Re: Espace 2007 tyre wear
I've just taken my Yokohama Advan Sport tyres off the rear (55 plate 2.2dci) after 22k and have approx. 2.5mm tread left. All I have done is keep the tyres inflated to 2.4bar. Seems high but I've found it wears the tyre pretty flat. Honestly the outside edge is probably slight more worn but not drastically.
I find I have more of a problem on the fronts, my fronts after the same time have worn the very outside tread smooth but have 2 to 3 mm tread in middle and inside.
I have been told in the past the only part of the tread that needs to be above the 2mm limit is the middle 80% of the tyre. Which is also why your tread wear indicators are normally only 3 within the 80% area. I always get nervous when I start seeing smoothness on the very outside edge though, I'm lucky enough to have a second set of wheels fitted with virtually new winter tyres, so they are now on while I replace the others.
