My 2007 Senator's tyres are showing slight cracking where the sidewall meets the tread so i guess its time for new ones. Where's best place to buy them? A caravan dealer? Or do car tyre centre's sell them cheaper? Or should i try online so i can have them fitted at my storage site?

I had 3 Dunlop tyres on our Senator (tyron bands fitted) I tried etyres but they don't cover our area. After a fair bit of net trawling and phone calls I ended up with Kwik fit mobile doing them at our home, ok I could have got them for £3 per tyre cheaper at a local tyre place but I would have had to take the van there or take the wheels off.

I used E-tyres. On their web site my area was not covered, but when I phoned I found that there was a mobile fitter who could fit the tyres. The van was outside my house so he did the work there, including balancing the wheels. I went fot Michelin Agilis tyres as that is what Bailey are fitting to there new vans. The price was competitive and with the work being done at home, caused little inconvenience to me.

Hi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try Pemberton Tyres in Pemberton,Wigan. Tel : 01942-222413. I have been buying from him for that many years I have forgotten. He will quote you supplied and fitted with new valves and balanced.

Life in general can be a journey of chance with some winners and sadly some losers. Your outfit can never be left to chance. A short-while carrying out essential checks can ensure a long-time of happy & safe caravanning for all concerned.
Ignorance can often be bliss but is certainly not an excuse and when continually disregarded they can be totally disastrous for oneself and the innocent parties.

In a way your question is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string.

 

What is most important to you. Price, convenience, good service, premium brand, mid range, particular manufacturer.

 

Depending upon your size of tyre if you want to replace like for like you may find that not many places will be able to supply. I tried getting on line quotes but couldn't find many who could do a direct replacement. Neither e tyres nor black circle could supply.

 

The cheapest I could find were http://www. tyres-pneus-online. co. uk. However they only supply. You get them delivered to one of their fitters and pay the fitter direct. Problem is that if something goes wrong you could end up being bounced between the supplier and fitter.

 

In the end I went to a local company.

 

At the end of the day it's really down to you to make inquiries.

Where ever you get them, make sure they are the correct load rating

This could be just the thread for you : I need new tyres for my 2007 Senator

 

Ours is a Senator Arizona. Obviously you may need different tyres depending on what Senator you have. The details are in the service book.

The majority of caravans have van tyres,

 

As far as I am aware there are only two tyres made specifically for trailers. Trailermaxx and GT radial Kargomax.

 

I fitted the latter and they were no more expensive than van tyres. In fact it was difficult to find van tyres in the same size as those already fitted which were Trailermaxx
