Re: Espace 2007 tyre wear

Just returned from Renault garage, after a 3 hr inspection, the outcome of which is that the rear axle and suspension are all fine. I was informed that the espace commonly has this type of rear tyre wear and is worse on the near side wheel, 'it's the way the car is set up'. Fortunately for me the cost of the inspection was generously picked up by Renault Uk, even though the car is out of warrantee. I will wait for the garage to send the report to renault uk and plan to follow up. As suggested by other members I will increase the rear tyre pressures and see how this effects the wear, and possibly refit the tyres from near to off-side to extend their life.
