Tire covers

Ordered tire covers. Didn't realize they were canvas. Will they do any good for sun protection?

I have the white vinyl covers and they don't breath, I would think canvas may be better for the tires. If they block the sun from the tires I think they are doing their job.

I'm not sure if breathing matters. You might check Tireman9's blog-- he's the expert here.

My understanding is that UV and then Heat are the two big tire problems. So anything that blocks UV is good, but if you can minimize heat buildup in the rubber it's better. So, white tire covers are technically better than black covers ( if you're parked where your tires get direct sunlight), but the black covers are still far better than no covers at all.

Any shade works. Don't get wrapped up in technicalities. Breathing is a non-issue when more than 50% of the tire is exposed to open air (the backside). Black probably isn't as good as a light color, but the difference is minor.

Magne Shade has come out with some new tire shades that leave the center of the wheel open.

Good canvas will likely last much longer than vinyl, be easier to work with in cool weather and do the job as well as any other option.

Sent the covers back. Now to find replacements. Thinking of something like a solar shade

I saw something like those magneshade wheel covers with open centers. I didn't care for them.

Went to the web site and saw no mention of wheel covers. What am I missing?

I like the fact that they protect the side walls from UV and you still can keep your wheels washed and waxed without removing them. They are easier to put on than the vinyl covers but it's still easiest to do it before you dump your air.

I have a set also. Very nice, pricey as with all Magne Shade products, but well made.

We didn't use tire cover and had our tire - without cracks or rot - for almost 14 years!!!!! About 37,000 miles on them when we finally replaced them all.

Not saying this is a god thing. Just sayin'...
