I am now going to get some new tyres fitted.I have tried 3 or 4 different places. Most of the tyres were made 2016, so 2 years old. Does that mean they will only be on Caravan for 3 years. Or is the date from fitting.

Try E-Tyres as the fitter told me that they don't fit tyres on caravans above one year old. Mine were about 8 months old when I had mine fitted by them a few weeks ago.

There's no location in your profile otherwise I would have checked first if they operated in your area.

Okay, hope you get sorted but your dilemma was identical to mine as no tyre fitting company could guarantee how old the new tyres would be. They will gladly take your money but you need some sort of guarantee that you are getting value for money as they definitely won't offer a discount if the tyres are 2 years old.
You could always make a prior appointment with E-Tyres and take your caravan to a local campsite where E-Tyres operate as they will come and fit the tyres on site (once they have been ordered). Just a thought that's all.

Check Tyres on the Drive, they're my usual go to supplier, very competative and thorough.
As for the tyre date question, this has been covered on various forums but the advice I've been given by several fitters is that you should refer to the actual fitting date, and with this in mind, ensure all receipts are safely kept. Although there's some opinion on degradation of the rubber during storage, it is actual far too minimal and inconsequential (fitters opinion, not mine).

I use http://hometyre.co.uk Very pleased with service and only fit tyres up to 1 yr old.

Even if the website says they don't cover your area, give them a call. I had to do this and they were happy to come out to me.

the date that you should go by is the manufactured date NOT the date they were fitted,because if you have a tyre fitted that has the manufactured date as 2015 but are not fitted until 2018 they are three years old to start with,even so there is no maximun age when tyres should be changed,only recommendations by the tyre companies,there is no law that says you must change them after 5 years,even some tyre manufacturers say that tyres if kept correctly there is no reason why they should not last at least ten years.
