    Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    Got back to SW Colorado again this fall and did the most-serious 4-wheeling I've ever done. This particular trip started in Silverton. We went up the w. part of CO-110, then n. thru Hurricane Pass, then past Como Lake, and then to this little bowl pictured here. While I walked about the top trying to pick the lesser of 4 evils, a big Ford pickup arrived form the north. He twice tried driving up the easiest-looking of the 4 and eventually turned around and went back down. I carefully and slowly negotiated the short-but-steep hill. We proceeded down Poughkeepsie Gulch and joined Engineer Pass Road, the northern end of what's called the Alpine Loop. I punctured another tire (apparently with one of the billions of very sharp rocks on these old mining roads) and before I realized it, ruined a pair of rims on one of my 3-piece wheels.

    This is my first attempt at posting a pic here-- [image][/image]

    All the pics are here.

    The CT performed flawlessly and really impressed some hard-core 4-wheelers.

    Great pictures Jeffrey, as always!
    Thanks a lot.
    Always nice to see a Cayenne owner who uses his car properly!

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    Great photos Jeffrey!

    Thanks for posting.

    It looks like it was a very interesting trip. Wish I could have been there. Maybe I can make it next year.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    Beautiful scenery, beautiful truck, beautiful pics, - except, of course, the ones of your poor rims, - tough luck. At least you got a great trip out of the deal. Thanks very much for posting.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    oh my God, God, you are soooo good! LOL

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    Wow!! Jeffrey what a great picture and also it's good to have you again after a long long time.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    woah! taking those pics require skills! beautiful scenery!

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    I noticed that you're rolling on some Toyo Proxes S/T. How do you like them and have you tried them on snow?

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    tech, I started with 5 of the Toyo S/Ts on those wheels and have broken 4 of them. I've replaced the last 2 with Hankook Ventus ST RH06s, which come with a factory road-hazard warranty (that I haven't had to use yet). The Hancook is a little quieter, too.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    I'm looking for a set of 275/40-20 all-season tires and found only two with M+S ratings which are the Toyo Proxes S/T and Hankook Ventus ST RH06. I'd like to be able to take my Cayenne S to the snow without changing weels. Your feedback is appreciated. Do you know of other brands with M+S rated tires for the 20's? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Cayenne Turbo in the CO rocks again

    I ordered new rims for this wheel...almost $1600 for TWO pairs, delivered. When I bought the wheels 2-1/4 years ago, they were about $950 each, delivered.


    As I've told others, I bought it to USE, not to park in my garage.
