There's a huge thread about 17" vs 20" rims & ride quality. Is this really a fair question to ask?
Wouldn't it be better to compare tread & sidewall size instead of rim size? If you go up in rim size, but the sidewall length increases, shouldn't the ride quality increase as well (assuming you don't inflate to the max PSI)?
Let's start with two examples:
Example 1: 265/70r17 vs 35x12.5x17
Example 2: 265/70r17 vs 35x12.5x20
Am I wrong to assume to that the ride quality between the stock tire & a 35" on 20s should ride about the same since the sidewall is basically the same (assuming we're comparing the exact same model & brand of tire) or am I missing something?
