Anyone on here running 255 60 18 all season or summer tires? If so, how does the ride quality compare to the OEM 255 55 18s? I am thinking of adding a bit more sidewall to handle bumpy roads better.

go for it, have been running this size for years, makes the ride more comfortable and much better suited for off road

I changed from the 255/55 x 18 to a Firestone Destination LE2 245/60 x 18 which is slightly taller and slightly narrower. It looks nice. It does have a more compliant ride and no problems, but I miss the firmness in the turns of the old size. I kinda regret it. I'm not even a very aggressive driver.

There is a neat website. Just Google "rimsntires" and at the page use the "Size Comparer" tool. It won't answer your question. But it's neat.
