If your tyres are printed with only a 3-digit number, it means your tyres were manufactured before 2000 and should be replaced asap.

Caravan Tyre Ageing

Regardless of use or mileage, all tyres have a lifespan. Even a caravan tyre never driven on will deteriorate over time. Natural ageing of the composite materials that form tyres occur from day one and it is widely recommended that caravan tyres should be replaced at 5 years old. It is not always possible to determine how long the tyre has physically been fitted to the wheel on the caravan. As a general rule of thumb if you are in any doubt as to the age or condition of the tyre, do not take the risk.
