May seem like a given... but prior to outlaying $$$ on a set of 17" (ex-Porsche/Audi/VW) wheels and rubber.
Can anyone please confirm that these 'typical' second hand rims will fit OK on the current model (MY16) V6TDI with air suspension?
ie no changes to brakes sizing etc..? Appreciate your advice. Dub

VW Group 17" wheels will fit 16MY Touaregs, I have exactly that for my winter tyres - the clearance over the caliper is small so stones may get trapped and score the inside of the rims - more importantly, non VW Group 17" wheels may be different shaped and may foul so ensure a trial fitting front and rear before purchase.

Make sure the 17" rims are specified for a SUV - there will be 17" rims around designed for smaller VW Group cars which won't have the load rating necessary.

As above, VAG and Porker 4x4 17s are fine BUT don't get caught out buying a set off a 2.5 Tdi Touareg as they will not fit due to the PCD being 5x120 and not, as you require, 5x130
