Tyre Care

When doing so, look for cracks, cuts, bulges on or distortion of the tread and both sidewalls, and be sure to remove any stones and other debris trapped in the tread. Wipe off any oil, grease or fuel. If you discover uneven wear, this often suggests a fault in the vehicle’s suspension geometry, so seek professional advice as to the causes.

If you have a puncture then repairs should be entrusted to a specialist. Holes should be plugged and patched to comply with the latest edition of British Standard BS AU 159, and inner tubes should never be used as a repair method.

It is rare to wear out the tread on motorhome tyres as they generally do not do the same mileage and are not subject to the same acceleration and steering loads of a car’s tyres.
