      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Uneven Tyre Wear

    Hi Yes tyre pressure was increased in accordance with the handbook for full load. The tyres are Kumho. Thanks
  2. Uneven Tyre Wear

    Hi - New to Forum. Have 07 S-Max which was bought nearly new and now done 55k miles. Travelled down through France in the summer with a full load and started to hear an oscillating or vibrating noise from the back wheels. Despite the noise there seemed to be nothing wrong and nothing adverse developed. Came back and the noise seemed to improve although it always seemed to be there in the background. Anyway, popped into a tyre company today for them to take a look and when they took the tyres off they said the sound was caused by uneven wear which was clearly visible. The tyres aren't that old and they mentioned that another S-Max driver had been in recently with the same sort of problem/tyre wear. They seemed to think this was something due to the independent suspension on the rear. Just curious whether others have suffered similar issues? Funnily enough, I'm sure I had similar problems with my previous car which was a 51 Mondeo Estate. This used to tow a caravan. Can heavy loads impact wheel alignment/wear? Thanks wizzer
