Read quite a few posts about people seriously considering these. If anyone could give me some feedback on what they think of them I'd be most grateful. I'm reluctant to go down the Michelin route having read more negative views than positive, I guess other option might be the Continental Van Contact 4Season.

Is that from experience for a Peugeot Boxer 2018 onwards?

"2018-2023 MODELS WARNING: Some 2018+ vehicles have a "security gateway" module (SGW). The SGW module blocks any diagnostic tool from executing commands on the vehicle (like actuators, procedures and even clearing of DTCs). It is not possible to unlock the SGW module with Multiecuscan."

Would be a bit of a chance to take, £650 for 5 tyres and then can't change the TPMS setting to stop warnings.

Don't suppose you have any screen captures of Multiecuscan on your vehicle to show where the options are for TPMS adjustment?

https://www.multiecuscan.net go on this site and you can download and use the simulator to find your way round and see how comfortable you are with going round the system I used options- Fiat, ducato(type 290) 2.0 multijet ,other then tpms option then click simulate and the option adjustments are there. Wont let me do screen shot's at the moment hope this helps :unsure:

Had mine booked in to have all 5 Falkens fitted on Thurs but cancelled today as it's a Peugeot Boxer '68 plate and read lots of issues with the TPMS alarm trigger point when reducing tyre pressures from original setting.
Our previous motorhome was a Peugeot Boxer.
I had the trigger points lowered by our local Peugeot garage.
From memory it cost £60.
Note - Not all Peugeot garages are willing to do this.

I used multiecuscan to alter the trigger pressures on my 2021 citroen relay. Yellow cable.

All those worried about changing TPMS settings, may not need to. The recommendation for pressures from Falken are a nats within the ones recommended by Continental for their equivalent camper tyre.

Well the Falkens got fitted today. Good service from Protyres. They used Falkens's figures for tyre pressures. First impressions is that they give a softer ride with less crashes and bangs over the potholes. Surprisingly not so wallowing than the Continentals on roundabouts as well. Hope that continues for the future.

When I first drove off the tyre pressure light was lit. But once I had driven for a while it switched off and no warnings showing for the rest of the journey. (y) 🤞

That pretty much mirrors our first observations post tyre change. Out of curiosity, what are your axle weights and what tyre pressure settings did they use for such?

When fully loaded my rear axle runs at about its maximum, i.e. 2500kg. The front axle is about 1900kg. Falken's figures were 5.2bar on the rear and 3.8bar to the rear.

As an afterthought,I am now using tyres with a higher loading rating than before. I wonder whether that could increase the rear axle load limit? Or would it need more changes? Lenny HB

Peter, on a front axle of 2300Kgs, and a rear axle of 4650Kgs, (twin wheeled), Falken recommended 4.0 - 4,2bars respectively.

Cheers,

Jock. :)

Jock, I do not have a twin wheeled rear axle. My front axle is a maximum 2300kg, but we find it impossible to move any more load from the rear to the front to take advantage of that figure, because of the layout of our motorhome. The figures I gave to Falken were the actual axle loads in touring mode rather than the maximums.

I was just surprised at their figure of 5.2 bars on the rears Peter. :whatthe:

It is similar to the figure for my previous Continental Campers on the same axle load as supplied by Continental. But having looked back I can see that the the figures in Falken's chart on their website which I posted a link to a few days ago are different. For the same axle loads they showed 4.75bar for the rear and 3.5bar on the front. However that could be because it was a generic chart that covered all their range of commercial tyres.

I may do a bit of experimenting in the future. But I don't want to drop them too low as that may make the TPMS report a fault. It is a bit of a pain to reset those values. My Son managed it a few years ago, but I don't know how and he may have forgotten!

What weight are you running at Jock?

I need some new boots as mine are coming up on five years old now.

I’m seven tons running weight and a good five on the rear axle. We also park up for a few months in Spain, which concerns me not being CP tyres.

Also, are these are a winter tyre?

Thanks!

Apols for the late comment.
If you are parked up for long periods, especially in Spain, have you thought about covering the tyres up to reduce UV damage?

I am due to have Falken All Season tyres fitted 225/75/R16. and want to get the optimum tyre pressure for them.

In the pressure chart attached does the “load” mean

Load per axle
Load per tyre

My max axle loads are
Front 1840 lbs
Rear. 1900 lbs

If anyone knows the correct interpretation of the chart I would be grateful.

Looking at the pressures I would say axle load.

I hope you meant kg or have you filled the van with helium. :LOL:
That would appear to give about 52psi front and about 56psi rear which seems about right.
