Selling 4 - 245/65/R17 Nokia WRG3 All-Season Tires. Speed Rating 111H.
Very good for winter driving.
These are used tires, but they are in good shape with approximately 7/32 tread left on them. Even wear.
They are some of the best summer/winter tires you can buy.

All 4 for $250 (firm). Shipping extra.

Located in Denver, Colorado area.

Thanks noobytoogy, I priced them to sell (need to clear them out of the barn).


Forgot to mention in my post, that these will of course fit a Touareg (they are from our 2009 TDI). These 17" WRG3's are great in the snow and for all around driving.


A while back I bought some 17" Canyon wheels real cheap on Craigslist (17" tires are generally much cheaper than the 19" that were stock on my 2009). I quickly identified that the 17's provided better mileage also, and just stuck with that size (big wheels are not that important to me JMO).


Just as an FYI for those interested, If you are able to find a set of 17" wheels, they will fit T1's and T2's (V10's being the exception). Great for winter setup.

QPower1, while 235 may be the standard size specified, there is a thing known as optional sizes, and the 245 had worked fine on our Touareg for several years when we still had it. "Wrong", size is a little mis-leading. Moot anyway, these are no longer available. I have a new Jeep TrailHawk with this size tire, so I am keeping them. Great Tires, along with the Hakka R2's (which I have for snows on all my vehicles).

Not sure why you’d opt to buy the wrong size that isn’t the correct fit according to the manufacturer... so simple to buy the right size. As an auto parts professional for 35 years, I don’t see any upside to doing so, especially when the correct 235-65/17 size is so readily available in this tire. Promoting deviations from appropriate sizes does have downside, as variations in size may cause clearance problems, but will change the speedometer and odometer readings. Using the correct size is the only way to go. And to be clear, 235-65/17 is the optional size as 255-60/17 is the default standard. As this tire is only available in the optional size, that becomes the only choice to make.

Ridiculous... Playing with tire size is done all the time as you well know. These were bought at Discount Tire, and I assure you that at least at the store I deal with, they would not put a tire size on that was not going to work for fear of a legal action if something were to happen. You saw the spec differences, not that big of change (the things that really matter like load range, speed and clearance are just fine). Also as stated, that size worked fine for me for years.

You have your opinions with you spec for tires QP (being a professional and all) and I have mine (which have also worked just fine). Yes we all know who you are QP. Maybe you should stick to brakes (oh yes, you have your opinions on that subject too, which is fine)... But flaming someone else's post with mis-leading information is kinda bush don't you think? Not that it matters anymore.

Actually, you’re pushing the wrong idea here... because when you publish this inaccuracy you give credence to the idea that it’s OK to do this, but no honorable Tire shop would do this. It’s the one’s that Don’t care that will let you do it as you want. And your suggestion that it’s OK to mount these on standard fitment wheels may go unquestioned by many herein who just don’t know better or discriminate convention. You want these on your vehicle... your business. But don’t promote this as globally acceptable, because it isn’t. Will the car roll down the road? Sure. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do for the average owner, for reasons already stated.

QP, there you go again with the mis-leading information. The add does not say anything about standard fitment, the add is not promoting anything but a good deal on tires that did come off of and work just fine on a Touareg.

I don't have time to waste on your obsession about absolute spec tires anymore, but since it means soooo much to you that you would dig up a 9 month old dead classified add too flame it, here are 167 more threads with folks on just this Forum you can go out and save from their bad 245/65/17 tires and keep the world safe from promoting non-standard tire sizes. :wave:
