You can move any window from floating to tiled with floating disable (or toggle between states with floating toggle). You can bind it to a key so that you may change it after the window opens.

You can also add a statement like this to your configuration:

for_window [title="wine"] floating disable

This would force any window with "wine" in its title to start in tiled mode. See here and here for more information on how to use window criteria. You can use xprop or xwininfo to get additional information about windows (class, window_role)
