Out of season storage conditions can sometimes have a detrimental effect on motor caravan and trailer caravan tyres, so owners are advised to carry out a series of simple checks to ensure their safety on the road and the safety of their passengers and other road users:

Carefully examine tyres to ensure that there are no cuts or bulges and that the sidewalls are sound and not affected by ozone cracking.

By law, tyres must have a minimum of 1.6mm of tread, however, Micheldever/Protyre recommends that tyres with less than 2.5mm of tread should be considered for replacement.

Owners of trailer caravans with tyres that are over 7 years old should have them replaced irrespective of their condition.

Tyre pressures are vital and should be checked and adjusted in accordance with the manufacturer’s handbook.
