To the guy who said miss matched/ undersized spares are useless and should be taken off because of extra weight.... I got a flat while wheeling, good sized stick right through my side wall. I had a 30 inch spare tire on the back, slapped it on and drove out through the mud and the rest off the trail. all the way to my house with no issues( about 10 miles). I was in the middle of the woods, this was back when cell phones weren't everywhere yet... 2002 ish Any spare Is better than nothing, regardless of its size. As far as extra weight is concerned, my jeep has never been a racing jeep.... Nor will it be.
This is a pic of me driving out on three 35's and one 30 inch spare.
My Liberty had a simple, black "Jeep Liberty" cover on it.
My Wrangler is bare.
I like the look of my stock Sahara wheels in black.
However, I just rotated my tires, and the one spare looks pretty dirty and has scuffed up sidewalls (only 5900 miles on it and I'm too lazy to clean it).....so I might go with a painted semi-hard cover.
This one (in Billet) is $180 on Amazon...but I have to make sure that the bottom of the cover does not block the view the camera.
Got mine in black for $60 on Amazon from optimum accessories.
I put a white one, on my white Jeep, when I first ordered it from the dealership, that was years ago. I even printed a script Jeep logo and stenciled it on the back in black. It looked awesome. But, the years wore out that cover and now I'm nude. I got the fifth alloy wheel, so it looks great nude. I do plan to get a custom white one to match the background and my Jeep's name, on my front vanity plate, one day. So far though, my Jeep just isn't that vain. Mods, mods, mods. Do they ever end?
I really don't get the Tire Cover thing. If you like your wheels, why cover the spare ? It doesn't get any more sun,rain or snow than the other 4 tires and you rotate the spare in sooooooo ? I just don't get it. I don't think I've ever seen a cover I liked anyway. They all have some goofy crap on them. Please, someone show me one that's cooler than mine. Lol
Getting this as soon as I get bigger tires. I think it's a cool one.
Not long after I bought my 90 YJ my girlfriend started looking for a cover for my jeep. I want one that has a Brook Trout on it. You can find covers with all sorts of trout and other game fish just not the Brook Trout. The reason for wanting a certian fish, Brook Trout, is because I fish for them 99% of the time and also guide a little bit, just for Brookies. No dont want a Rainbow, or a Brown or salmon, Brook Trout, or I will be getting just a all black cover.
