Had enough of my car

Well,not completely.
Just the ride.
Itís dreadful, any ideas what I can do?

Iíve tried tyre pressure
New tyres
Shocks and struts.

Nothings worked and I can feel every bump in the road like driving on the moon.

Anything would be a great help!

Re: Had enough of my car

What wheels do you have fitted, the punto generally drives lovely on standard wheels but anything oversized and with low profile tyres the ride will go to hell, also what tyres do you have fitted, cheap tyres can be noisy and hard with little give in the side walls.

Also with all the new bits have you had a 4 wheel alignment done.

Re: Had enough of my car

My winter 165/70/14s give me a smoother ride for the winter road hell (and for going up kerbs in snowy hell) (ms plus 66 uniroyals)

I can feel the rough road alot with my alloys on 185/55/15s (Uniroyals sports 3)
But the grip is sooo kuch better... i can do a full emergency stop alot easier with these in good conditions

Ive had new rears sus
Front arms - arb bushes inner and outer
Tracking with new Track rod ends
Uppee shock mounts
And 3y/o springs and gas struts

So yea.... it does feel it im affriad

I run 32psi front and 30psi rear
Towing does make it better and worse 🤣
