You have the option of color and designs to compliment your vehicle.

Thanks DD... I see the snap ring cover come in only black or white from what I have shopped. Wondering if one brand is better, easier to use than another. We are weekend warriors. Thanks for your answer, I appreciate the help.

I like the Snap Ring covers because of the ease of installing, grab the side wire ends, push the top of the cover over the tire top and push the sides around the tire with the ring being behind the tire. The cover is tight and secure.

Thanks Jerry. That's why I like them so far. Just looking for opinions... Thanks again!

If storing your vehicle at home, save and store your expensive covers and use a cut piece of plywood to protect your tires.

Somewhat off topic but I think (or have heard at seminar) that parking on mats between all the tires and concrete is more important than the tire covers. We use placemats under the tires, kind of a nuisance and we don't always 100% do it, but when staying in one place for more than a couple of days.

Have the Magneshade tire covers. Takes less than 5 Minutes to put all 6 on our coach and even less to remove and store them. Nice thing is that they are open in the center so that you can still see those expensive aluminum hubs you paid all those dollars for.

Thanks. I have not seen them yet, but I'll look on line.

Jerry,

Can you give me more info on "mats between all the tires and concrete"?

Second the Magne Shade covers! Easiest and lightest covers out there. And they dry quickly.

I made my own. They go on with magnets behind the wheel wells. You can see them in the modifications thread.

FYI, tires covers are a necessity IF you have Michelin tires... (Goodyears not so much).
The first 2 sets of 6 Goodyear G159 tires on my coach were NEVER covered and they lasted 8 and 7 years with NO signs of cracking and NO problems.

On Nov 20. 2014 I had a set of 6 Michelin XZEs replaced at only 3 1/2 years of age, (per the DOT date code of 1611), because thousands of cracks were developing in/on the sidewalls.

IMO (which tires you buy" is far more important than "which tire covers".
