Nope I know it will drive terrible on them wheels. It's not rocket science to know the bigger the wheel the worse the drive.

What is your rim and tire setup now? Does it ride to your level of satisfaction?

I asked what size "rim and tire"? It also wasn't clear what you had prior to your stock wheels. I don't know what "2ps" . Forgive my ignorance.

265/40 R19 front and 295/35 R19 rear sorry I missed out the 19, before that I had the 20 inch wheels with 30 side walls and it was terrible. The bigger the wheels the less rubber so the harsher ride. I wouldn't mind sitting in the passenger seat just to feel how bad it really is

Can you provide details what specifically made the ride harsh?

You feel every single crack in the road, very stiff side walls with little rubber gives it a bumpy sold feel, makes the car rattle, adduced vibration, basically ruins the comfort of that lovely car yoy have

I originally had stock 19s with run flats and the ride seemed harsher with that setup. Of course if you hit any major pothole you will feel it with either size wheel (19 or 22). Aside from that the ride is smooth.

Sorry to hear your experiences were different.
I am happy to hear that switching from 20s to 19s worked out for you. Enjoy your ride. I certainly enjoy mine.
