GLE 43 amg coupe - road behaviour

Dear all,

Do any of you are aware of road behaviour issues with the GLE 43 amg coupe / GLE 450 amg coup?

I was planning to buy one, but now I was informed that there are issues with the road behaviour of the vehicle when equiped with 22 inch wheels.

Apparently, the car could leave its track and break out about 5cm - 10cm on a straight line when driving over a sewer lid or little bump in the road...

Do any of you have heared similar news or do any of you have experience with this?

kind regards,
Stijn

Where did you hear about this? It's news to me. Might be best to cross reference that with some professionals in the industry, maybe with a high end wheel and tire shop.

I have a 2016 GLE 450 AMG with ~19k miles and 22" wheels, and have noticed anything like that at all. They key is to use the proper tire pressure. I have had a tire chain inflate them to max pressure on the door panel, which is far too high and makes the ride very harsh. The correct pressures are listed inside the fuel door. I usually add a few PSI to each.

Definitely haven't heard anything like that either. @andyaz is right though. Tire pressure will drastically change the way these ride. Make sure you get it right and everything will be good to go.
