Just took my car in for 5,000 mile service and the "recall". The loaner they gave me was Q50 Premium awd with 17" wheels. Mine is awd sport with 19s. What a difference in the way the cars ride on the crappy pothole laden roads here on Long Island! With mine i get jarred with every bump and hole. The loaner with 17s glides over them. Not sure if it is due to tire size, the suspension, or both. On a decently paved road i prefer mine. Also, the car looks so much better with the 19 inch rims. Sort of ordinary looking with the 17s

It's better to look good than to feel good.

The run flats carry through much more harshness through their rigid walls. They are also very easy to damage with potholes. Road hazard is a must as they are expensive.

What model? Gas or hybrid?

On a hybrid. You get the sport suspension on 17's and 19's.
I couldn't tell the ride difference between a hybrid and hybrid sport.

If you have a 3.7L then it's probably more from the sport suspension.
Not the tires.

For the time I had them on my BMW, I thought that they were more damage resistant to potholes. I attributed that to the stiffer sidewalls.

I have managed to avoid potholes with the Q, so far.

YMMV

The Q50 premium loaner is 17" with non sport suspension.
Your Q50S AWD is 19" with sport suspension.
That's pretty much your answer there.

The sport and accessory wheels are much lower profile too, so this will make them ride much harder.
