I agree with stevenva that air pressure will make a bigger difference than just having taller sidewalls - the 60 series are plenty tall for a smooth ride.The ride of my 2015 Outback is stiffer than what I prefer. Can I expect a sofer ride by replacing the 225/60R18s with a smaller wheel and taller rubber. Anyone do it. Is the ride noticeable softer. What size rim/tire combo?
Subaru is not known for a comfortable ride? Is that really what the masses think? I have never heard this before. My Outback has the most comfortable ride of any SUV I have owned.Subaru's are not know to be the most comfortable ride. You can pretty much feel even a small pebble if you run over it. I imagine any changes you make will not help much.
