Back to original OP Frank B....hope my post made sense. I still reckon tyre wall stiffness plays a huge part in this.

If I leave the tyres at the mid range of 38 psi it is a smooth as you like. If you add in a stiff sidewall such as 101v rated and then tyres fully inflated to 41 psi for fully laden weight suddenly there is no compliance and ALL the weight is borne by the car suspension, hence the pitching sensation.

What psi do you run your tyres at and what is your tyre sidewall rating?
