Vinyl Tire / Wheel Covers
« on: January 30, 2008, 11:32:06 AM »
I'm looking at getting some covers for my tires to protect them from sun.  The covers I see listed for 22.5" wheels have a stated diameter of 42", but my tires have a diameter of less than 40".  This is taking in the hub section on the steers and tags; the drives are even less.  What covers have others used for their tires?  What's a good place to order these in terms of quality and price?  Thanks for any (useful  ;)) input.

I cutout plywood for my schoolie and it has worked great.  The rubber "flares" make for a great way to hold it in place.

Thanks for the info.  I thought about doing the plywood thing, but these are being bought for me for a birthday gift.  I'll get the ones from Camping World (where I've been looking at them).  Definitely no frilly anything on my bus!   ;D
