DS7 Tyre Wear

Post by TheBadger »

Just an observation from me... my DS7 is now just over 2 years old and I had an advisory on my last service that the tread on my rear tyres was close to minimum requirements. I've just replaced them having done around 21,000 miles. There was, by contrast, still plenty of meat on the fronts. I was a little surprised at that, as all of my previous DS's - also front wheel drive - ate front tyres long before the rears.

I'm curious if anyone else has noticed the same?

For info, I decided to change the Goodyear tyres on the rear to "Pirelli Scorpion Verde Seal Inside" bought from Black Circles and fitted by a local garage. I plan to put them on the fronts when they need replacing too.

If the stories of hard bouncing around the back and 'skipping' are anything to go by I could understand why they are wearing out. Perhaps driving round with a few bags of cement in the boot will help!

I can't say I've experienced that, or at least not at a level where I'd noticed it... I did have the rear suspension arms replaced in November (mentioned in another thread), so that might also have contributed to the extra wear. Didn't consider that!

It may be worth checking on your vehicle, but replacement of these items usually requires checking the rear suspension geometry settings. There may be some adjustments on the back that you would not normally do, unless like you, this type of work has been carried out. I wouldn't put it past them to forget to check alignment that has caused the premature wear, although I can't say what constitutes good tyre wear on the DS7.

Hi,

Exactly the same - 22,500 miles. Never had a car that eat the rears before the fronts but still 4mm on the front!

i have only done 13.5k miles and I cant see any discernible difference between front and rear. Will monitor it but hardly doing any miles at the moment due to covid and the wife's new fully electric ID.3 An RWD EV in the snow is an interesting experience!

just limped to 26000 and have to change all 4 tyres on DS7 as front 2.2mm with near side back on legal depth 1.6mm gauges on tyres,they should be around 5-6mm for my driving at least,awful added expense for rear tyres cannot quite believe it have never had this on a front wheel driven car weird...
