Comfy Ride - is it tire size, tire type, rim size, rim type or ALL of the above
There is always question regarding having a "comfortable" ride in the SLK and owners wanting slim tires and/or smaller rim sizes... I have often wondered if there is a generic definition of "comfortable ride" and how do we each understand that term to mean.
For me riding low profile 19" rims wrapped with Conti DWS06 A/S tires, with large sizes (235 f/265 r) I find the ride very comfortable on all roads... Yet, my setup will be considered rough and harsh by the "generic" comfortable ride mode.
So I have a poll to this thread. What do you consider defines "comfortable ride" to you WRT the SLK
