2011 Touareg Executive
Just purchased 2011 Touareg Exec. TDI. Love it! Just noticed that it has 18" tires/wheel and the door placard shows it should be 275/45R20XL. Does anyone know why previous owner would change size and do you suggest going back to original as stated on placard? Thanks
Also, this vehicle produces an extreme amount of brake dust. Suggestions on best brake pads and rotors to go with? Thanks,

Better ride, cheaper tires. And mine gives off dust. But it stops better with these pads.
