Any update with putting 18" wheels on? Does it offer a smoother ride?
I have Elite with 2k miles and HATE HATE the amount of feedback coming thru steering wheel, even on smooth roads in Florida. To the point where I'm considering trading in and taking the loss. Otherwise I love the vehicle, and if 18" wheels smooth things out then would be happy to pay to swap.
Its also possible what I'm experiencing is vibration
I'm expecting to have a set of 18" wheels on the Passport in the next 1-2 weeks, and will report back when done. I'm not expecting it to make a difference in ride quality. Can you give some details about the issue with steering wheel feedback?
Well after going for a drive today, I feel now that it's like a wavey feeling, maybe a tire out of balance? Wavey or pulsating is best I can describe it, as if the road is wavey and the car is going up and down quickly. Mind u when I say up and down, it's very subtle.
I should have mentioned, at 500 miles i got nail in tire and it had to be replaced. Maybe they didn't balance the new tire...
It's hard to say, I'm not sure if I felt the "issue" before the tire replace. Guess I should go have all the tires checked for balance.
Oh, after they first replaced the tire, it was pulling to one side. They swapped the front tires from side to side and seemed to fix the pull. But is that the best solution? Maybe it's just a bad tire...
All speculation, it's hard to pinpoint what is actually annoying me... Lol
