The article the OP refers too indicates that is an obsolete view. The
from the Tyre Industry Council (TIC) is encapsulated in this piece
worry about supporting the weight of your caravan on axle stands. Radial
tyres do not distort permanently under load. Cross-ply tyres, especially
those with nylon cords in them did distort, but a caravan on cross-ply
belongs in a museum''.
The whole piece is quite interesting and maybe helps bring views into
21st century. I particularly liked the information provided which allows
to decode week and year of manufacture for the tyre.
Mind you I say maybe because a Caravan Club (CC) representative has
footnote indicating agreement, and refers you Page 593 in the CC Sites
Directory & Handbook. _But_ (yes you have guessed it) this gives very
different advice. In fact the advice given there seems more applicable
I am going to drop the CC an email about that and see what they say.
Ok .......... it seems a few people contacted the Caravan Club about this
article and you will find a response covering the various questions raised
in the latest Caravan Club Magazine, namely March '06, Page 27 appropriately
titled ''Tyred Out and Confused''.
