Protectng the tires

Which is better; a cloth-type tire cover or a solid (thinking plywood) shield? The coach will be parked most of the time, but in Arizona or Nevada year around. If my working schedule permits, perhaps a short journey out of the area.

I plan to live in my coach full-time, so it will pretty much stay put.

We use home made tire covers. My wife, Lynda made them out of marine vinyl. They are easy to put on, and have lasted 4 years now. We first purchased ADCO covers, but they only lasted about 18 months.

As long as you block direct sun rays, it really shouldn't matter what material you use.

I vote cloth or better yet vinyl, just because when stuffing a piece of plywood in your wheel well, you run the risk of bumping things...and scratching things.

I bought a set at my local RV dealer. All 4 for $50

I bought two and made copies out of marine vinyl. No cover will keep the ozone out, so cover them best you can from direct sunlight.
