Lucky U. 3 out of 4 of one set of mine are probably somewhere in New Mexico or beyond by now (I live near Denver).
Regarding not seeing anything supporting using covers. Again, you must not live at altitude. The UV here can be intense, and definitely eats tires. I did read somewhere that tires are OK if they are run at speed regularly, as the natural internal oils supposedly work to advantage. If allowed to sit, they dry out and are more susceptible to UV and ozone damage. Seems logical.
