Caravan tyres must be more robust than conventional tyres. Like reinforced "C-type" tyres, for example: 215/65 R16C 109R. We advise you to replace your tyres at least every six years to ensure proper safety.
When you are not using your caravan, we advise you to follow these recommendations to prevent deformation of the tyre carcass:
- Replace the tyres with special supports designed for long-term parking;
- Or, raise the caravan using jacks so that the tyres are not touching the ground;
- Or, regularly raise the caravan to change the position of the tyres one quarter turn before lowering it again.
What is the correct pressure for a caravan's tyres?
If the manufacturer's handbook does not provide pressure recommendations, we advise you to inflate the tyres to 3 bar and as high as 3.5 bar for reinforced C-type tyres. If the pressure is indicated in the manufacturer's handbook, please follow the recommendations.
Do the rear tyres need to be overinflated for pulling a caravan or trailer?
You can inflate the rear tyres to a further 0.4 bar compared to the recommendation for normal use. Your tyres will not suffer deformation.
