Since convertibles obviously have different issues than coupes, I’m wondering what best bang for buck suspension upgrades would be specific for convertibles. Or are the best upgrades the same for coupes and convertibles?
I am on 18's on my 2013 V6 Vert. Enjoy the ride. Have never nodded that car other than getting some black rims and stayed with the exact size I was replacing.I’ve replaced the shocks and struts with Koni Actives and kept the original springs. And BMR’s CB010 cradle lockout kit with centering sleeves SCB766. I’m not into any form of racing nor do I want a low rider. But I did want it to ride better. I’ve been very pleased with the Actives. The car rides better and the cradle lockout kit has taken some of the shack out of the rear that the verts seem to amplify with the top up. I also went from the oe 20’s to 18’s on wheels.
I have the optional 19’s on my 2020 Ecoboost. Wish it had the 18s. The ride on patched or broken pavement is pretty bad. The 18s are definitely a bit more compliant. I think I’ll trade for a used or new GT with 18 inch wheels by next spring.I am on 18's on my 2013 V6 Vert. Enjoy the ride.

My 2020 CS is coming with 19's, but the aftermarket rims I really got my eye on only come in 18's.well they do make 19, but not the color I want. So gonna fully test the 19's while I wear out the first set of tires, and unless I am in love with the ride, I don't think I will mind dropping to the 18's.
Continental tires are the way to go, IMO. Go to Tire Rack for the best info. At least 2 different versions are specifically NOT for areas that have freezing temperatures. That even includes storage. My choice is going to be the DS-06 model.I have been thinking about the Continental Extreme Contacts. Know anything about them?
