Hello,
Don't know how big a hurry you're in for the covers, but keep your eye on Camping World if there's one anywhere near you.

A few months ago, I got mine there and I hit it when they had a sale of buy one-get one free. For me it came out to about $16.00 per cover! They're nicely made too.

It's about the time CW has their Spring sale going on.
Also there are these: http://www.magneshade.com/MagneShade...#Tire%20Shades
Best regards,
W.D.

I bought the snap on tire covers from Covercraft. Great covers, easy to install. No bungee cords needed.

I have the Magnashades. The nice things about them is that they go on and off extremely easily, about 5 minutes to install all 6, and have open centers to allow you to see those expensive aluminum wheels you paid for.. They fold up in seconds and store in bags that hold 3 ea.

Just a thought here, but if you purchase new tires like you should every 5-6 years, the UV effects of the sun will have little or no impact on your tires in that time. If you plan on running your tires past their safe useful life, I would definitely try to extend their life. Why not just save the money and apply it toward new tires when the time comes? Just my thoughts...

New tires at 5-6 years. I bet the tire company's really love you.
And you are not retired yet and living on a set income.
Or maybe you won a large lottery.

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.

X2 on the Magna shades. They go on easy, store in a smaller space than others and the wheels stay visible. I especially like the open wheel design as it let's me check the tire pressure without removing the covers a few days prior to departing.

They also do not trap moisture, bugs and dirt.

I have also been using the Covercraft tire covers for 5 yrs. They are easy to put on and take off. I've never lost one and they still look brand new.
I put mine on in Nov. and just took them off. I'd buy them again!

This is one of those issues where there appears to be no consensus. There have been several long and informative threads on this issue over the past three years here on iRV2 and there are as many good arguments on tire covers as there are good arguments on the lack of need for tire covers.

I bought them and carry them with me but I don't regularly use them since we move every week or so as we tour the country and it is a pain to put them on and take off (they get dirty in many parks). When I get to the point that I drive to a park in a sunny state and then stay there for 2 or 3 months, I will in all likelihood start to use them again, however, that hopefully is a long time in the future Most people that I see using them are on motorhomes that haven't moved for months.

The Camping World 2 for 1 are a standard "sale" and it is repeated frequently during the years. No need to rush. The MagnaShade covers are nice but very expensive given their competition.

I don't use mine much at all. If you do a lot of touring, I would not worry about them.

I am resisting the type of tire cover that is Installed around the tire itself, hard to install. Has anyone found a source for a tire cover that is held onto the body with strong magnets? Don't like snaps.

I am also looking at a tire protection that is applied to the rubber. See this link for the product I am talking about.
http://www.amazon.com/SunBlock-For-T.../dp/B001FCB5BK
They claim-"One application lasts up to five years" and "U.S. Air Force tested and approved". Has anyone tried this product or determined that is approved by the Michelin tire company?

Also, do a Google search on "303". It is what I use. I have a hard time believing that any treatment is going to last 5 years. As hard as most of us try, we will occasionally do some "tire scrubbing" on the drives or tag axle going around a corner with a curb, and I would guess that that removes the UV protection. The "303" is the only product recommended by "Diamond Shield" company for use on their front shield covering, and it is used easily on the tires. Amazon and other on-line companies have great prices on "303" and I buy it by the gallon and apply with a spray bottle.

I use MagneShades for tires, windshield, wipers and mirrors for short term stops, and CW standard covers for long-term storage. Use 303 on tires and any other rubber I can find, on 3M shield and entire rooftop including A/C shrouds, and on slide out and window awnings. Would love to use on my main awnings but haven't figured out a way to reach them with good coverage (but I will) ...

Have you considered the covers made by MCD Innovations? Link below. They attach around the fender well and slide off and on. Have seen several coaches with them and they look sharp.
