Your home from home, on wheels! One of the best ways to holiday and see the world whilst having all the comforst of home.


However, Caravan tyres can be a bit tricky...


Most caravans stand for around half the year, and like all tyres, are prone to perishing in these conditions.


Tiny cracks, which are not always visable, form in the rubber and weaken the side of the tyre making it likely to fail or 'blow out' at high speeds (e.g. on the motorway).


Aside from the fact nobody wants to start their holiday on the side of the M6, this can also be incredibly dangerous. 



Our advice, which matches The Caravan and Motorhome Club advice, is....


  • All tyres age and deteriorate due to exposure to sunlight and atmosphere, even if not used.
  • Caravan tyres can suffer fatigue due to the repetitive small impacts they suffer in everyday use.
  • Being stored for long periods of the year without use can put undue strain on one particular part of the tyre.

It should go without saying that tyres which are damaged or worn to the legal minimum tread depth must be replaced immediately. Caravan tyres need regular replacement, irrespective of their visual appearance. We recommend that you replace your caravan tyres when they reach five years old and should never be used when more than seven years old.

If your tyres need a high inflation pressure (50psi or more), you should check regularly for signs of deterioration from three years old and should not be used when they reach five years.

Remember – the tyres age starts from when it was made, not from when it was fitted.
