Hi! Welcome to IDCE Wheels & Tyres online store.
If you want your caravan to perform at its best and be as secure as possible, you need to put some thought into the wheels and tyres. Poor handling, decreased fuel economy, and increased accident risk are all consequences of using the incorrect wheels or tyres.
Steel wheels are commonly used because they are less expensive and more long-lasting than alloy rims; however, their heavier weight can negatively impact a vehicle’s performance and gas mileage. Lighter and more fashionable alloy rims come at a higher price and may be more vulnerable to harm.
Several variables, including the weight of your caravan and the expected driving conditions, will determine the size of the wheels and tyres you need for your caravan. Both the mobile wheels guide and the caravan tyres guide on this site will help you determine what you need for your caravan.
A tyre’s load index is a numeric code that represents its highest load capacity at the optimal inflation pressure. Choose tyres with a load index that is sufficient for your caravan’s weight plus its cargo.
A tyre’s speed rating is a letter code that shows the fastest speed at which the tyre can be driven without compromising safety. Choose tyres with a speed rating that is suitable for your caravan and typical driving conditions.
It is recommended to replace your caravan tyres every 5-6 years, even if they appear to be in good condition. Over time, the rubber can degrade and become less effective, increasing the risk of tyre failure.
You can check your tyre pressure using a tyre pressure gauge. Simply unscrew the valve cap, press the gauge onto the valve stem, and read the pressure. It’s important to check your tyre pressure regularly to ensure optimal performance and safety.
If you have a punctured tyre, you should stop driving immediately and replace the tyre as soon as possible. If you are unable to replace the tyre yourself, you can contact a professional tyre service for assistance.
There are several ways to improve the fuel efficiency of your caravan, including choosing fuel-efficient tyres, reducing the weight of your vehicle, and maintaining the correct tyre pressure. Our fuel efficient – eco friendly guide provides useful tips on reducing your carbon footprint and saving money on fuel.
It is not recommended to install different size tyres on your caravan, as this can affect the handling and safety of your vehicle. It’s important to choose tyres that are the correct size and type for your specific caravan model.
