Thank you all for the input on this. One more issue I am pondering before making a decision. Which type cover would be best, one that fits right up against the tire(CW Magnashade) where the heat from sun will be directly transferred to the tire? Or the covers that attach to the RV body and allow air space between the tire and cover? I know both keep the UV rays off the tire. Not sure if the heat would be a big factor. I will be using the covers on the unit while parked at home until we can get the garage built. Thanks, again. GrAndy

IMO, the heat generated by sun on a tire cover will never approach the temps the tires are subjected to while driving, so it is sort of a non issue.

I like my tire covers to keep the rain off my nice aluminum wheels. When it sits the rain puddles in the center of the wheel and causes dust and sediment to adhere. Oh, and the sun thing....

I had a set of the MCD tire covers for our last coach. MCD had discontinued making them a few years back because of the many different patterns needed to fit all of the wheel wells out there. I'm pretty sure that's a link to an older webpage and a phone call would verify they no longer make them. They were a top quality product though.

I called MCD this morning and they stopped making the covers several years ago. The rep said they get lots of requests though. I suggested they consider restarting.

We have shade screen tire covers w/see thru panels so you can see the nice shiny wheels and they easily slip onto the top of the tires with a channel at the bottom I put an 18" rod into for weight ( not sure necessary ).

Got them from: RV WINDSHIELD COVERS of Florida.

863-660-9225 or 863-255-6733

rvwindshieldcovers.com

We've had 4 of them for about 6 yrs and still in great shape but of course we recently had to purchase 2 more 😀. I like the protection afforded the wheels and that you can still see them !

Goodyear G670's have a 7 year warranty on sidewall cracks.
I replace mine at 10 years and still no cracks.
Why would anyone want to replace tires that are still under warranty?

And I use the tire covers when parked more then 2 weeks at a time.
I agree
Instead of wasting money I prefer to give it to charity.
Lots of people in need these days.

They also do not trap moisture, bugs and dirt.
X3...I got mine to fit the tire. I recommend getting a slighting smaller dia so that when the covers are on, they aren't sitting on the ground when the center section is centered to the wheel. they will stay a lot cleaner that way.

Well, I went to CW and purchased 3 sets(pairs). Cost for the pair was only $10.67 per pair. Bought the 40-42 inch size, they fit ok on the rear tires, but very difficult to get the fronts on since the tires are taller. Also very difficult to get the strap on the back sides. Gonna return them and try the Magnashades. Hate that the MCD's are NLA. Good night to all, GrAndy!

Not a problem with the Snapon covers from Covercraft. Very easy to install and remove.

We had the CW white covers on our old coach. WRT to the bungee straps, just tie it to the hole you would fasten it to and slide it over the top of the tire. There is enough stretch that it reaches to the ground on each side. Saves having to crawl on the ground to attach the bungee behind the tire.
