where did you get your spare tire cover?
« on: July 04, 2012, 09:41:01 PM »
Ours is falling apart and needs replacing....don't want to spend a fortune on one. Maybe a plain one that I can add a custom decal to.

Thanks,
Beth

I bought one of the cheepo covers from ebay a couple of years ago. It looked like this one  http://www.ebay.com/itm/SPARE-TIRE-COVER-9-12-rim-with-American-Flag-only-fits-Trailer-Popup-Camper-/261055221109?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3cc81a8d75&vxp=mtr

I regret to report that like most things in life,  I found you get mostly what you pay for.  the cover broke down in the sunlight after one year outside.

I haven't bought another yet.

No offense, if I have to pay $60 for a tire cover...I'd just as soon use a Hefty bag! [2C]

I never kept a cover on the spares of my p'ups - stored them so they looked good when selling the campers.  Around here there are mice problems and I found the spare tire cover (as well as the propane covers) attracted them to build a nest within.  The last thing I want to do is attract mice anywhere near the camper.

Something that might be of interest to promote the life of the vinyl spare cover, is to cover the top of the spare tire with aluminum wrap (as in Reynolds) so that when the hot sun is beating down on the cover the tire chemicals are not so subject to affect that cover.

Well, I only have small tires so I was limited to where I could find small tire covers. That was only $20.

The one wolf/moon tire cover is pretty decent but not nearly as powerful as a 3 wolf/moon cover would be.  Read the reviews of the 3 wolf moon t-shirt here:

After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'howl at the moon' from time to time (if you catch my drift!)......


Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a 3 wolf moon spare tire cover.
