I am thinking of going with different wheels, maybe 15" or 14" with 75's, to make it ride smoother. Is there any reason why I couldn't do that, and might it help with the rough ride?
Hello there,just thouight id fill you in on why they went with the 16inch vs the 15inch wheel and tire pkg,in 1998 ford upgraded the braking system including bigger calipers and rotors on the front and rear,the increase in rotor diameter ment that a 15 inch wheel will not fit,there isnt enogh clearence between the caliper and the wheel to allow the wheel to move freely.
