UK caravan owners have been advised that before they take to the roads this summer, they should ensure the condition of their tyres is not putting them at risk of a breakdown or accident.

"Out of season storage condition can sometimes have a detrimental effect on motor caravan and trailer caravan tyres," warned independent tyre retailer Micheldever/Protyre.

The company issued a list of tyre safety checks designed to ensure "a trouble-free holiday break".

Motorists were told to check tread depth - which is required by law to be at least 1.6 mm - but also to look out for deterioration to their tyres' sidewalls.

Micheldever/Protyre recommended that regardless of the legal minimum, drivers consider replacing any tyre with a tread depth below 2.5 mm.

The firm also said that irrespective of wear and tear, any tyre exceeding seven years of age should be replaced.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801603573-ADNFCR
