Also could the srt get tiresome with its big wide wheels? do they become noisy or unsettled in uneven pavement?
I am looking for feedback from people who have own this Srtīs for sometime now... I donīt want to buy the srt and some time later find out the novelty wears out pretty quick!
I made this same switch at the end of the year, 2013 V8 Summit to 2014 loaded SRT. Here are my impressions so far.
Gas mileage is about the same, probably helps have the new trans in the SRT.
Comfort definitely the SRT, I have the Laguna leather and it's softer and much more luxurious than the Summit.
As for tires/wheels, love the look but definitely notice more road noise and since the roads here in Chicago are so crappy you defiantly get bounced around a lot more. Also the large tires of the SRt seem to be a constant fight if the road is worn in with tracks, probably the only thing I'm not really happy with. I had a Cayenne with 20" wheels and did not have this problem so I'm not sure if it's the run flats or if they are a wider tire.
All in All the SRT is great and would not go back.
