    Out in the van last week , at bakewell ccc site saw a van with Vanco tyres on, it didn't say camper or anything else like that but something I havnt seen before, there was two small pictures on them one a normal van and one of a camper van, so they obviously were made for either, they had 08 on them and looked like new, in fact they had as much tread on them as I have ever seen, does anyone know what they are or if they still make them , wouldn't mind finding some as mine are 06 and getting worn now.
    Sorry for starting up on tyres again but they look the works to me.

    tyres are recommended to be changed every 5 to 7 years regardless of how much tread is remaining.

    UV light attacks the 'rubber' and perishes it.

    Sounds interesting! If they are a cheaper option.... anything is cheaper than the €175 I had to pay in France during October after searching all day to find a Conti VancoCamper 15" that nobody seemed to stock.

    they sound like by your description, Continental Vanco four seasons.
    I have just had two fitted on the front of my Swift Voyager I got them fitted at my local Quick Fit. They have the picture of a truck and a camper van on them .
