All about caravan tyres
Keeping on top of your caravan tyre maintenance is extremely important. When you're about to set out on a long drive, it is essential to ensure that the tyres fitted to your vehicle are up to scratch. If they're not, you could be putting yourself in harm's way.
Are caravan tyres different from car tyres?
It's often believed that caravan tyres are different from that of car tyres. This is because caravans generally carry a heavier load than cars, thus the tyres need to be able to withstand a heavier weight, and sometimes, for a longer period of time, as it's likely you're driving further in your caravan.
With this in mind, caravan tyres are similar to van tyres. But it isn't necessarily the type of tyre that matters, but instead, the load rating for the tyre you are looking to buy. When buying a new tyre, it is important that you refer to the caravan manufacturers' guidelines on the load index needed for your particular caravan, so that you don't get tyres that can't hold the load. It also isn't usually necessary to replace your tyres with those that have a higher load index.
Caravan tyre ageing
As caravans are used less often than cars, it is important to know the date that your caravan tyres were manufactured. As with most products, tyres carry a lifespan.
From the point a tyre is manufactured, it begins to suffer from a natural ageing process. Over time, the composite materials that are used to make tyres degrade. Tyres don't need to have physically been driven on for this process to start - so regardless of how much you drive your caravan, it is important to keep an eye on how long since your tyres were manufactured.
Checking the lifespan of your tyres is quick and simple - take a look at the sidewall of the tyre and within a window, there are 4 numbers printed. The first 2 numbers show the week of manufacture, while the last 2 digits show the year of manufacture.
Tyres that are older than 5 years should be replaced. Likewise, if your tyre manufacture date has only 3 digits, then it means the tyre was manufactured in the year 2000 or older and should be replaced as soon as possible.
