Things to consider when purchasing trailer tyres Ipswich
The foremost requirement when choosing trailer tyres are the wheel’s rim diameter and the tyre size. The width and height of a tyre in millimetres can be gauged from the first 2 split number in the tyre size code, like 145/80R10. Here, the tyre width is 145mm, while its height is 80% of its width measurements. Last 2 digits indicate rim diameter in inches, i.e., 10 inches.
Tyre pressure is crucial to determine the load it can carry safely. The UK laws mandate tyres to be inflated to a manufacturer-specified pressure for optimum safety and car handling. A thick and robust sidewall aids in efficient car handling even on challenging road surfaces.
Why can’t you use regular car tyres for trailers?
It is common for many users to mistake regular car tyres for trailer tyres, given their apparent similarity.
However, trailers and caravans are vehicles built to carry heavy weights and are towed by another engine-powered vehicle. Regular car tyres Ipswich come with comparatively weaker sidewalls, leading to unwanted trailer sway, endangering the driver’s safety.
Therefore, trailers require specially designed tyres with a shallow tread depth and rigid sidewalls for improved fuel economy and vehicle stability.
How to confirm if a pair of trailer tyres is legal?
To ensure your purchased tyres conform to the UK tyre norms, check for the following trailer tyres Ipswich characteristics.
- Central tread depth: must not be less than 1.6 mm.
- Tyre pressure: should match the tyre brand’s specification according to the load limit.
