Re: Espace 2007 tyre wear

I have owned a Grand espace 2.0dci from new april 2007, completed 51k and had to change all tyres 3 times now. The rear NS wearing very quickly on the outside after probably 8k, middle of tyre 50% and inner edge hardly any wear. I have tried replacing the Michellins with Goodyear F1 and other but little difference. Tracking alignment has not highlighted any problems with rear. Front tyres have also worn on edges with a stepped pattern. Trusted tyre shop suggested this could be due to a lot of short runs and turning into a drive. Friend with same version and having owned a number of these has suggested running fronts at 2.7bar and rear on 2.4 bar. Very expensive car for tyres if using Michellins.
