looking for alternative tires for 955 cayenne turbo s

Recommended Posts

 

 

For my 06 cayenne turbo s, the p-recommended was so far the bridgestone  dueller hp sport 275 40 r20 106y .

 

However, it is discontinued by bridgestone , and it becomes increasingly difficult to find new old stock. 

 

if sb. here could share some experience with alternative tires  for this car , this would be very helpful. 

thanks , 

ilja

You say "P" recommended? Porsche has never recommended a Bridgstone tire that I know of?  With that said I am one that doesn't believe you need a Porsche recommended tire (N0, N1, etc..)  Being in Cali, you probably have a "Americas Tire", check their website and search by size, make sure you check the box for a "XL" rated tire as that is what you need, and go with a speed rating of "V', "W", or "Y".

thanks for all recommendations ! The complete list with approved tires as well as knowing  there are cheap alternatives too is very helpful.

 

I will likely avoid the khumo’s ( i had the chance to test such when i got those along with a set of spare rims for my 911 , and found traction aweful ...). The p-zero’s seem a good alternative to me now.  

Bridgestones were installed on my CTTS prior i got it (the first owner had all work done at p-dealer, and i assumed they installed approved tire- and which the tsb seems to confirm). The main reason i wanted to stick to bridgestones is due to good traction,  very good wear behavior and good price ( ~250 @tirerack before they stopped selling them in sept) ).   

 

however, thanks once more to all for your input!

Personally I prefer the Conti SportContacts DWS for everyday all year-round use
