Hi guys, I've read a few old posts on here about changing wheels on an R50 V10, but i haven't seen and definate answers.
I'd like to take the 21's off to do a small off road trip, and wondering if 18 inch rims will clear the large R50 calipers.
Thanks in advance.

18 is the lowest I believe -same as the v10.

V8 Tdi and W12 are 18 inches minimum too I think.

For anyone reading thus thread somewhere in the world where the R5 was also available note that the R5 wheels are 5x120 PCD and all other Touaregs since model launch are 5x130 PCD.

I would think that the R50 would not accept 18" front rims as the Calipers are to big i would think 19" would be smallest you could have.
That is why the R50 didnt come with an 18" spacesaver spare like the std V10 did it wouldn't fit.
The R50 only came with tyre sealant.
