Hello!

I'm looking at buying new tires and feel a bit lost as to what the maximum tire size is I can fit on my rims. I have the "fat boy" rims that come standard on a V10...

What's the biggest I can fit?

Thanks!

I got 30.5 tires on 17s with steel suspension. No rubbing at all. Someone with air suspension would better be able to answer the question, VD. But, Im willing to bet you could sneak 32 tires on that bad ass V10.

I can confirm that 265/50/20 will fit a T2 Non air V6. No rubbing at all. I will try to get some pics up soon but much smoother ride than the 275/45/20.

Fitted Audi Q7 20 inch rims. Tire size is 285/50/20. I drive in auto suspension most of the time. It does not rub at all even in Sport suspension. The rims are plasti dip as you can see some areas are peeling off.

Like the colour/color! Is that a wrap and is that an identical car parked opposite?

You roof rails are on the wrong way round by the way. The rail with the longer, shallower slope is the rear rail!

And what's happened to the bottom of the driver's door?

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!]

I plasti dipped it but I'm thinking of wrapping it someday. The two other touaregs are for my friends. Thank you for the information, I never knew it was supposed to be on the way around. The bottom of the driver door will not stick back after it detached. I got the car like that.

Have you had any problems with rubbing? Just picked up a set of Atturo Tire Trail Blade A/T 265/70/17 (31.7") for my 2005 Treg.

HI... What brand of 265/60r18 have you fitted? I'm considering the Nitto Terra Grappler G2 on 8" ET53 wheels which I replaced my standard 20's with.
