    winter tyre?

    On my Cayenne turbo I have the 20" wheels. Living in South-Germany requires me to change in novembre to winter tyres. Are their 20" winter tyres? Or should I buy 18" wheels for the winter tyres?

    Greetings

    Re: winter tyre?

    I don't know if there are dedicated 20" winter tires out there. There are M+S tires available in the 20" size that folks seem to be happy with. Search for "Toyo Proxes" on this forum and you will get some hits.

    In addition to the tread and compound factors, you're going to get the best winter performance from a narrow and tall tire. It's going to be hard for anything mounted on your 20" rims to beat the 235/60-18s size that Porsche recommends.

    That said, if you plan on going with bigger brakes down the line you'll probably need to step up to at least 19" wheels.

    hello mumbasic,

    there are winter tyres for 20" cayenne rims.

    We have them on my fathers cayenne. I drove in St. Moritz last year. No problem to drive on snow or ice, only the weight of the cayenne is the problem . Breaking is a bit more difficult than with other cars on snow.


    It is a continental 275/40 R 20 106V XL FR. You can drive 240 km/h with it (V - version).

    Perhaps I can find a picture of it...

    Re: winter tyre?

    and here is a picture.

    You can see, that the cayenne has got 20" sport design rims, and if you look close, you can discover the winter tyre!!

    I hope for a good winter season this year...

    Re: winter tyre?

    Pirelli lists a 275/40-20 Scorpion ice & snow for SUV's on their USA website. I know traction and handling with a narrower tire is better in winter, but if you want to stay with the 20" rims and get a dedeicated snow it is available in an OEM size.

    Re: winter tyre?

    Yeah, thank you guys. I have looked at the Continental webpage and found even two types: 275 and 295!!

    Now the Black Forrest, Swiss and Austrian hills can come my Cayenne will be prepared.

    Greetings

    Adnan
