How many of you......

How many of you actually use a spare tire cover on the back of your rig? I thought about getting one to just protect the tire from the New England winter and then removing it during the spring. Anyone know the advantages and disadvantages of owning one?

They protect against dry rot since your spare never moves. My spare is teh original one from the dealership in 1997. It has lasted this long because it was covered its entire life.

As Walker said, it helps protect against dryrot. However, if you rotate your ties regularly, including the spare, it is not an issue.

I use one.
