I think most peoples idea of a harsh ride is an abrupt feel in either the steering wheel or seat of the pants when crossing expansion joints, lane markers, pavement transitions that are perpendicular to the direction of travel , etc. The RFT sidewall is stiffer & shorter which give it the ability remain on the rim with little to no internal pressure. It is the nature of the design.
