Off-road Wheel/Tire Package Recommendations

This may have been asked countless time before but I am looking for recommendations for off-road wheel/tire package. By off-road I mean, beach days and light car camping. Nothing really overland-ish.

My Treg came with an aftermarket wheel/tire package from the dealer. 22 inch Niche INTAKE - M159 with some 'ironman' tires. They are okay for driving around town but would like to have a spare set to change out on weekend trips to the beach or car camping at state parks.

To add to Markís comment. Although, Iíve never run them on my truck I feel confident in saying the KO2s are the best A/T tire on the market.

With that said, Wayne, I do run Toyo Open Country A/T2s. And, I would say theyíre a solid #2.

There is a thread here somewhere, Wayne, that shows max tire size for your model. There is a ton of info on the topic along with the sizes. Iím sure it will greatly help you arrive at precisely the set of rolling stock you desire.

You can always try the General grabber AT(x). I personally run AT2 in my Touareg.

I was just checking out the General A/Tx. It looks like they donít make a size that would fit a Touareg. But, I think the General X3 might work.

I recently purchased Falken Wildpeak AT3's (265/60r1 and so far so good. Price on these are great (I paid around $160 per tire) and the reviews are great too. BFG KO2's would've been awesome but the price was way to high than I wanted to spend. I would've love to buy new wheels but nothing caught my eye during my searches.

Good luck and let us know which combo you end up with.
