I'm thinking of the Sport vs the Premium when my lease is up.

The Sport has the larger wheels. Does anyone know if this affects the ride quality? Do the larger wheels have a firmer ride?

I like the extra trim and interior on the Sport but I'm concerned the ride will be harsh with the larger wheels.

Thanks.

I would not think there would be much ride difference between 225x60x17 vs 225x55x18 on essentially the same vehicle. I find that brand and tread pattern are more significant. I've had 225x50x17 michelins that gave a better ride than anything else I've every purchased. You're dealer may let you keep a test vehicle for an overnight/extended test drive because you are a loyal customer.
