Wheel Shades versus Tire Covers

Saw a couple of coaches with the MCD Shades used to cover the wheels/tires and thought that looked a lot cleaner and easier to work with than the standard wheel covers.

Anyone have any feedback on the MCD Shades, and also a good place to purchase? What about installation.

37' Class A, with no tag wheel.

Thanks

We got our MCD wheel covers in '07 and they are still going strong!
It is my understanding that they no longer make them.
Too bad, they are a great product.
I installed them myself. It was not difficult.

MagneShade makes the easiest wheel covers to put on. They are just a disk, open in center, with an elastic band just slips over the top of the tire. Best installed before dumping air bags.

MCD is no longer making anything other than shades. I wanted a set of their mirror bras a few years ago and when I contacted them they stated that they have gotten out of everything except for shade.

There are a couple of other suppliers who makes tire shades but they won't be as nice as the MCD ones. Luckily I purchased my MCD wheel covers back in 2004.

Same here, easy on, easy off and do not hold he heat like regular covers. Just a bit pricey.

We used this company for our windshield screen and tire covers for 8 years time and were very pleased with it. They are very reasonable.
