Why do higher end models of MKX come with 20" wheels standard if larger wheels reduce smoothness of the ride?
Considering purchasing a Lincoln MKX Reserve Model, and, as far as I know, it comes standard with 20" wheels, vs. the Select Model with 18" wheels. Test drove the Select, it was a very smooth ride. In the meantime, I was told that the larger the wheel, the less smooth the ride. Is that true and why? Any way to get around that?
A larger wheel usually means a shorter sidewall thus a stiffer tire, and a stiffer tire means a rougher ride. 20" tires are more expensive than the 18" tires when it comes time for replacement.
Own a 2018 with 21in wheels and tires and rides very rough do not like the ride at all!!
Own a 2018 with 21” wheels and rides like a conastoga wagon. Never buy another one and I’m retired from Ford.
