If you have a caravan, you’re probably already aware that they are different from your standard cars and have different needs when it comes to tyres. Many people think that since caravans have an easier life as compared to cars, vis-à-vis daily usage, their tyres will last considerably longer.
However, that’s not always the case. While it’s true that on an average, caravans travel substantially lesser distances than an average car, other factors come into play that damage and degrade them.
GT Autos is home to an exclusive range of caravan tyres that you can choose from for your caravan tyre replacement.
How are caravan tyres damaged?
As mentioned earlier, caravan tyres are prone to damage and deterioration and require replacing after a specific time. Some of the reasons for this are:
- Like standard tyres, caravan tyres also age and lose their structural integrity over time.
- Exposure to sunlight or moisture for an extended period, especially when not in use.
- Caravans can weigh as much as 3,500 kilograms, putting immense pressure on the wheels.
The rate of degradation is, of course, quite slow and you may not even notice it with your naked eyes.
When Should You Buy New Caravan Tyres?
The consensus is that you should change your caravan tyres every five to six years even if they look acceptable to you. You can tell the age of your caravan tyres by the markings on their sidewalls. It mentions the week and the year of the tyre’s manufacture.
If the date is over five years old, it’s now time to buy new caravan tyres.
