AMFastB7S4,

Of the two, I prefer the Pikes Peak.

If you want to go with gunmetal, what about these:

Dead touareg thread is usually dead.

The OZ canyon is the only wheel that tirerack has that I like, but I would go pikes peak over them. I am in the same boat as you, can't decide what wheels to put on the treg.

I am up in Exton so :wave:

:wave: I think I've seen your name over in the WC thread before. Don't think I've seen your Treg around, though. I really don't see any around. I love that about them. You see plenty of X5s, MDXs, etc, but never any new Tregs.

Yeah, the Pikes Peak are nice but are pricey. I like those BBSs above but those are really pricey. The OZs fit the bill in that they are not ghetto chrome "truck" wheels which is what you mostly find. I like the gunmetal since they would look good with the gray. Right now I'm leaning towards the OZs.

Have you looked at Victor Equipment wheels? Out of those two, I like the OZ's but only because of the color. Wouldn't Zehn's be nice if they came in gunmetal? Discount Tire carries them for a pretty decent price.

I've never heard of that brand. Is it good quality? I'm assuming so because they are made for Porsche. When I look them up on Discount Tire, it says they don't fit the Treg, but I'm assuming that's because they are made for Porsche specifications.

Here is mine with 22'' VE Zehns. I had mine custom powder coated. I am also on H&R sport springs.

Whoa! Looks great! After looking at the VE website and the pics, I was thinking that wheels might not look good without a drop and your pics just confirmed that. The Treg is actually my wife's car so I have to decide if it's really worth dropping money on stuff she won't even care about.

My wife drives this car everyday. She was a little questionable when I told her I was going to lower it and run the 22's. Now that it is done she loves it. The ride is a bit stiffer than stock obviously, but not harsh. We have crappy roads in Colorado and with this setup she has not complained once.

Here is a few pics before it was lowered.

It actually looks okay not lowered. Do you know the specs of the wheel? What's the width/offset? Are you running summer tires or all seasons? What about TPMS? I wasn't really considering 22s due to the additional cost of the wheels and tires, but that looks really good. I was just planning on running all seasons because I really don't feel like swapping wheels for the winter. I guess living in Colorado that you probably have dedicated wheels/tires for the winter.

They are 22x10 et50 on all 4 wheels. I am running 285/35/22 all season Rodian HP tires. They are not the best but no the worst. I still have my stock wheels and tires, I only run them when things get nasty. I ran the 22's once up snow mobiling and then did fine, the stocks would have been better of course.

Get the Pikes Peak

Don't have pics, but the dealer had a new set of 20" Pikes Peak they pulled off an Executive they put 22" aftermarket wheels on. Got a heck of a deal on them and sold the 18" wheels and tires that came on my 2012 TDI sport that are like yours so it was a wash costwise.

I love the look and believe or not I think it actually rides better. Handling better of course due to the wider rim. Mileage about a mile or two worse per gallon, but no big deal.

If you need to see pics just look at a new brochure or check VW's website. Myself I love the larger factory rim, but definitely agree with the other suggestions for aftermarket rims. I don't like the OZ rims pictured myself since they have been around a while. I do like the aftermarket Cayenne rims some put on their new 2012 Touaregs though.

OTAMYWAY your treg looks great- the drop is just right.:beer::beer:

Fastb7, I have a black one with Thule bars, and I hardly see any in our area:thumbup:
I had a mkv low on snowflakes before this. Maybe I'll see you around :beer:

You guys have me thinking that 22's will need a drop to look best, or 20's and stay stock height. Good luck finding the right set.

If the fit the Cayenne they should fit the Touareg. Same vehicle essentially. The wheels from Cayennes always fit Touaregs before. I can't imagine it would be any different now either with the new models.

Thanks for the input and comments, guys. :thumbup:

I'll keep my eye out for you. You won't see me on the Treg, though. You'll see me in a black CC, mild drop, tint. The wife drives the Treg. Hopefully you'll spot her with some new wheels in a few months.

You're right about the 22s. Think I'm going to stick with 20s and not worry about a drop. I've seen pics of Treg 2s with those OZ 20s and they look good. So right now it's between the OZs or the VEs.
