Better Ride Tires For 2013 Mazda 3

My previous car was a 2009 Mazda 3 which had P195/65Rx15 tires. My new 2013 Mazda 3 has 205/55Rx16 tires. The lower profile tires on 16 inch wheels make the new Mazda's ride much rougher than my previous model. (They are Toyo A20 tires.)

Has anybody with similar size Mazda 3 wheels and tires been concerned about the vehicles ride on small bumps and generally rougher pavement? If so, I would like to know if you have had any success in making improvements without going down to a 15 inch wheel package, and if so, I would like to hear the details.

My cousin has the same tire spec as yours but replaced his toyo tires with falken. He order them from 4wheelonline. He said that the ride comfort improved and less road noise. Another to check is the tire pressure. He filled them with nitro at 30psi.
