Question 17" Cayenne Rims on T3???

Hello ClubTouareg,

Can anyone confirm that these rims will work on my 2011 V6? I've heard 17"s won't clear the brakes on the T3.
Thank you!

17"s fit most Touaregs - I use them for winter tyres on my T4.

I have just fitted a set of 17" Sonora with 235/65R17 Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV and no problems whatsoever.
I seem to recall reading somewhere that it is only 4.2TDI that due to the larger brake size cannot use 17" rims. Not 100% sure though.

17s won't fit the V10 and the V8 Tdi.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Obviously check the offset of those rims, but I can confirm that 17s do indeed fit the T3. It's very close on the front calipers; the shop had to put balancing weights further out because they wouldn't clear, so be careful!

I run 17" VW OEM rims from 10 Touareg on our 2011 with 235/65/17 Nokian WR SUV 3 all weather tires, you will need to balance with thin weights to clear the calipers.
