Rear Tyre wear
#1
Hi, I have tyre wear on the outside of the rear tyre's om my 2019 Berlingo 1.5 HDI, is there tracking adjustment on the rear? 
In general the tyre wear is quite disappointing with 3-4mm left at 12000 miles I would have expected better from Michelin's. 

Thanks,
Ronnie.

It's not adjustable I believe, and is a known issue caused by the rear geometry. There may be fixes but they involve shimming components of the rear sub frame. It's been discussed many times here. No adjustment is available though as standard.

Could be due to running lightly loaded as the camber is set to deflect to straight when carrying a load, wears on the outsides when not loaded etc. Can't remember the exact reason. Lots have it though. It's not the Michelins - they wear all tyres out on the rear at the edges.

Yeah I've had my rear ones on for a year but then, have only covered 3k miles in the year as I work 5 miles from home, plus have spent a lot of time working from home during the lockdowns etc (50% at least) but I see no wear on them at all.

We did have a big thread on here that Mark Lightfoot responded to (PSA Independent specialist) who said it was a known issue and he has "fixed" the problem in the past but that there is no actual adjustment to be had. I think he shims the subframe mounts or something.

I have this on my 2019 1.2cc just on the nearside rear. 15k done and tyre is now illegal, wear only on the outside edge. My local dealer said he searched the Citroen database for Technical Bulletins on this model and there were none, so he concludes there is no known issue!
I know better as there have been reports of this going back to at least 2011. I have reported it to Citroen directly now and await their reply...

I turned the tyres on the wheels to get a bit more out of them but without doing this they wouldn't have lasted 15000 miles.

It’s a known issue and I have found the factory fitted Michelin’s while being excellent tyres for grip do suffer more than other brands (uniroyal and Avon) for outside wear on a Berlingo

Both uniroyal and Avon gave considerably more mileage (33k and 29k) despite eventually suffering from the same outside tyre wear compared with the factory fit Michelin’s (18k).

Hi Ronnie - Did you find any fix for this? I have the exact same issue with my own 19 van and Citroen dealers do not want to know.

Had my tyres checked this week

1.2 Rifter XL 7 seater with 18,000 miles on factory Michelins

Fronts - average 4.5mm
Rears - average 5.5mm

Still plenty of life left in them

I've kept checking my K9's rear tyres to see if they were under-inflated, and I've also been wondering if a pothole had knocked out the alignment, so it's useful to know that this uneven wear is a known issue.  Have done 21,000 miles and the Michelin on the nearside rear looks OK in the middle but has really worn down on the outside edge. The van is usually moderately loaded.  Might try Hankooks as a replacement and see if they fare better.
