Has anyone noticed the dwindling options for the 295-30-18 Rear Tire on our Turbos (and GT3s)? It is getting almost ridiculous that the choice is now PS2, Bridgestone, or P Zero. Hankook made the Ventus V12 Evo in that size then discontinued it with the Evo2. I found some Falken FK453s (which are great tires) but hear they are discontinuing that size. Pilot SuperSport: Nope. Sumitomo Makes the HTR ZIII in our size but is it any good How about the Kumho Ecsta SPT? Not many options, I am interested in others' experiences since it seems ridiculous to hang $2K worth of tires when you can get similar performance for half the price...
I had an unfortunate wintertime run-in with an enormous pothole at (US) interstate highway speeds (2000 Boxster). I dented the left rear rim pretty good and also blew the tire as a result. As soon as this happened, my Coolant Temp light started flashing at a slow speed. I've seen elsewhere the descriptions for the slow flash (i.e low coolant, coolant temp too high, or maybe engine compartment temp too high?). I'm somewhat new to this car (<9 mo. owner), so I'm not sure what I should check next. My coolant level is topped up just like usual. (I had the reservoir changed last fall). I see no leaks. The temp gauge is steady at 180° or so just like normal. Any ideas what I might have damaged when this happened? Is it happening on the left side a clue? I have a Durametric which I will connect when it warms up in a few days. Just curious what I might be up against. Thanks in advance.
Planning a small overhaul of my 996 C2 Mk1 suspension/wheel/tires
Wheels: OEM Sport Design 2 (bbs 2pc- wheels)(mk1 gt3 wheels)
Tires: Sumitomo HTR Z III (225/40/18- 285/30/18)
Suspension: H&R Street Performance Coilovers + H&R Sway Bars (front and rear)
Wheels: OZ Ultraleggera
Tire: Hankook Ventus V12
Any thoughts on the new set-up, issues i may have? experiences with the coilovers,wheels, tires?
With the increased wheel width I think the wheels will be flush with the fenders but if not are spacers even an option?- does anyone have this set up? need to roll fenders? pics?
thanks for your feedback
Time to replace my OEM summer tires (2007 C4S, got 32,300 miles out of them)--any recs for what to replace with?
I'm trying to choose between Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 or Super Sport. The Super Sports have better ratings on tirerack but the PS2s are OEM. The Super sports are about $500 less than the PS2s for all four tires.
They are both Y rated with similar load capacity.
Anyone try the super sports? I've never been to the track but wouldn't rule this out in the future

First post on the board. I bought an '09 Turbo S Cayenne in the summer and now that winter is approaching I'm looking to move to some all season tires (we have pretty variable winters here in KC, so winter tires are a bit of an over kill).
There are no options for the factory 21's and I'd like to move to the OEM 19's but Porsche service is telling me that they won't fit over the calipers. Is that true and do I need to look at the OEM 20's or will the 19's fit?
Thanks for your help!
