Tire pressures make a huge difference in ride quality on the WK2.
I recently had a puncture repaired and the shop also adjusted the pressures on all tires. I could feel the harshness right away. They had the pressures between 37-38 psi instead of the recommended 36 psi for the 20" tires. Once corrected, the ride was back to smooth? I also noted a hint of vibration on braking and just re-torquing the lug nuts to specifications took it away. This was a front tire they had worked on and two lugs were way over tightened. BTW, this was NOT done at a Jeep dealership.
Likewise, when I first installed 18" winter tires, I assumed the same 36 psi as my 20's and the ride was so harsh until I realized the 18's only needed 33 psi.
