheel balance again, it didn't help, wonder did they do the work correctly.
