    What about your tracking? If you let go of the steering wheel, does the van beer to one side? If it does, the tracking could be out and this will wear the tyres quicker on one side

    No tracking is good. The picture attached is of my right rear tyre.

    What's the inner side look like, is it also warn to a similar degree?

    What's the left tyre look like?

    Had the same rear tyres for 5 years with minimal wear. Just replaced them in December as they were getting down to legal limit. Have had 2 advisories over 2 years at MOT. Citroen Relay swb 1100. 195 70 15 pumped to 60 psi.

    Outer tyre wear is simply down to locking your wheels round you need to learn to drive properly :p , I suffered the same issues in the past i just get them switched from front to back every 4-5 months at local garage they never used to charge me ;)
