All excellent recommendations here so far, and I'll go back to the very first few words in your opening statement "I'm fairly new to riding"
I'd tell ya to get some seat time on the thing, get used to its behaviors and "feel", before going after wheels/tires/suspension/etc. It's just like tuning a racecar, you don't make sweeping major changes after an unexpected result, but rather, minor ones.
I'd take the air pressures up a few psi in your tires, get rid of some of that sidewall roll/flex, and grab you a set of wheel spacers. Those are cheap/easy to install/completely reversible, and in a "minor", say 1" width, really shouldn't bother the wheel bearings.
Other than that, like I said, just ride it. I also like DrZ idea of going and ahead and manually "tipping it", to get a feel for the point of no return. It's likely a lot more than your seat of the pants meter is leading you to believe. If your other riding mates are traversing the same terrain without too much drama, again, it may be more of your unfamiliarity with the bikes limitations, than the bike itself.
