Tire covers

Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice. Is it better to buy vinyl tire covers, which might crack with time and weather or canvas, which might be messy and a hassle when wet?

I have the canvas and haven't had an issue with them. They're currently covered in snow. They're there to protect against UV rays, for the most part, so you don't really need to put them on or have then on when raining or too wet, just my experience.

geO,

 

By far the best idea is to never sit in one place long enough to need them...

 

Let's get out there and go CAMPING!!!!

 

Hope you have a wonderful season.

Thanks folks for the info. I'm gonna go with the canvas set. I thought they would come in handy protecting the tires from the sun. Here in the south that sun has no mercy.

geO,

 

This might be a bit late - but - if you go with the canvas, do not get the cheap kind.  I bought a set from Harbor Freight several years ago and they lasted just about one season.  I then purchased the vinyl kind that have the flannel on the inside.  These have lasted several years and are OK except for where they have been "weed wacked" to death.  If you plan on using these while on the road, be aware that they can be a bit bulky and are certainly stiff when it is below 50 degrees or so.

Its when one wacks the weeds.

 

Using what is known as a rotary string trimmer a "lawn" maintenance person cuts or trims along a fence, sidewalk, house, or other places where it is difficult to cut "grass".  In my case, these people are "trimming" the weeds away from the area around my camper while it is in storage.  As they "trim" the weeds that are near the wheels, the "string" from the trimmer beats the hell out of the vinyl on the wheel covers.  So, I made covers for my covers from some old plywood.  It seems to have solved the problem.
