    The same company set mine to 38psi. Different branch. Good job I checked them after 2 miles. Makes me wonder if they pump them up that high on all cars, with or without a work instruction to do so...?

    @ Darmain.....according to the handbook that i have in my hand right now :

    TD4 normal driving conditions (upto 4 passangers and luggage) tyres should be at 26 PSI front and rear.

    I'm struggling to understand why the diff rather than the VCU suffered.

    I'm only a week into Freelander ownership; but I thought it was the VCU that controlled the difference in propshaft speeds and it operated symetrically (i.e. there's resistance in the VCU when the rear prop is going either faster or slower than the front).

    26psi is a bit too low for me as i find the tyres tend to wear t the side I stick to 30psi:)

    I run all the time at 26psi mostly motorway - less cornering - and mine wear pretty even.

    I've got 4 partworn Synchrones 225/55 17 in my garage going cheap-cheap,cheap-cheap.

    I fitted 235/55 Conticontacts, and of course can't mix them.

    PM if anyone interested. Tyres are in Aberdeenshire - I'll be back in UK at the end of the month.

    I've owned my freelander for a year now & run my tyres @ front 28psi & rear 30psi. I pull my caravan regularly & felt the rear tyres looked flat when hooked onto my caravan. If the van is fully loaded I have put the rears upto 32psi. Tyre wear look to be pretty even across all 4........I have noted that you don't wear just two tyres at a time, think all four will need changed at the same time.....costly. I thought my Discovery was sore on tyres, think my Freelander is eating tyres........:mad:

    I'm sure the book recommends 40 (or 44) PSI all round when towing a heavy weight.

    I did a few runs between The West Midlands and Glasgow and noticed the fuel economy was much better with higher type pressures. Felt smoother too.
