Interesting, I got the same tires, 18" though, 225/45
And the ride is more harsh than my runflat summer performance tires, I know winter tires will be a bit more choppy but figured since they weren't run flats it would be about equal, I was wrong. Maybe if you are going from 19" summers to 19" winters it feels the same, but 18" summers to 18" snow doesn't.

I wouldn't call it "bouncy" though, I can just feel the road more, like if it was put into sport suspension mode (which my xdrive doesn't have)
