Check Caravan Tyres
We are now starting the new caravan tyre season and we have already seen a large influx of camper vans and caravans coming in for new tyres. This is a very pleasing trend, and I think that it shows more responsibility towards the importance of tyres on this type of vehicle.
The VW in the picture is a classic, but some of the campervans on the road are as big as buses and should Check Caravan Tyres at regular intervals for signs of wear and cracking on the sidewalls, and if in any doubt the tyres should be changed. however, the biggest danger for caravan owners is to fail to see the cracks that develop in the bead area of their tyres. The tread looks great but if the tyres are older than six years, then you are more than likely to have cracks in the bead area. The problem with these cracks is that
eventually they will join up and develop into a large split, resulting in the tyre coming apart, we have seen this so many times always Check Caravan Tyres. Sometimes the cracks can appear in the shoulder are, but this is with running your tyres under pressure. You must check your tyre pressures when they are hot and not cold, and inflate them to the correct readings when any weight is carried, say when you are going off on holiday, but when you unload the caravan or trailer, set them to the unloaded pressure.
