Tire protection

I have been using the white tire covers on my RV for years but would like to find something easier to put on and off and store. I like the idea of the tire screens (the fabric sun screen).I see that they are put on with snaps and that means drilling holes into the side of the RV to install them.
Does anyone have better way to put the tire screens on?

We have Magneshade tire covers. They only cover the tire portion of the wheel leaving the wheel itself exposed. They use bungee type straps that go behind the wheel to hold them on. Easy to use and look good in my opinion. You can see them at https://magneshade.com/products/

I am not sure I understand the problem. I have been using the white wheel covers for years and they take only a few minutes to install. Those wheel arch covers are going to take up just as much storage space, so I don't think you will gain anything.

John, If youíre referring to the Magneshade covers, they arenít wheel arch covers. They just have a bungee that goes behind the wheel to hold the disk shaped cover against the tire. They have a flexible plastic structure that allows it to be folded into a flat 13 inch circle. I have 6 and put them in two small carry bags, 3 in each. They really take up very little space.

Glen, I certainly wouldn't drill holes in my new Mountain Air. Are you covering the tires every time you stop, or only while stored? I also have the white covers. Mine are the type that have extra material at the top that drops over the back of the tire ( I believe they're Camco brand).

I only install mine when the coach is at home between trips. The biggest secret, I put them on before I air down. On my style, I slip them over the tire and then pull one side down and then the other, wiggling them on. I figure I can put one on in about 45 seconds.

Maybe the style you're using is the issue.

I would like to find something like this.
Magnet glued inside the wheel well and the sun screen fabric adhering to that with another magnet or metal.

X2 for the magneshade wheel covers. I had the white ones and wrestled with them, eventually just quit using them. Use the magneshades every time. 20 seconds each, or less, to put on.
