Been car shopping recently and I really like the 2021 Passport Sport, but the one thing about it that I don't especially care for are the 20-inch wheels. Looks-wise, I think they're fine; it's just that I prefer a smoother ride. And even though the ride quality on the Passport Sport that I test-drove was generally OK as is, I also test-drove a 2021 Pilot with 18-inch wheels right after test-driving the Passport, and the Pilot's ride had the sort of smoothness that I prefer. (Again, not that there was anything "wrong" with the feel of the Passport's ride, per se... it's just that the Pilot's ride was more along the lines of what I like, and I'm guessing that the different wheel sizes factor into that.)
Anyway, was wondering about a few things. First, if I decide to buy the Passport Sport but wanted to change to different tires/wheels (specifically, 18-inch wheels), is that the sort of thing that a new car dealership would typically be willing to accommodate? Or would a customer request like that be thought of as crazy? The impression I get from the dealership is that they just want to sell the car as is, and be done with it.
The other main question that I had is, which 18-inch OEM wheel/tire combination(s) would be best to just get the smoothest ride on a new Passport? Note, too, that I don't envision terribly much off-road use (if any) if I go ahead and buy the car. And last, but not least — approximately how much would going from 20-inch wheels to 18-inch wheels cost in total?
