    PASM vs. reg. suspension on rough roads with Cayman S

    What is the best suspension and wheel size for rough roads?

    My guess would be that stock 18s and PASM would give the softest ride, whereas 19s and no PASM the roughest. Or would the reg. suspension with 18s be just as soft or better?

    Anybody have experience on rough roads and can shed some light on this?

    Thanks.

    Re: PASM vs. reg. suspension on rough roads with Cayman S

    I think your first statement is correct. The 18s with PASM in standard mode would provide the most compliant ride on rough roads, and the 19s without PASM the roughest ride (except for 19s with PASM in sport mode, of course). What I'm not sure of, however, is whether 18s without PASM, or 19s with PASM would provide the better ride, just between those two intermediates.

    Re: PASM vs. reg. suspension on rough roads with Cayman S

    Thanks. I've got a 997 now with 18s and no PASM. I started with 19s, but removed them after 3k miles because the hard ride on Hawaii's third world roads just killed the enjoyment for me. The 18s make for a better ride and the car feels more "natural" if that makes senses. The 19s made the car feel like it was riding a railroad track, a little to planted for my tastes. But the dealership mechanics have told me that the Carrera S with 19s and PASM doesn't ride much better. However, I don't know this from experience. Though I've read in more than one auto magazine that 997s ride hard. And I of course agreed.

    So as I consider getting a Cayman, I want to make sure I get the right setup for some very bad roads. Aloha.
