Was browsing through some of the SEMA hot products and encountered this: http://www.sema.org/products/p...w=rim
Loos like the 18IN rims will fit and you can get that more aggressive thread for offroad and snow, etc...
well I'm not expert, so the info is as it is....
The Tyres for off-road offer by VW or Porsche are the Pirelli Scorpion A/T.....
One thing (big one) that you have to remember is the Speed limit for A/T or M/T tyres. http://www.es.pirelli.com/en_G...=2119 http://www.toyo.com/tires/index_frame.html
if you use these tyres you HAVE to reduced your speed on tarmac or they...blow. Besides, the breaking distance will be amazingly....long .....
Last year I bought a set of dedicated snow tires for my 4x4 pickup and a set of wheels. The pickup is a 2003 Dodge Dakota with 16" rims. On eBay I picked up a set of 15" rims that looked exactly like the 16" rims. The tires were very agressive Green Diamond retreads: http://www.high-tec-retreading.com/sizes.html. They didn't carry many 16" tires last year which is why I went 15".
Anyway, when I got the entire package together and went to put them on the car, I found out that the wheels didn't fit. In 2003 Dodge put bigger rotors on the front of the Dakota which was why they changed the wheel size.
So I sold the wheels and tires to a guy from MA on eBay who owned an earler model Durango. About a month later he called me and asked me if I would take the tires and wheels back. Seems his wife now refused to drive the car because the tires were so NOISY.
Moral of the story:
1) make sure what you buy will fit. (my lesson)
2) be sure you understand what effect an extremely agressive tire will have on your car.
