Fitting the Right Tyre
The original tyres for a caravan are determined by joint consultation between the caravan and tyre manufacturers and take into account all aspects of operation. Any changes in tyre size or type should not be undertaken without seeking advice from the caravan or tyre manufacturer. In some European countries, it is illegal to use replacement tyres that differ in certain respects such as size, load or speed rating, from the tyre originally fitted by the manufacturer.
It is essential that tyres of the correct specification are fitted to caravans, trailers and motorhomes. The same tyre construction type, i.e. radial or cross-ply, should be fitted to all tyres on the same axle.
Across an axle, tyres should also have an equal size, load index and speed rating with identical wheels. The same combination should apply to the spare. Tyre pressures across an axle should also be equal.
