Love it! Sport UTILITY vehicles are meant to get dirty.
I haven't noticed much difference with the Falken vs. the original Conti Sport Contacts. I've only been up to 170kph,fully loaded with bicycles on the back around a gentle bend. No noticeable difference in feel.How much of a difference in handling do you notice with the ATs v. the original AS tires?
Either way, it's an awesome setup and cool as ****! And it looks great too.Not at all. I monitor my fuel economy with a spreadsheet tracking data on every tank of gas, there has been no noticeable drop on fuel consumption. On the other hand, due to the increase in wheel size, the actual travel distance is under-represented on the tachometer, theoretically.
I had the coil-over suspension altered. Front struts were extended, with stock coils; rear shocks are extended with an adjustable spring perch on the rear. Also added new front sway bar links. Work was done by Greg @ PRG Products.Looks very cool, I love it.
A couple of questions
-have you altered the suspension or just running it at max height?
-I assume it is cocking wheels everywhere on uneven trails with no articulation?
-Do you find the traction control works well or get a bit if wheelspin ?
I do a lot off-road driving but have a dedicated vehicle for it so our Macan is for the blacktop only.
I am on springs...If I get to spec out my next one I would get air suspension.looks great. what did you do to change the suspension? I am not sure if you are on springs or air suspension.
Thank you. I haven't added any protection underneath. My next steps are to add the racks for the full size spare wheel, and some cool rally lights.Either way, it's an awesome setup and cool as ****! And it looks great too.
Did you add any protection underneath? And when are the winch and overland racks going on?

Thank you. I like yours too!I like mine lowered, but your macan is pretty cool, thanks for sharing!
I did not do the build myself. It was done by Greg at PRG Products, he is based in Auburn CA. The build involves some custom fabricated pieces. I am not sure if it is DIY-friendly. I think other experts will start coming up alternative solutions soon.With the release yesterday of the new 2023, 911 Dakar Rally edition; I can see this as a new trend for the Macan, just as it has happened with the Cayenne in the past.
I seen your stated your Macan has springs suspension. Would you care sharing what parts are needed to accomplish this lift along with wheels and tires specifications or putting a DIY together for any others who may want to follow your foot steps? This is a really interesting project. Congratulations.
I think it looks great, fun and athletic. Not saying it is the "best" way or the "right" way, however.I’ve been researching and trying to find overlander type parts for the Macan but unfortunately nobody makes them.
I could care less what anyone thinks IMO, a Macan with AT’s, a rear spare tire mount, and a roof tent would be sick.
