Hi

After I stopped my Auto 2.7D 07 S Type and as I got out I immediately smelt what seemed like burning rubber from the rear tyres. I had been travelling between 80-90 and accelerating hard. I went home not going above 70 and the smell didn't surface again.

Has anybody had this problem?

Many thanks

I get this sometimes if I've been driving hard taking the scenic route home. Its just the tyres getting a bit warm from being worked hard. It'll be more obvious if you've done a lot of hard accelerating and braking than if you have just been trundling on cruise at 70. If it does it when you've just been trundling along then I'd check tyre pressures haven't dropped too low. You haven't got Avons by any chance? I've noticed it more with my latest Avons than I previously did with my Pirellis or any other make of tyre that I've had fitted.

Thank you..

Thank you Renrut.........very helpful, just worried with the cost of tyres these days. I am running on Maxxis Victra tyres although I will check the pressures

On another point have you any thoughts on which is better remapping or chip upgrades for the 2.7D?

Smells more like the DPF regenerating to me

You are most probably right about the DPF regenerating, unless the tyres are rubbing then you would not get the rubber hot enough to burn
