Caravan, Motorhome & Trailer Tyres
With the caravan or trailer, it is easy to go on vacation. Also, you are completely flexible and save the costs for accommodation. However, a carefree holiday can only take place with the right preparation, including the right tyres. A car breakdown due to defective tyres is the last thing you need while on vacation. Therefore, regular inspection of the tyres is very important.
We at Challenger Tyres & Exhausts would like to give you some expert advice:
Pay attention to the condition of your caravan tyres
The condition of the caravan tyres is influenced by several factors. Above all, attention must be paid to the tread depth: If the statutory minimum tread depth of 1.6 millimetres is reached, the tyres must be replaced. Experts recommend starting from 4 millimetres to look for new caravan tyres.
Also, the age plays a crucial role: At the latest, after six years the tyres need to be replaced -even if the profile may still seem like new. Due to ageing, the rubber compound can no longer perfectly reproduce the driving characteristics. And even if the caravan tyres were not often in use and the caravan only stayed in the parking lot or garage, the tyres may be deformed by factors such as heat, oxygen or UV radiation. How old caravan tyres are can be easily read on the DOT number on the tyre sidewall. For example, if this was DOT 2712, the tyres were produced in the 27th week of 2012 and must be dismantled by the 27th week of 2018 at the latest.
Attention should also be paid to the correct air pressure - if this is too high, the centre of the tyre may wear out too much; at low tyre pressure the flanks become too smooth. In addition, the caravan should not be overloaded and should always be checked for air pressure after it has been packed.
Last but of course not least, the tyre size, speed and load capacity index have to be considered. Only compatible tyres can reproduce the desired characteristics and contribute to your safety while driving with the caravan.
