2015 Acura TLX: Good Sidewall Helps Make a Smooth Ride

2015 Acura TLX

I really like the way our long-term 2015 Acura TLX rides, both on the highway and in the city. Over broken, battered and practically-cobbled surfaces, it feels smooth and generally unfazed. Part of the credit for this gentle ride goes to the TLX's suspension, but I think the tires deserve some credit, too.

The TLX's tires measure 225/50/18, meaning they have 4.43 inches of sidewall. That's not the tallest sidewall in the world but it goes a long way towards soaking up road imperfections and providing a comfortable ride. Acura could've gone with a sportier tire setup and a thinner sidewall, but for comfort's sake, I'm glad they didn't.
