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.

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.
