Hi Andy, suggest you do some sums before comitting to purchasing.
If you want to stick to no more than the OEM tyre sizes you can go also with a 245/65-17 (750.2mm OD) or if you want to go a little bigger (15%) and still be legal everywhere in Australia under the 15% max increase tyre size increase rule you can do 255/65-17 (763.2mm).
You could go even bigger legally if your current model Touareg is classified as "MC" (4WD), I don't know if the classification has been changed from the T2's with low range as they are classified as MC's but don't know if the T3's, 8 speed without low range are still being classified as MC.
