The composition of a tire has an effect on the ride. Some tires are stiff and don't flex as much as other. A supple tire does a good job of acting as a shock absorber making the ride smoother. Usually tires constructed with a high thread count will yeald a more supple ride. High thread count, look for 127 tpi.
