Default 12" rims, lo-profile tires, rough ride?

Yamaha g29. I don't want to lift it but like the looks of bigger rims. Dealer suggested 10" rims for better ride, 12" would be too rough. All street driven, some a little bumpy, opinions. ..

Indeed, to fit 12" means that tire is going to have to be very thin. It will ride noticeably rougher than the 10 inchers.

I concur.

Tires are a "spring", less sidewall equals less spring.

10" lo pro tires will ride just as bad; need a '50' sidewall for good ride
