N/S tyre wear

Hi.

Our 55 TD4 is scrubbing the outer 25% of the contact tread on the nearside rear wheel.

Have anyone had similar issues?

It's due in for a 24k service soon so not too sure whether to mention it then, but this could be chargable as tyres fall into waring parts.

It's certainly not a common problem.

I'd mention it for sure at the next service -- it's a sign that something's not right somewhere.

The obvious suspect IMHO is the rear wheel alignment -- not sure what would knock that out other than a servere kerbing. If it was mine I'd be tempted to get the four-wheel alignment checked before worrying about more exotic possible problems.

A locked VC or rear diff problems could also cause this but that's unlikely in a 55 car IMHO and I'd also expect it to affect both rear wheels rather than just one.

OK, I'll book it in for a four wheel alignment.

Thanks.

Had the vehicle in today for a new tyre, and a four wheel alignment.

The man in the centre said that he has had a couple in recently with excessive tyre wear on n/side.

All done now, so I'll see how it goes.

Regards.
