Noticed yesterday that the rear tyres are wearing on the inside - around 0.8mm more wear than the rest of the tyre so not too drastic. They were rotated from the front at around 4mm tread. Tyres are about to be replaced and I'm most disappointed that I've only got 21000 miles or so from the set - I would have expected closer to 30000miles.

My first set of front tyres on our 4wd VW California (bought new) managed a mere 6700 miles before they needed replacing! Rear tyres on my old BMW 335d only managed about 8000. Uneven wear every time; really annoying.
I get ours laser aligned which helps but doesn’t solve it completely.

Well ours is in - we have a Swift SHVS which I thought had the same engine as ours (only the AllGrip version does - this is FWD) - I couldn't work out why it felt so much livelier than our Ignis; checked the specs and it has the 1.0 Boosterjet engine with a lot more torque and a fair bit more power. No I want that engine in our Ignis! On the downside, it's definitely more sluggish at low revs before the turbo kicks in. I do liken the linearity of the power delivery in non turbos. Better throttle response too.

Sounds like the shocks might get done - they're going to have a look and see. We pick it up tomorrow.

Smells me like camper settings change for the abnormal inside part wear of tyres when vehicle loaded or fully laden and make long trips. It depends how often of course..

It's critical to inspect and add more air pressure in tyres prior travelling loaded.

As this is tall and low-weight car and maybe the kind of suspension (soft for loadind..) and that the shocks have longer motion to play, it may affect the camper easily and have such results...

Well, looking for suspension impressions after summer holiday is off with our Ignis?
Well that dammed bounce in the back shaft got tired somehow our back passengers...
I'll have to visit a suspension garage to stay investigating what can be done....

Well I’ve just taken ours in and got a Honda Jazz for the day. I much prefer the Ignis...!

Do you have a pic of the beefier ones at all. I find mine doesn't like things like railway line crossings so I need to check what I have fitted.
