Newbie. Wheel covers

Time to pick up some wheel covers to protect against the harsh Arizona sun. I saw Camper's World had one listed for all 19.5 wheels and others listed by wheel diameter. Which measurement should I use?
Also the vary in price, anyone know what I should look for to determine a good one from a bad one?

The covers sold according to TIRE diameter, will be a better fit, depending on exposure to the elements cover life is limited, cleaning and treatment is required, no matter what price you pay.

I got 95% UV shades for windows and tires at:

Www.Sundancershades.com.
In Queen Creek.
The came out, measured, made a template, custom built them, and came out to install them. Very reasonable. Quality!

Thanks CampDaven,

They give no idea of details of the product or price range. Are these permanently attached to the vehicle and rolled down, or separately attached when you need then? About what did the set run you?

They snap on, roll up for easy storage.
Custom made per rig. Thus, price varies. They are such fine folks, and their work is so grand. They will give you an estimate if you call. Lower than online, and they do all of the work. No measuring and hoping it will fit. And they install so no mistakes.
I would say $600 is a ballpark figure.

Just make sure to get the black ones- they keep out more uv than white. It didn't make sense to me at first so I checked with some tire experts. They all said black was better.
