For my use the Michelin lattitude cross XL 235 60 R18 is better
☆the only tire that has validated my assurrance☆

After having a flat tire I noticed how much space the spare tire used. I also noticed that the factory jack would not work out well off road .

I normally carry my jumper cables, tire repair kit flares, triangles, recovery gear, tools etc in a aluminum box 22.83" x 15.12" x 9.45"

The solution was simple. I flipped the spare tire over , bought a shorter bolt to secure the wheel and everything that was in the box is now under rear deck.

Now I have that much more room for when I go camping.

MetalDog, thanks for posting the picture! For an update on our Cayenne 'Otis' - We have since completed the wrap as protection for going off-road, added an interior roll bar with points to secure a winch. The winch pins the ARB frig to the side of the tailgate, National Luna case with a group 31 battery with 90 watt solar panel, rock sliders, rear tire holder with two 5 gallon water can holders. As this is a diesel water limits us more than fuel - best we did on a tank was 765 miles.
We have been active off-road with NWOL and take trips on our own like the southern half of the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR). Have enjoyed many TSD road rally events. Did the ALCAN 5000 last winter which took us north of the Arctic circle - 'Otis' is in the video for a very short while at the 4:08 point. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOGrwgW3aKA DSC_9765b_small.jpeg

I hate to beat a dead horse. I know most say they do not want to lift these because it ruins other drivabilities. Ive searched and cannot find any good answers to my question. I read all about doing a spring spacer lift on these with the steel suspension. but a few posts back show a teflon shim on top of the suspension. would it be possible to do that shim sort of lift while retaining air ride? Ive read that much more than 2 in of lift messes up the driveshaft. But couldnt you potentially do the teflon shim lift with retaining airride, make a spacer for the carrier bearing on the driveshaft and be good to run 33in tires with a 5in lift or so? Just speculating about it. seems all the lift info is for steel springs.

edit: I dont own one of these. Ive been looking and have absolutly loved every one ive driven or ridden in. Always thought they were ugly. But might be my next vehicle.

I'm sure it can be done. Probably just as you say.

I love lifted vehicles and was the first to put the bigger tires on the CTT. But, its honestly soooooooooo damn good at the other things it really takes away from the point of a Cayenne to destroy its insane versatility.

I do agree with that statement. Just speculating about it. seems nobody has tried to make a bigger lift(than the spacer lift) but alot of people want one.
