Tire Cover Suggestions
 
Once again I am here for some help. I would like some suggestions on which tire covers to buy. I am in my 2006 Fleetwood Revolution. Tire size 295/80R225. What size does that equate to and would your recommend one site over another to puchase from?

Thanks in advance.

You need to measure the diameter of your tires, and then use the chart shown on this site: Tyre Gards Vehicle Tire Covers

Don't forget to add 4-6" for the 'pushout' center of the wheel cover on your fronts!

I have 19.5" tires but had to have 24" covers...these are what I ordered, fit perfectly, and never had to use the tiedowns on them.

We bought the Deluxe tire covers from CW. The colors match our MH. Just be sure you order covers that are big enough for your tires!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless! :thumb::D

I bought tire shades from a local maker in the Mesa Market.
95% UV protection.
Does not trap moisture on the tires.

I use these and hightly recommend. No bungees and no crawling on the ground trying to secure them (see the video). They fit over the tire and snap into place:

Snap-Ring TireSavers - better protection for your tires.

You just measure across the tire to get the correct size. They come 2 in a package.

Got mine here:
Covercraft TireSavers, TireSavers, Tire Cover, Tire Covers, Tire Protection, Wheel and Tire Covers

Hope this helps!

i bought those from cw for $20/pair. be sure to check cw website for their prices first, more than often the net prices are much cheaper than store retail prices. store will match whatever the net price is if you ask.

X2 on these. Easy on and off also.

Purchased ours from www.rvsunshadeco.com. Phone the fellow that custom builds them. I think the covers are called No-See-Um.

They are very well made, and not that fuzzy backed vinyl material like we had before with the old CW covers. The old ones cracked, as well as irritated the heck out of me when the fuzzy backing collected "stuff".

I'm thinking about using this:

Reflectix 4 ft. x 25 ft. Double Reflective Insulation-BP48025 at The Home Depot

as reflective wrap for around the outside of windshield of the MH... AND maybe using the excess to stand up in the wheel wells to protect the tires. Thoughts???

Think ... wind. Breezy day will have you chasing the reflective material like a wild kite.

I have the same tire covers....They are so easy to put on, no crawling under the MH to tie anything or attach bungees. They have never come off during periods of storage.

They look like they would take more storage area(not fold up small) then the regular covers like CW. How wide is the snap ring?

By the way I never have had to do any crawling putting them on. In over 15 years of using them never had needed to use the bungee or cords to keep them on. And regular covers are 1/2 the price as the snap ones.
