Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

I'm looking for a set of used or new porsche cayenne wheels for winter tires. Anyone knows where I could get it for a good price?

Thanks

Ian :D :)

I picked up a set of 18" Turbo wheels by posting a "wanted to buy--18" Cayenne wheels" on Craigs list. I got a speedy reply with an offer to sell 4 wheels with center caps for $250. I think there are a lot of wheels like this taking up room in garages from people who upgraded to larger diameter wheels. I found that the 18's work perfect with Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow tires. Also the 18" winter tires are considerably cheaper than the bigger sizes.

Hi, I have a new Cayenne (August 2010) and a set of old Cayenne 19 inch alloys, which I would like to fit for Summer running I have heard conflicting views, but wondered if anyone knew the true situation? If I do just try fitting the 19 inch wheels, what are the dangers if they are not suitable? Many Thanks, WhiskeyCorner.

Whiskey, I assume that you have a new 2011, not a leftover 2010, correct?

I have no personal experience with such fitment (pre-2010 wheels on a 2011MY), but I've been researching wheel fitment for my 2008 Turbo and have stumbled upon many opinions regarding the new generation of Cayennes (even some citing Porsche TCBs), all of which conclude that you MUST stick with MY2010 wheels.

They cite weight, balance among the primary reasons, but there may be some fitment issues as well. I don't think it's an attempt to keep Porsche's revenue stream going by selling more spares. Maybe the hub is a different size.

If it were me in your shoes, I would not want to be the first test-monkey shot into space in the event it goes horribly wrong - IMHO.

Ask you dealer to print out a relevant TSB if you can't fine on heer or on the web.

How do you like the new Cayenne though?

Do Cayennes really need winter tires?

Summer tires can render even the most capable 4x4 useless in cold temperatures, snow, and ice. I'd rather drive a 2wd honda civic with 4 snow tires than a Cayenne with summer tires. Trust me, I speak from experience. The toughest choice you'll face is if you live in a place where you don't get much snow. Whereas if you live in snow country, the choice is obvious.

I have a set of 18s that would be perfect for winter wheels. I'll let them go real cheap too. PM with your email if you want some pictures.

Hidden objects under the snow and road chemicals can destroy a nice set of large, expensive summer wheels.

Quick picture of my 22" summers. You can see how the rim could easily rub up agianst a curb line hiding in snow.

My 18" turbo wheels for winter. MUCH larger sidewall for deep snow interactions.

+1 Jagman1!

I had a set of Dunlop Sportmax summers on mine, and when we got hit with 12"+ of snow (Seattle), I got stuck 3-4 times... they literally build up an icy version of wheel chocks around the tires. It was pretty embarassing... :)

I switched over to all-seasons, and they handle much better.

I'm in the market for some 18" winter rims myself. I saw Streetcrawler's winter set (that he posted last year) and I'm in love. I've scoured ebay and craigslist and I'm really not coming up with much. I've even checked in with Wheel Enhancement and they have a couple choices I'm not too keen on. Since I have a 2008 CTT, I would like a set of 18" OEM. I assume these will fit? anyone have a great set they want to get rid of? I live in the SF bay area.

yeah, not what I'm looking for though. The black turbo 18" wheels that Streetcrawler posted are just what I'm looking for.

You can easily have a set of OEM Cayenne wheels painted or powdercoated black.

I bought a set of Cayenne S 18" wheels from my dealer that were removed from a new Cayenne because the owner wanted a larger wheel. I got the set in "as new" condition for $500. At the time, my dealer had several sets available. I'd check with your local dealer's parts department to see if they have any "take offs" for sale.

Like Cole, I run 18" in the winter because the sidewall is so much larger than my OEM 20" Sport Technos.

Good luck.

Streetcrawler's photo with the 18" turbo wheels in black looks so awesome! nice!

doesn't powdercoating compromise the rim? somehow I've read that somewhere but maybe I misread it.....

Powdercoating can compromise the strength of the alloy if it's not done properly. Make sure you choose a shop that knows what they are doing and has worked with wheels before. I've read lots of threads about broken wheels that were powdercoated by somebody who didn't know what they were doing.
