Excess Tire Wear Problem Found?
 
Many of you may know from the NV200 forums & Google that crazy tire wear, combined with a dedicated tire (From KJ Tire in Mexico) has frustrated many owners. I'm hoping I don't see these problems on my new CCE (bought in February) now with 11,000 mi.

Well just showing up on nv200forum.com is a revelation that Nissan may have had a problem with bad axles that are chewing up the tires, vs a bad tire manufacturing process.

It seems that if you suspect a tire wear problem, get the alignment checked with the possibility of a bad axle. I'd think in its third year of production that this problem has been corrected, though the source may be just coming to light (without a bulletin to dealers yet, per some NV200 owner's reporting)

So a little sigh of relief that this, if it is an issue, is getting uncovered and correctable.

Any idea of what exactly it could be? Bad toe? bad camber? how is the wear on the tire happening?

Before I bought my Express, I talked with the service dept about the tire issue. Seems they have seem some, but appears to be due to overloading.

Also, before buying, I talked with several service guys and they have had no issues with tire wear. Their vans were loaded, but no dropping.

I weighed what I added in my van. Shelves, me, tools, parts etc. As best I could. I also concentrated the heavier items in the center of the van.

I guess I will see by early next year!

Can you see if they are out of wack?

Hit 5000 miles on my van. Tires still look new. 7-800 pounds constant load....with heavier tools in the middle of the van for weight distribution.

Impressive, keep us posted on how things go with the more miles you rack on.

Hi
My rears looks great but fronts are wearing fast.
I'm at 9000miles.
It did not help that the dealer set the pressures 32/36 not 44/48

That's one reason why I keep a tire pressure gauge in mine and check my pressures once a week.
