    17's to 22's

    My Cayenne is 3 monthes old. Came with the factory 17" which are fine for the winters here. Looking to get a setup of 22" come spring. Question is, how will ride be effected? Also what will be the result of lowering the suspension?


    Re: 17's to 22's

    good question... in the same boat myself!


    Re: 17's to 22's

    I used to have an S with spring suspension, I changed it to Techart springs the ride got really really stiff, my wife hated it,LOL First I installed 20 inch wheels with Diamaris, the ride got rough, after the springs it got worst, that's what my wife said..but the handling is phenomenal, almost the same as the sport mode on PASM.
    If I were you I would try HandR springs they said the ride is better. But I'm sure with 22's it will be really bouncy at times, if youre the only one who drives the car, you would be fine, but me had to please the wife, you know what I mean:D

    Re: 17's to 22's


    Is there any recommendatation for a 20" tire that would make the ride acceptable or mildly comfortable?

    I'm getting the bigger rims primarily for looks, not performance. I just can't get my head around the tricycle wheels it came with.......


    Re: 17's to 22's

    Hi there, Electro & Charlie! I was asking those same questions and more when I was setting up my Turbo White Pepper last summer. I'm way happy with the outcome. I posted a lot of info here and on just do a search using my name and you will find some good info.

    A quick summary;

    I have the Techart lowering kit and love it. I recommend doing that first and driving it around a bit. Great feel, handling and look.

    I have the RG24 Champion 22" wheels and yes they are roungher riding as well as the lowering. I typically ride with the selector on sport/stiff so it obviously doesn't bother me. I went for the lowest weighing wheels I could find in a 22" for better unsprung weight and handling.

    Tires, I went for the Pirelli because of the look. I preffer the squared off big meaty agressive look over the Michelins but I will try the Michelins for the next set. They Michelins are suppose to be a better tire and they are quieter and more comfortable softer ride. The profile is slightly larger than the Pirelli. Another bonus is the Michelins will bottom out less often. I had to repair my wheels once already and they can use another visit to the shop again but I'm living with the few minor scuffs on the sides. No big deal, the guy just polishes them up for a hundred bucks or so.
