    18" Porsche N-spec Snow Tires?

    Anybody have any experience with the recommended Porsche N-spec snow tires for the Cayenne: Dunlop Grandtrek WT M2 N0 (235 /60 R 18 107 H XL)(130 mph) or Pirelli Scorpion A/T N0 (235/60 R 18 107 T XL)(118 mph)? The Dunlops have a higher speed rating, finer siping, and a less agressive lug pattern then the Pirellis. I've had Blizzak LM-22's, which are probably more similar to the Dunlops, on my old X5 and they worked great in the snow. We rarely have snow in Seattle, but the ski slopes are an hour away, so the roads go from dry to ice, slush, packed snow, unpacked snow, when we go skiing. I'd appreciate any thoughts on these two tires and more generally on the pros and cons of Porsche N-spec tires. Thanks.

    Re: 18" Porsche N-spec Snow Tires?

    Well, it almost never snows here where I live so you should keep that in mind when weighing the value of my advice. I doubt the Pirelli is any great snow tire. It may be better in the snow than some of the other recommended tires but it is really an off-road tire. Stick with the Dunlop.

    The N spec is significant and assures certain performance standards have been met. If you choose to use something else your on your own so choose carefully.

    Re: 18" Porsche N-spec Snow Tires?

    You should go with N-specced tires, that's for sure.
    Don't forget about the weight of the Cayenne and other issues like PASM, performance, etc.
    I have the Dunlop M2 on my ML55 and I can highly recommend this tire. I've been to Austria last winter and drove up a bob sleigh track up to a height of more than 2000 meters with the ML55 and only the M2 tires, no chains. Unbelievable performance, even in snow but also in the dry.
