Such low profile tires for a truck - odd.

Well in Germany most of the road is paved

To be honest, I blinged them up with 17" rimz in the web configurator. They're usually for "light duty" use in construction support, city engineering and so on. No need for draggy mud tyres. If you needed American pickup type usage, you would go for the Amarok I guess.



Edit: Of course, that one is Austrian and not German

The VW Amarok is a rest-of-the-world compact pickup that competes against the likes of the global Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado, Toyota Hilux and others, yet until now, it hasnít set foot on North American shores.

They do have those on Toyotas, Nissans, and Mitubushis all over Asia when I visited. Most are on the slightly bigger commercial trucks, similar to our pick up with the 10' flat beds. I buy one if they made one with a crew cab
