Cool wheels,air ,noise ride????

Our 04 PTGT (wife's car w/75000 mi's ) suffers from cross-corner rocking. Also makes noise in the front end. All tie rod ends have been changed at 60k. Sway bar?? Wheels lose air even after dismounting tires and cleaning rims. Tired of checking them every couple of days! I'l like to change to a smaller wheel and a larger tire to get a softer-quieter ride. Any suggestions besides getting a different car? Thx, Bill

What kind of noise? Squeak, thunk, groan,....

You must have the chrome rims - they were poor quality.

TireRack - you can pick a wheel&Tire and they'll come sent to your house balanced and ready to bolt on.
