The Cayenne is without a doubt the best performing 'SUV' out there. I put 20" technos with 275 Michelins on mine for non-winter driving (which are specifically designed for this vehicle's suspension and rated at 186 mph) and the Cayenne is transformed to near 911 handling - what a difference, not that the 18" 255's are bad. These tires are a must have for the true performance seeker with $5,000 to spend on great fun. It is hard to get my PSM to kick on, wet or dry, with these on! Aggressive males and females will enjoy the most it has to offer. Why bother otherwise?
It drives as smooth as silk at 120+ mph and handles curves as if on rails with 20" technos.
It is a little bit cramped up front (I am 6' 4") with the back seats down completely.
