    I will be shopping for tires soon, The recent rains have made the roads ( even the N17) rough and pot holed.
    Getting a busted tyre on these roads is a high risk to personal safety.
    will be looking to change to a AT from an HT OEM size which is 275/45/20- currently there are general grabbers and cooper LTZ zeon available in this size.

    However look how nice BFG look on a treg. I see they come in 275/55/20 - might get a bit of rub in sport suspension mode with this size.

    what do you think ?

    Thats a big change, I don't know for sure but almost don't think they would fit. Almost 7.3% bigger which comes to 2.2in in diameter, I am all for bigger tires but that might be too much, maybe look at something narrower?

    I replaced my starter motor in 2019 and it sorted out the starting problem and going through batteries on a regular interval.

    I bought it from Gold wagon.

    Re: V6 TDI battling to start in the morning

    Well the good news is that my touareg has had the new Bosch starter fitted and it starts in a flash, no more cranking.

    The best R3830 plus labour R3030 including vat I have spent.

    I will attach some photos and if you look at the old starter motor you will see it is a Bosch and also made in Hungary like the new one.

    The person that fitted it pointed out the braided cable from the solenoid was touching the casing of the motor. I don't know if this has any significates to the starting problem. See Photo.

    Yes, you guys that said change the starter motor, you are spot on. I actually can't wait to show people I know how my car starts after years of cranking.

    Cheers

    Also think it's going to scrape a bit. 5% seems to be the limit, although my reference point is the previous generation Tregs. Regarding the BFG tyres, I run them on mine, they are very pothole resistant and tough, but they are very heavy tyres and add considerably to fuel consumption. Also they are not good high speed tyres and probably will not enjoy the V8's torque planted onto them on asphalt that much. They are truly a bit more off-road biased and the V8 is a more road biased machine.

    Good advice thanks, the best available for OEM size and rated for speed and are a LT
    are cooper zeon Ltz. Looks like choosing will be easy as that- or maybe grabbers from GT

    Maybe you can convince one of your local tire shops to fit and do a test to see if the will rub? Nothing beats actually checking the fit and feel on a car.

    With all the Difflock vs TC conversations going on I was wandering about the System on the T1 treg.

    1) Does deactivating the ESP also deactivates the Traction Control? (I will certainly think so) - I normally deactivate the ESP for Sand driving and keep it on for rock crawling and cross axles situations.

    2) When in low range with the center diff and rear diff locked manually. - Is the traction control still active on the front axle?

    Does the Good Year Wrangler not make any compatible sizes?

    Very good tyres, low noise, good fuel economy, nice looking and very capable off road.

    Hi,

    Is anyone here running the current (new) Treg?...specifically the new Executive model with all the fancy (crazy) electronics.

    How do ya'll find it? Anything to be concerned about? In hindsight, would you still purchase it?

    I'm considering swapping my Amarok Extreme for one of those. Any and all opinions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    nope, only grabber and cooper zeon ltz for all terrain with 275/45/20. No availability or ETA.

    So i went with pirelli scorpion verde all season @ R 3300 per tire today

    sensible option as I donít do heavy off roading only mud, sand, dirt and tar.

    very quite tire and recommended on by a few touareg drivers over seas.

    my current achillies dessert hawk HT were starting to disform and bulge on the thread which created a steering vibration. This after 45k km.

    Traction control always works on the treg. ESP on means the car will cut power and use traction control. ESP off means car won't cut power but will utilise traction control.

    If you really want TC off, pull the abs fuse or unplug an abs sensor and cable tie it away. Once done, revert your actions, restart and drive a few hundred meters to reset.

    Hi Chris,
    The Disco will remain the family/travel vehicle and we are getting something slightly smaller for town driving.

    I have been driving a Treg for 10 years (two different ones). The latest is a 2016 model. I have always had 255x55 tyres on it. Never any problem with touching the body even when you drop the air suspension to Sport mode.
    The 2016 has an 18 in rim. I have had various brands but in my view the Grabber AT3s are the best. Very quiet on the tar and plenty of grip off road.
    In January 2020 I needed new tires and there were no 255x55 available in the country with General Tire no even giving a delivery date. Best tyre convinced me that 255x60R18 Grabber AT3's would not touch the bodywork so I fitted them. No problem at all.

    Unfortunately I have sold the Treg a week ago. I now have a full size spare with a newish tyre on it. (255x60) which I will be marketing shortly.
