Also, it's quite possible the new rear tires grip better than the stock ones did, and that same amount of throttle now sends the nose skyward instead of inducing more wheel spin as the stockers did.

Making alterations to the suspension, specifically lowering front preload to drop ride height and stiffening the rear shock's compression and/or preload should help some.
+1..I'd switch back to the stock tires if you have them or at least with a 21" or taller Rear tire.
