Took advantage of the perfect spring like weather in the North east today and did about 300 miles on the back roads of Pennsylvania.

The highlights of the day were “ Pennsylvania’s Tail of the Dragon “ - Route 125 from Jonestown, PA to Shamokin, PA.

Union Chapel to Shamokin

Then I started to wandered towards home and hit the Weatherly Hill Climb route. The hill climb course is only a mile but theres some extremely challenging turns on it.

Gave her a good wash after a year of storage (less 1 week in the middle). Changed the oil too and decided to use something different (used Mobil 1 and Liqui Moly in the past)

Hi guys, I have a 981 base Cayman and am thinking of replacing my stock 19" rims with 20" Carrera S rims.

Do you guys think it is worth it? Does the 20" make your ride significantly more uncomfortable?

Thanks.

I had 20" Carrera S wheels on my last two Boxsters, never really minded the comfort level and although I think there will be a slight change coming from 19" IMHO it is livable. The biggest difference I noticed was between the 18" winter set and the 20" summer, that was night and day!

It is a given that the 20" wheel/tire combo is a rougher ride, I think it is up to the individual as to what they find acceptable.

Yes bigger wheel is worse ride; it's the sidewall that makes for a better ride. Change from a 35 to a 45 and it will ride better but perform worst for DE AX.
Also biggest different is run-flat to non run-flats then you will really feel a nicer ride even with the same bias.
