    Michelin Diamaris vs Continental 4x4 Sport Contact

    Michelin Diamaris: 285/35/22
    Continental: 295/30/22

    I will need one of them for my wheel, does anyone have any experiences on these?

    Re: Michelin Diamaris vs Continental 4x4 Sport Contact

    What is it Michelin Diamiris? Is it high performance for track?

    I was planning to put Michelin PS2 next week on my TT.

    The Michelin Diamaris is a special 4x4 SUV tire for the street. I don't think you could use it on your 996 TT:

    To DEETZ: go for the Diamaris, it is a pretty good tire for the Cayenne. Unfortunately the 22'' version has as a lower load index than the 20'' version and you can't get a N-speced version which is actually a bad thing.
    Interesting (just to understand the difference between N-classified tires and the original manufacturer version): the "original" Michelin Diamaris in the 275/40-20 size has a W speed index and a 102 load index. The Porsche N0 classified Michelin Diamaris in the same size has a Y speed index and a 106 load index. My advice to people who care about high performance AND safety: stay with the Porsche specs on the Cayenne. I know those 22'' wheels look great and I almost fell for them too but if look isn't the first priority but performance and safety, stay with the Porsche 20'' wheels.

    As far as I know, there are now 4 tires available for the Cayenne in 20'' size: the Michelin Diamaris, the Conti 4x4, the Pirelli P-Zero Rosso and the Dunlop SP9000. All with N0 classification and Porsche approval.

    thanks RC for the explanation. My friend has the Diamaris on his car and he told me that the Conti rides so much better. I think I am going with the conti tires

    Doesn't make much sense...?
    I drove the Diamaris N0 for more than 700 km now, not only very aggressive on dry pavement but also on wet streets.
    The Diamaris N0 is absolutely great.

    alright! I'll think about it again once I get my wheels. Still saving some $$, its so expensive just for wheels LOL
