Don't forget what the man said, "...people will always someone dumber than you." Of course we both know the truth about unsprung weight and the additional rotation mass of having the rim further from the point of axis.
Please, all this for a conversation about the guy feeling like the ride was better with the larger wheels after he himself test drove it. Go ahead and ride around on your 15 inch wheels feeling all scientific. A smarter man would just upgrade the brakes to tame all that "additional mass," unsprung weight, junk in the trunk whatever. And add more power to the engine to compensate.
I digress, the guy said the ride was more comfortable with the larger wheels. So put your physics on that.
I understand the "physics" behind everything you're saying, but you've gone subatomic on a visceral element. Pardon me I may have been to broad in my statement to satisfy your attention to minutiae.
Clearly we all understand the "truth of additional rotational mass and unsprung weight."
Nobody was arguing anything about unsprung weight and handling. In fact no body was arguing anything until you chimed in with your dismissals.
I used a simple analogy to explain a simple concept. It was apples to apples just not Fiji's to Fiji's. You think your smart, but you're really just a jerk.
