Tyres Load & inflation tables

The extraordinary demands placed on tyres fitted to caravans mean that, in the interests of safety, it is prudent to avoid continuous operation at or approaching the tyres’ maximum load capacity. It is recommended that the maximum vehicle load does not exceed 90% of the combined tyre load capacity as indicated by load index. The following tables reflect this recommendation by highlighting in red the axle loads in excess of 90% and up to the maximum permitted for the tyres. (The loads shown assume two tyres per axle).
