Re: Found more agressive offroad tires (Goosey)

Hi,
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.

if you use these tyres you HAVE to reduced your speed on tarmac or they...blow. Besides, the breaking distance will be amazingly....long .....

cheers

Re: Found more agressive offroad tires (Goosey)

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.
