Choosing the right tyre just got easier

Safety is of paramount priority to all motorhome and touring caravan owners, and the European Union has made selecting the safest tyre even easier thanks to the introduction of a new grading system.

All car, caravan and motorhome tyres must now be assessed on criteria including stopping distances in wet conditions and efficiency/noise during driving. These results will be evaluated and an overall grading calculated for the tyre.

This information will help caravan and motorhome owners to understand the differences between tyres – and the reasoning behind the higher cost of some tyres – and better equip them to select a tyre best suited to their needs.

Unfortunately, even with new tyres that have been correctly fitted, accidents can happen. Coast offers motorhome insurance and caravan cover at great value prices – to find out more call Freephone 0800 614 849.
