    Re: Touareg tyres

    Load rating for the Grabber AT-3's is 116-119 so fine for the big Treg.

    Re: Touareg tyres

    We have very new 265-60/18 Grabber AT-3's on a 2005 V10 and they don't rub on the intercooler vents on the inside of the wheel arches. Should be slightly more fender space in a naturally aspirated...

    Re: What have you done to your Volkswagen today?

    Where did you get your winch mounting? Around 2007 when we got our 05 V10, 4x4 Megaworld made me a roof rack and , at that time , offered a winch mounting but I never took them up on it.
