Excessive rear tyre wear on Nissan NV200 van

I have a tyre wear issue with my Nissan NV200 van. The fronts usually last for 27,000 miles, yet the rears wear out (mostly on the outer rim) at 14,000 miles.

I have spoken to other NV200 drivers and they confirm this on their vehicles (fleet users). Nissan deny any responsibility. Do you have any other queries about this issue?

No, but it would depend on the loads carried in the van and how high they were carried in the van. The higher the weight, the greater effect on the centre of gravity. We'll publish this in Ask and see if there is any response.
