Harsh ride of 2010 GS

Recommended Posts

Just bought for my wife a 2010 GS350 with 18in wheels and new Dunlop Signature HP 40 profile tires.  The ride is much harsher than any of my previous Lexus vehicles, including her 05 GS300.  She blames the 40 profile tires.  Would changing to a different tire help or am I going to have to change to a 17in wheel with a higher profile tire?  Thanks for any recommendations.

One follow-up question.  Can I exchange the wheels with the 16in wheels on my 05 GS300? I know it won't handle as well, but she is much more interested in comfort.  The harsher ride doesn't bother me.

Make sure the struts and strut mounts are in good shape, they usually wear out at 50-60k
