Quality tire covers at a fair price?

First post, so bear with me. Not sure how to do all.

I just bought a new set of tires for my old travel trailer and I want to protect the investment.

Could someone advise if any manufacturer in U.S. makes a good quality tire cover at a fair price. I saw some at an RV store in town and they looked kind of flimsy and were $30 a pair.

Who makes them that hold up and sell at a fair price. I looked at campingworld site but did not see any reviews so I decided to ask this forum.

If this is not the correct forum please advice where I should be.

Thanks,
Bill

Please try our good friends at RVUpgrades.com. They are very reliable and they should be able to beat the price you were given.

Hello, I was looking also, I'm not a fan of Walmart but they had what I was looking for. They only had them online. I think they were about $25 for 2 they have a 3 yr warranty. I got them and they seem pretty good.

Thanks for you input Scott. I will check it out. I wanted to buy American if I could. I found a place called Mels BBQ Grill Covers Mels BBQ Grill Covers Inc that
says all of it's products are made in U.S.A. and says the barbeque covers are made of high quality material so I wrote them to see if their tire covers are made of quality material as well. I might call them about it later to see. A second thought is I probably should not be buying tire covers that are too heavy and bulky if they are like that as more room to use up in R.V. Just looking for something of good U.V. resistant quality and made in U.S.A. if possible that would be competitive. Unfortunately, when Sam Walton died they went totally China. Remember the old commercials on how they would buy from American factories and keep Americans working. No more. The family went for the big bucks and said to hell with American producer jobs. I use to have a bumper sticker from Walmart that said "Buy American, Stay American". Kind of sad how they turned. Thanks for your input. Bill

While your talking tire, RVUpgrades sells one of the only water based tire shine ( 303 Aerospace Protectant ) products. The other oil base products you find at WalMart and auto parts stores leave a brownish haze after a week, and are not good for your tires (dries them out) The 303 lasts for a few weeks before the need for more....

Get the covers in white. It will keep the tires cooler.

Thanks,
Bill

Superslif,

Thanks for suggestion. I wrote it down as an option. Looks like a product to use on weatherstripping and vinyl on trailer to help longevity versus just looks?

Thanks,

Bill

P.S. Nice pictures!
