    CT tyre recommendations

    the CT goes up/down the mountain quickly once a day plus freeway.

    what are the best tyres for wear and decent handling?
    since my wife generally drives it during the week, i value wear more than handling, and need wet capability. have the 19" wheel. occaisonal dirt roads.

    my mech told me CT's eat tyres due to their weight and her chubby S600 certainly did from going up and down the mountain..

    tried searching but could not find a definitive thread- so if you guys are willing, thanks you

    Re: CT tyre recommendations

    Have you look into the Toyo Proxes S/T.
    Tearwear for Michelin 275/45R19 4X4 Diamaris is 220 and tearwear for Toyo 285/45R19 is 420.

    SUV World record 300km/h by Sportec used TOYO Proxes S/T.

    Re: CT tyre recommendations

    We have two Rennteam members that I know of, Jeffrey Behr and jdrive, who have used the Proxes and liked them. I don't have a strong opinion myself, other than that I have really liked the Continental Contacts that I have used. No failures off-road, no vibrations, good in wet weather and passable in the snow.

    there is not a standard for tire wear ratings and they vary greatly among manufacturers. they are "only" useful when comparing tires from the same manufacturer.

    if tire wear is important watt, see if you can get some rock tires made all four of our diamaris wore to the wear bars in 6k miles. even tire wear from outer to inner tire illustrated there was no alignment or tire pressure explaination for the ridiculous wear. the truck was very conservatively driven during 95%+ of those miles.

    Re: CT tyre recommendations

    do they make 285/35/22 for the Toyo? I want to give it a try, I am currently using the Diamaris

    Deetz,
    The answer is yes. Follow the link below:
    http://toyo.com/tires/tire_specsheet.cfm?id=6

    I haven't try this myself yet because my Cayenne S delivery date is June 18th and definitely I will get the TOYO Proxes.

    I did a lot of research about the Toyo and asked a lot of HK's SUV owner. Most of them recommended Toyo and Michelin Diamaris but wait until you see the Toyo tyres yourself, you'll fall in love. Check out the pics took by Sportec (Cayenne Turbo), they have Toyo Proxes S/T on it and they tested with 300km/h.

    PM me if you are interested, I have good source for good price.

    Re: CT tyre recommendations

    I currently run Michelin Diamaris on the 22", I have around 3k or more miles. I will need one more set in a few thousand more miles...

    Options are:
    Michelin Diamaris
    BFGoodrich
    Toyo
