I think that is why I recognize the name. I used to think you guys were the same person, just changed your last name like DJ's used to do.

Anyway, thanks for the help!

Default Update:

I have had these BFG T/A's for 25,000 miles and love them! The look is good, no rubbing with air suspension at normal for street and high for off-road. They take a pretty good bashing, I showed up in places that people were amazed to see a Cayenne at. Still have plenty of miles left on them.

Which height are they at in your photo? Do you get any rubbing or issues at the low setting? I've been trying to find some off road tires for my 955, but I'm having issues deciding on the size. Have you ever run those in the snow?

I have 265/65/18 and it doesn't rub at all, even on low.

I had the setting at normal in that photo. I did not have any rubbing at all. I did not run these at the low setting at any time though.

I have never has the cayenne in snow as I live in S Cal now, but have used BFG T/A's plenty of times in the snow with no problems.

all in all the set up works very well, I like the way it looks too!

I've had the 265/65/18s on for a couple of years now. (The Transsyberia rally size) with zero issues.

I forget, are you also running bfg's cole? Do you run them all year or swap in "summers". Can you comment on road noise, wet performance and side wall flex? I dont have 20" wheels yet for summers and so would be running just 18's. Really love the look of the transsyberia size just don't want to compromise the on road performance "too much".

They are the BFG ATs just like the Transsyberia rally cars.

So it's up to you to decide how much "performance is lost", they did win the rallies!!


I really wasn't driving my CTT at all in the summer so I sold my 22" summers and just ran the 18s all the time. (I've got too many "summer only" cars/bikes to drive in the summer.)

My wife sold her S6 and started using the Cayenne to commute in though this last year. So it started seeing some summer use again.

The BFGs fine for normal daily use but don't really stick like a sports car tire should. They side easier than a true performance tire would. But that is still way beyond the limits of legal, sane street use!

On really cold days(30 and below) and sick pavement they don't hold back the turbo very well and you get wheel spin on HEAVY acceleration. (My turbo is also chipped and a few other minor supporting mods)


I've never really craved stickier tires on the CTT. I LOVE the way it looks compared to stock tires. I love that the tires are taller than curbs so I don't worry about rash. I love the more rugged SUV feel!
The load rating of the BFGs has been far better for towing. I often tow up to 7700lbs with it.

I might miss the slight performance loss if I didn't have other, more fun to drive fast, cars/bikes.

Just an update.

First off, my CS is on H&R/Cargraphic sport springs which lowered it a bit. I traditionally run the 20" rims with 275/40R20 tires. Because of the car being lowered I couldn't find any real references for what could be run on the OEM 18" rims. My goals were to find a tire that had great traction, was good in mud, snow, dry dirt, had a high load capacity for towing, had a high speed rating, and came in a size that I could fit while being lowered. I ruled out the 265/65R18 size as I didn't think that would fit. Good decision as it turns out. I settled on a 260/60R18 which fit and allowed for full turning with a minimum clearance of about a half inch to an inch at the least amount. Ironically the ONLY tire that fits all my wants and comes in this size (Or something else comparable) is the Goodyear Duratrac. Even though it's a different tire than what Cole is running I'd say that my review would be on par with his. The Duratrac is a mud-terrain / all-terrain hybrid. So far I've run it through some rough stuff, and I couldn't be happier. It just keeps chugging the car along. I also love the aggressive sidewall and the way it looks on the car. Now if only I could find a real grill guard/bull bar!

Here's some pictures. Notice the difference between the 275/40R20 and the 260/60R18...I was really not sure it was going to fit until it was finally on! About a 2 inch difference. Love it!
