Sizing tires for covers

Maybe I'm getting too old to do the math but I can't find out what tire cover size I need to comfortably fit on my tires. I have a 2014 Bounder 35K tire size - 255/80R 22.5G which when measuring are 39 inch tires. So do the 36 - 39 inch covers fit or do I go with 40 - 42 inch?

The smaller size will fit , but require more effort to get them on.
The larger size will install faster but , hang a little loose and have to be secured to keep them on if you're in an area with strong winds.

I have same tire size and ordered these from Camping World - they are tight enough the wind will not blow them off. Quality appears to be pretty good. I do not use the bungee fasteners - don't need to.

Ended up getting the right sizes by mistake. I ordered one set at a time. the first set for the sunny side of the RV. The rear fit just fine and the front were a pain. The next month , I ordered a second set, but got the next size up. Take your basic measurement on the rear tires, then for the front order the next size up.
