Every caravan owner knows how important it is to have safe and legal tires. But it’s amazing how many caravan owners fail to spot this. Each year hundreds of caravans are destroyed and many results in serious injuries being caused. The reason why caravan tires are prone to blowouts is due to infrequent usage and the tire walls are overlooked, owners think the tread looks great, however with the infrequent usage comes cracking in the tire walls which when heated on a long journey often become more prone to blowouts.
