I didn't mean feel for comfort, I meant feel for communication with the surface. Sloppy suspension has little communication with the ground, while very tight (good) suspension has great communication with the ground - you'll feel every little bump.

This is simply not true and it's very easy to prove. Take a bone-stock base Camaro (with the least capable suspension in the line) and get a baseline run on it's OE all-season tires. Then swap to competition-oriented tires (take your pick of any that come in the OE size) and take a new test run. The stopwatch will record a huge improvement in speed. Tires are easily the single best improvement you can make to any car on the basis of bang for the buck.

Laugh all you want, but the stopwatch proves all. $1500 in tire upgrades produces much faster lap times than $1500 in suspension upgrades while keeping the OE tires.
