suspension / tires rough enough?

Running 17" ssr runflats at recommended 33/36 cold psi, cannot find any worn suspension... minor bumps jar the car like I jumped a hill on a dirt bike. I know runflats add some stiffness but they're on my vette and nowhere near this harsh. You guys running lower pressures?

The recommended inflation pressure is on the inside of the driver door and i just go by that. Im on lowering springs and shocks and its a bit rough during the winter when i still have my runflats on (non RFTs in the summer).. It might be the cold weather is changing the viscosity of the oil in the shocks and making it harsher. I totally understand as the roads where I am are probably just as bad as michigan's. i guess its just something we have to deal with
