Renault Scenic 04 rear NS tyre wear - jlo
Hi All,

Wonder if I could get some advice on my wife's car? She drives a Renault Scenic (New shape) 04 plate 1.6 petrol with around 22000K.

Found that her back nearside tyre is worn on the outside of the tyre. I checked the pressures a while ago and notice that was down to around 20psi so pumped it up. A few months on though it seems to be getting worse.

Do you think its worn bad because:

1)I had the pressures were to low (I would have thought though it would have worn both sides of the tyre and not the middle if this was the case, not just one side??

Can tracking go out on the back of a car??

Could it be a suspension fault?

The car is still under 3 year warranty


What would your advice be?

Many Thanks

Jlo

I should have added that the off side tyre is wearing prefectly.

In fact I have just done a google site and there are several renualt and parkers forum with info about back tyres wearing out quickly. Me think I need to book it in for an tracking check!

The main rear axle/suspension bushes are common failure.

Not heard of this on Scenics. Lagunas yes. Car has only done 22K.
