I just bought a set of the Dunlop Grandtrek WT M2
235x60 18" and they are "N 0" rated now.
You have to get the WT M2 tire though to get the rated N 0 in an XL (extra load tire).
I really like my set, yes a little softer riding then the summer tires but should be great in the winter since they are studless winter ice and snow tire technology.
regards to all

This is common for early models. The alignment should have been done by the dealer at > 400 miles.
Many have had 2 fronts replaced free (including me)+ alignment/road force wheel balancing to correct it going forward.
Dig yr heals in. Refer them to this and my boards(rennlist)if you have a problem.

If you are experiencing this problem in your Cayenne, of which Porsche is very well aware, there are postings on a forum unique to the VW Toureg that indicates VW has released a firmware update to solve it.
I first reported the problem with my 01 C4 in May of 01 as I returned it to the factory for shipment to the US. To date Porsche has refused to address the issue even though the shops seem to be fully aware of it and the hazardous driving potential therefrom.
The Bellevue Barrier service manager and I just recently verified that the 04 996 models still have this problem.

of a cayenne that got into an accident...
it seems like it is a pretty sturdy car....the front all caved in, but passenger compartment unaffected....
last year there was another cayenne like this , but with the whole engine bay all parted out...but the passenger compartment was intact....
I think Porsche and VW did a great job on the super high strength passenger cage... and the crumple zones....
#1301 of 2038 Who At the Dealership Specs These Out?
Dec 14, 2004 (7:04 pm)
I am looking for a Cayenne V6 with some basic options (roof, tipronic, heated seats, colored crests, zeonons) and not much else. Just your basic go to work vehicle. I'd like to do it before 1 January. Some of the vehicles on dealers lots are mind boggling. One I was quoted on today was a V6 with an MSRP of 54K! They loaded that sucker with 10K of useless crap (e.g., "soft" look leather so it looks like you sleep in your car, a trailer hitch so you can drag a skid steer home from Nations Rent, $450 of roof rack, $650 or so of for an extra interior light or two, etc.).
When you mention the manual shift version, everyone justs sniffs that this isn't going to work well with a 6000 pound vehicle so "we aren't going to order any".
Who specs these out? An angry dealer CFO who doesn't want to see any MSRP for under 50K? A properly specc'ed V6 should sell rings around an X5 yet because you can't get them, Porche doesn't sell them.

I have owned two Cayennes. Both had tires replaced by Porsche for wear issues. My current Turbo has 19" wheels and the dealer discovered the tires have been slipping on the rims! I am on my third set of tires and hoping this finally does the trick as I am tired of driving the 100+ miles for each service visit.

I also had early wear issues on Continentals. Dealer tried to get approval from corporate to replace the tires free of charge as they had seen similar instances but they couldn't get approval. Apparently your Cayenne has to be manufactured prior to Sept 03 in order for tires to be covered.

I have a Cay Turbo 04. Just in the last few days, it's been alarming on its own when locked. I had the car since July 03. Has anyone else experience this problem?
