    I have a set of 5 continental Vanco campers 215/70 R15 cp 109Rs for sale if you are interested. They were taken off my Mh yesterday as we have changed to 225s to uprate from 3500kg to 3850kg. They are date coded 02/15. 4 have done 3,500 miles the other is unused (spare).

    OK, Evesham is not too faraway.
    What price would you be looking for?
    I have someone coming around tomorrow to service my gas/ fridge who knows
    a tyre fitter with good prices for MH tyres.
    Thanks

    Don't want to hi jack OP - we are also looking to change all 4 tyres soon - Probably to Verdestein Winter ot all season
    We have also just uprated to 3850 - - and was also thinking of moving up to 225 - however talking to a tyre fitter and he suggested that as axle weights remain the same - ie rear axle max 2000Kg then no need to up rate -
    Whats your take on this - are you having to increase tyre loads? or are you thinking just a good idea?

    Once you guy`s have shopped around for a price...

    Drop @Brian and Jo a PM/Conversation..... He own`s his own tyre business...

    Loads of times I have gone back to him, as others cannot match his price..

    And he get`s them sent to a tyre fitter depot of your choice.. (y)

    I hasten to add I have no connection with said @Brian and Jo and even with all the referral`s to him have never had so much as a bottle or box of "Wine" from him.. :crying1: :rofl:

    Tight git... :wink::giggler:

    Going through Svtec to uprate ours and changing to 225 with air assist allows us to increase back axle loading to 2240kg.

    Bagger53 I hopefully replied to you regarding pricing. As you can see this is my first post so may have got it wrong.

    Recommend contacting @Brian and Jo for tyres, sorted us out with 4 new tyres so I could up rate the rear axle through SVTech. very quick service and turnaround which was appreciated. Elaine dropped around donuts and beer the next day as we were heading down to Cardiff.
    @old-mo your name came up in conversation during our visit :whistle: Lips sealed.........;):)

    Have a look at Asdatyres.co.uk (They have tyres fitters at independents)

    I got some Sailun Commercio Van Tyres fitted on our van (look at the scores, not the name). I'm well impressed with both the performance and the price (sub £60)

    You could also uprate to 225 x 70 x 15 that will give you a load rating of 112/110 which gives more wiggle room on the loading.

    I am going to go up to 225's when I can. The reason for me is simple.
    When I am coming down from those pesky french speed bumps, I want more wiggle room than the 60kgs I have at present on the rear axle.
