Makes for rough ride
I imagine so. 80 lbs sounds ginormous! I would check with the dealer, try to get it adjusted.

SOURCE: the car rides rough.
Dear Alban: You may not like the answer, but the reality of the issue is this: The lower the profile the tire is, the less time there is for irregularities in the road to be absorbed. Low profile tires have very stiff sidewalls which equates into little in the way of flexing. The car was designed for 15" wheels with a totally different profile tire. There is always a trade off with ride and handing traits when big changes are made with wheels and tires. The big rims and low profile tires are the rage right now and this is a very big problem that I run across when cars come into my shop and customers complain about the ride and road noise. Whether it is a 300ZX or a Mercedes, makes no difference, I still get the same complaint. Some cars display the problem to a slight degree and others, it is very pronounced in. There is not a shock or strut in the world that will solve this problem. Your only solution if you can't live with the ride of a log wagon, is to get rid if the wheels and get something with a tire that has some distance between the road and the rim. mybunkey

you need to replace only the shock cartridges. Also have the tires rebalanced.

Don't go to the dealer, unless you just have too much money. Call around to tire shops in your area and see if anyone has a "Bar-Tech" tool or a similar device that will reset your sensors for you and HUGE savings.

Do you have a full-size spare tire? If so, it too is checked via the Tire Pressure Warning System. Perhaps it is low, this is quite commonly omitted when setting tire pressures. If you have a temporary spare tire, it is not checked. If you have no full-size spare, one of the TWPS sensors may have been damaged by your tire changer. This can happen very easily, if the changer is not careful whilst dis-mounting the tires. A Toyota dealership has a special service tool that will check each of the sensors for output, while on the car. If a sensor is found to be bad, the tester will find it.
