Unhappy Ride quality

Anyone experienced a very rough ride after switching to 17 inch wheels ?

Re: Ride quality

you stiffin up your ride when you go to a low aspect ratio. The tire has a lot less flex(great for handling, not so good if you want a caddyesq ride). short of going back with the 15" or 16" you had, there is not much you can do.

69 x-11..LS1, 420.88 horse to the tires,750 Holley Ultra DP, Torquer V2, darksides headers, PRC heads, 10.8:1 compression, forged bottom end, 5 speed. 2008 King Ranch F150 4x4.
