i have had hankook ATM's 245/65/17 for about 3 years after a poor experience on 22 tech art reps...It's time to replace soon and I am looking at the same size in a more aggressive light mud/at tire from Hercules tire, same hardness.

I have been trying out a FJ cruiser for my daily commuter and it's an old bump around rig but the Cayenne stability and handling after 10 years of ownership makes me miss the ease of use even in rugged tires.

Default Tire size limit?

Has anyone run 275/50-20's on their Cayenne? Diameter is +/-30.8. Based upon the posts I've read, it seems like they would fit diameter wise, but with this width wondering if they would rub on tight turns. Thoughts/experience? Thanks, Doug

Update - I test installed this size tire today - it does not rub at normal ride height; it does rub slightly at lower ride height setting. I chose not to purchase the tires in this size and to go one size smaller - 275/45-20.

just to be safe, you did check to make sure the wheels can support the Cayenne load....

Thank you for the informative post!

I think I am going to look into some Coral blue Wheels and paint the calipers Gulf Orang..........

Braid wheels are made for racing and this set was made for a Touareg Raid T1.

Any reviews about this product?

I want to lift my Cayenne 1 inch and i think this product is a quick solution without changing all the suspension or the springs...

You should give the Goodyear Duratracs a try after those wear out. They have far superior wet surface and mud grip.

The ClubTouareg guys figured this one out...1-2.5 max is the best with steel suspension. I just want a level ride and maybe simple 2.25 up front and 2 in back is best. Then possible for a good shop and do fortune auto or BC Coil overs....

Based on my limited experience and what I've read from everyone's experiences with 265/65R18's at normal ride height on cars with air suspension, you should have no problem going one profile step lower.

Hello everyone! This will be my first post (well second now) to the forum. My wife and I just bought our first Porsche, a 2005 Cayenne Turbo, about a month ago. After perusing the various forms I took the leap and bought a full set of 18 inch stock wheels and installed 265/65R18 Kumho Road Venture AT51 all terrains. After one challenging but damage free excursion up a little used, overgrown, rocky forest road here in the western Cascades and a few street miles I can report no rubbing/clearance with the tires.

On a side note, this trip confirmed my long-held desire to get a Cayenne. It's a thrill to drive on the pavement and a very competent off-road vehicle as well.




What is it about humans in the forest? Saw this at the very top of a difficult
and rocky climb up a seldom used and overgrown Forest Service Rd.

I am running 255/60-19s which are about 31x10.5". There is not a lot of clearance but I have yet to hear or see them rub. They work great on our SW CO jeep roads, haven't even felt the need to air down yet either.

That makes total sense. The 265/65R18 are about 31.5" and 10.7".

Mine are very close to the upper suspension bolt and maybe 1/2" off the fender liner when turned in, suspension in "normal".

I wasn't sure if the Cayenne was worthy of a set of KO2's, and the wheels I would have to buy as well but, that may be the next tire change. I am very happy with the GoodYears right now. Hopefully they work in the snow too.
