275/70R17s on my '06 Cayenne



Not much love for off road builds in the Porsche forums, but I managed to fit Nitto Ridge Grappler 275/70R17s on my '06 Cayenne with Alex Gee's lift/leveling kit.

Also using a hubcentric 25mm adapter/spacer to give me more wheel options.

There was some minimal rubbing when they were first mounted, but that was easily rectified with a little fender trimming.

Nice one! Like those wheels.

How have you mounted the spare on the rear? Pix required!

It's the Wilco Off-road Hitchgate Solo.

Hitch mounted spare carrier that swings away for liftgate access. Also adds a secondary hitch so you don't lose your towing capabilities. Secondary hitch is rated for 7,000#.

You definitely don't want to go cheap on something that influences the entire geometry/balance of your ride.

I HIGHLY recommend Motorsport Tech. They make hubs/adapters to YOUR specifications. I ordered mine to be both hubcentric to the OEM Porsche hub, as well as wheel-centric to the center diameter of my aftermarket wheels. I provided all the specifications and about 2 weeks later, 4 gorgeously crafted hub adapters showed up on my doorstep. They were a perfect fit.

Haha. I bought that kit. So, I have the parts to mount the Rotopax cans. Just waiting on the cans themselves to come in.

I'll post additional pictures when they do. I'm going with a 3 gallon gas can and 2 gallon water can.

We also like the Wilco Hitchgate with mounts for two Scepter cans on the back. Maxtrax fit nicely behind the spare. Having the spare out back makes hanging a Trash-a-roo easy. We have full skid plates all the way back covering important bits. Rock sliders just in case. The roll bar has a mount to store the winch internally, can be mounted in front or back as needed. Winch also pins the ARB fridge against the side. Group 31 battery sits on the opposite side of the winch with the inverter. Pushing the rear seats forward makes room behind for a 90 watt solar array. ARB 8x8 room extends out one side and a 6x6 for cooking & relaxing on the other. The track car also fits under the 6x6. Full Xpell wrap will cost less to replace than repaint after all the scratches from doing road rally and off-roading. If y'all have access to PCAs Panorama there is an 11 page article on our TDI in the December 2016 issue.
