New Wheels for Cayenne V6


Recommended Posts

HI,

I recently bought a v6 cayenne 05, and i want to upgrade my stock wheels. My question is this: Where can i purchase wheels, whats a good aftermarket brand and whats a good size for the rims? Good meaning it looks great, at the same time doesnt sacrifice comfort. Thanks in advance!

As you improve the looks of your wheels, you will no doubt go with bigger wheels. I think most people agree that once the wheels get over 18" in size, the ride quality is sacrificed a little bit.

In my opinion, the sacrafice isn't that great. I have the 20" Porsche Sport Techno wheels on my 2004 Cayenne, and they look great. I would choose them again.

As far as the style goes, that's up to you. I prefer to go with Porsche wheels, but there are many other good options. You may be able to find somebody on here who has changed the wheels on a Cayenne S or Cayenne Turbo and would be willing to sell you the old ones.

Good luck.

Hey Sid,

I have a 2005 V6 that came with 17" OEM's...after a year I could not stand it anymore...I had a little extra cash and my dealer just took 20" sport Techno's off another customers Cayenne they were upgrading. I was lucky to get a little off the price...WOW what a visual difference. As far as ride, yes its slightly stiffer. I was also worried about weight, but the brakes seem to feel better and acceleration does not seem to be any different. Overall I am very pleased.

PS- I did ALOT of on-line research and ended up feeling better about staying with OEM. Maybe it's being overly cautious, but my family rides/drives the pepper...many wheels may be made by the same manufacturer and distributed under different names, but mine say "Porsche"... Good enough for me.

Good Luck
