Often fists it to 6 or 8 ply tires (covered van tires) Caravan is the best tires for caravan, today it load index codes that determine how many kg caravan bear.
You should only use van tires for his caravan, and van tires can be inflated to 4,5 bar – A tire is marked with a C on the tire.
Although your caravan tires only contact between your caravan and road, Many campers do not realize, how important it is with good quality tires.
It is important to buy tires for the caravan that has the correct load index (How much weight each tire must be loaded), and preferably with more load index than the caravan's total weight. For example, if your caravan weighs 1.500 kg, be it tires you should purchase could be loaded with 750 kg pr. deck 2×750 kg = 1.500 kg, but you may have a risk of overloading, or one deck is loaded more due to more load on one side, each tire could be loaded more than the 750 kg pr. deck.
If you buy a van tires it is important, that they are as rigid as possible – The stiffer the tire carcass and the side wall structure is, the more stable the caravan run.
The tire's "skeleton", as the tread is secured to the, called carcass (See picture), a deck for caravan should not be comfortdæk, but better be as rigid as possible in order to achieve the best driving performance / stability.
You should only buy tires for your caravan – A tire is marked with a C on the tire.
Beware of old tires on the caravan
Many Danes running on holiday with the caravan in the summer months, and there is good reason, inspect the caravan tires, before leaving.
Every year we see accidents with caravans, both in Denmark and in the rest of Europe.
Tires on caravans rotting, before the tires wear out. There will typically occur with the, that the sidewall is cracked (has many fine cracks). It is the signs of aging of the rubber due to the sun's, and atmospheric influences.
There may be plenty of tread left on the tire tread, but the tire will often be decisively weakened. When the tire come to work at high speed and a holiday loaded caravan, it happens, the tire suddenly explodes.
Often caravan tires only designed to the limit:
Caravan full load capacity and speed is usually utilized, so that there is no profit to give of – We therefore recommend that you check the caravan tires, especially for aging damage.
It is the air, which gives the tire load carrying capacity and strength to withstand impact from bumps in the road. Some campers do not think about the caravan stands all winter with half-flat tires, and when spring / summer comes, you drive with semi-flat tires down at the gas station somewhere to pump the tires up to proper pressure. That is a good idea, to invest in a tire pressure gauge and possibly. compressor, then you can check tire pressure at home. Remember to regularly check tire pressure and always with cold tires (not just after a long drive).
Even after this short trip the damage can be made on the caravan covered, because the tire is overloaded in the carcass, showing himself as blue color heat injuries and internal separations. In more severe cases rodent rim into the tire walls.
a tire, that has been subjected to the above treatment, can when it is applied to holiday trip where the caravan is fully packed and speed is high fail suddenly.
Besides poor road contact and fuel economy, the wrong tire pressures lead to abnormal tire wear and lead to shortened lifespan – Low tire pressure halve tire life!
Recommendations that can improve your security:
• Be aware of aging damage: The sidewall may not have small or large cracks or bulges.
• Do not leave your caravan at half-flat tires for a long time. It damages the tires.
• Do not half-flat tires - tires can be damaged even over short distances.
• Do not drive too fast - the risk of tire damage develops increases with the go.
• Remember the tire worst enemies are: low tire pressure, overloading, high speed and curbs.
• If you lose a valve cap, you should soon buy a new. If you drive without valve cap, can sit dirt road in the valve which can then leak the next time you check your tire pressure.
- Buy only brand tires.
- You should only buy tires for your caravan – A tire is marked with a C on the tire, it provides a more stable and safe driving
- Demand tire is so new produced as possible, production time is on the side of the tire, especially if you have pace 100 approval, here must cover no more than 6 years old.
- Inflate the tire to max load index example 4,5 bar or what it says on the deck.
- Get shift valve while mounting new tires new tires.
- Get balanced wheels, it helps to provide the caravan more stable ride + your wheel bearings are not damaged or defective prematurely.
- It is also important to control the tires, if your caravan has not been used for a while. Check for cracks in your tires as well as for wear.
It is the air in the tire that carries the caravan, Why it Matters, that tires have the correct tire pressure for optimum drive and stability and the best fuel economy. Check only tire pressure when tires are cold, not after a long drive. It is important to regularly check your caravan tire and wheel nuts, which can minimize the risk of injury, accidents as well as reducing wear and tear.
In addition to the use of tires with the correct dimensions, it is also important, that the tire can handle caravan weight. Your caravan weight determines how much each tire must be able to carry (Load index), and preferably greater load index. Do you have a one-axle vehicle you must divide the gross vehicle weight 2, with a 2 axle must divide the gross vehicle weight 4 – then you have the figure for what each tire, as a minimum must be able to carry. See picture and table below Load index – Load index.
Wheel balancing will result in a more stable ride and, your wheel bearings are not damaged or defective prematurely.
spare wheel / lappemiddel:
You should bring along a spare tire of the same type as the caravan. When you check the tire pressure of the caravan, you should also check the spare dæktryk.Ved possibly. puncturing may be used a liquid agent in the tire patch, However, you should be aware of the supplier's directions bla. on driving radius and max. speed after using the patch agent. Liquid patch agent is only considered a temporary solution. You should as soon as possible get his defective tire repaired / replaced by a specialist. Remember when the wheels have been removed, and tighten the wheels after about. 50 km drive.
Winter and all-year tires:
Is the tire marked with M + S label and the mountain- and snowflake symbol on the tire, it is a winter tire. Is it only marked with M + S mark is an all seasons. Summer tires do not have a label on the side. The maximum grip in winter with snow and slippery roads obtained with winter tires.
Reading of production time:
The tire production time can be read in a 4-digit code. The code first two digits are the week number and the last two digits are the year. In this example, the tire produced in week 51 year 2007.
Some tires are directional pattern, the tire will be marked on the outside of labeling rotation direction eg with arrows, or printed outside / inside (the outer side / inner side). The deck should be properly installed in accordance with the rotation or page name, otherwise achieved covered best properties not.
A tire must also have a E-labeling. E-labeling consists of a large E, and a small number inside a round circle. The number indicates in which EU country covered obtained his E-labeling, However, it has no meaning, gives E-labeling Always apply throughout the EU. E-labeling must be on the deck that it is properly and legally.
Tyre pressure table – PSI / bar converter:
Your caravan tires are in constant contact with the road, so caravan tires mode is important for your safety. Incorrect tire pressure can cause bursting of tires, and possibly cause accidents, damage to your caravan.
You should check your tire pressure before each trip, and with cold tires. Higher temperatures will cause the air pressure rise, so if you check pressure on hot tires may mean, that when they cool down the pressure will fall below the recommended tire pressure.
You can read the tire air pressure on the tire. See the picture below which shows the tire is pumped with 65 PSI/ 4,48 Bar.
Tyre pressure table:
Why is proper tire pressure important:
They are many advantages to keep the tires at the right pressure. It is not only important for your safety, but can save you money in the long run.
If the tire pressure is low, it can cause them to wear out faster, meaning, you will have to replace caravan tires more often. Properly inflated tires will last longer, as they wear down uniform, and also provides less resistance on the road means, that your car does not have to work as hard, and to save fuel.
Well maintained tires will also be able to, to carry heavier loads and can better cope with higher temperatures. Both useful qualities, if you are going on vacation to warmer climates.
If your tires need replacing, you should make sure to use the correct replacements. In some European countries it is illegal, to run with different tires.
It is highly recommended, to switch all of your caravan tires at the same time including. new valves. This would ensure, all tires are in the same condition, and it provides the same level of safety and grip.
Hastily code must correspond to it as the caravan's approval to run such 100 in Germany, If you have Tempo 100. Typist comes caravan tires with rapid code Q which correspond to the tire must run at maximum. speed 160 km/t.
|Hastighedskode||max. speed km / h||Hastighedskode||max. speed km / h||Hastighedskode||max. speed km / h|
Responsible Ning Index – Loadindex:
See table below” abbreviated as LI. Kg / tire – means max per kilo. deck. Picture shows this deck can handle load index 104/102 which cf.. table correspond to the tire can carry 900 kg.
|AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire||AT THE||Kg / tire|
Rules on driving on winter tires in Denmark and other countries:
Check the rules before you run with caravan or car. See the link below:
Radial- and diagonaldæk:
Tire market represents today almost exclusively radial tires. Back in 1946 came radialdækket market, and it was a success. Before the radial tire was diagonal tire used. These tires bæltelagets difference is in position against the tire rolling direction. A bias-ply tires have placed these diagonally towards the scroll direction, whereas they are placed radially towards the scroll direction of a radialtdæk. The change has improved tire properties and most tires sold today are radial tires.
Avoid driving over or into curbs, deep potholes, since tires, rims, shaft may damage, and could cause damage to other parts of the caravan. Are you running into or over curbs you risk affecting tracking, with consequent uneven wear of the tires, and no case impair the stability when towing a caravan.
Where should I buy tires:
You can buy tires at your local dækmand, however, you focused on the good advice (See above “Hints”).
You can also book your tires via the Internet.
Dækonline as being new, all the tires, that has been produced in the past 2 year. Sometimes you can also find tires on your website that are older than 2 year.
Stocked items, older than 2 years are categorized as DOT goods and marked with the year of production, next to the tire tag. (Example: DOT2007). This way you will know, the tire's age is older than 2 year, before placing your order. Referring to the DOT number on the sidewall to identify the calendar week and year of production. (example DOT1409: week 14, year 2009) Note, the proper storage will improve the characteristics of the material, as a non-direct exposure to the street traffic will enable the rubber compound to harden over time. According to guidelines from BRV (German national association for tires and retreading trade) tires are rated as 'brand new', if stored for up to 3 year, and 'new', if stored for up to 5 year.

Abnormal tire wear on caravan:
Abnormal tire wear on your caravan was often because your caravan axle is not tracking correctly. The tires can be worn down after only about. 3 kilometer, and often cause it worse driveability.
You can see it in your caravan tires on the outside which is very worn in the rest of the caravan covered, it is called toe inn and toe out. Some caravans can be had toe inn at about. 5,0 mm left and right side, and a special workshop can correct it for about. 0,5 mm. You receive a udmålings report documenting the imbalance and what it has been addressed to.
Be aware faulty wheel bearing can also be the cause of the problem, but often it toe or toe out.
