these are 16 inch,205/55 r16 v standard,no knocking so hopefully the bushes have more life in them,are the bushes easy to c from under car?to check condition?will be getting it in soon to have the alignement checked.
this is a common problem with tyres thet are not the origanal fitment on the mondeo (eg upgrading from 16inch to18inch) it can upset the camber which is not adjustable on the rear unless adjusters are fitted, get an alignement check to eliminate any problems that might be there.if the bushes were shot you would here a knocking over bumps

i forgot to say about that,a day after i got the car i checked the levels etc etc,but both rear tyres was down in pressure something like 23 ibf/in should be 31 but i thought this would cause wear on inner and outer side of tyre??? seen the powerflex fitting guide etc etc,thanx 4 reply.
for powerflex bushes fitting check this out
and click the fitting guide,going back to your tyres i presume you have the correct pressure in them and they are not underinflated ?

so its not tyre pressures?u mean both outer edges of tyre with under inflation?
under inflation causes wear on the outside,over inflation causes wear on the middle
