Best Fitting Spare Cover,,Stock 17" x P255

Im keeping my Stock wheel and tire as a Spare.

17xP255. Off a 2012 Sport 2 dr.

What is the BEST fitting plain jane,, all BLACK spare cover?

And where would a guy find one?

I have heard there are hard plastic ones,, but havnt seen any in person , or installed. This could also be an option if it looks CLEAN, and possibly would have a lock. Since Im sure they arnt cheap.

Otherwise , a Great fitting,, all black regular cover would do.

I have 15x8 MB72's mounted on 33" Falken WildPeaks coming in,, just 4 of them.

Thanks in advance

I say ditch the spare or go with a matching one. You can pick up something like the Poison Spyder Tramp Stamp and run without the spare. Why did you elect to not get a matching spare?

Actually, the combo you went with weighs less than a stock Rubicon spare wheel/tire. So weight wise you would have been ok.

But, given what you have just listed, I say remove it completely. Go for the tramp stamp or any of the other options out there. Would save weight, allow for better visibility out the rear, etc. Definitely a better option than covering the stock one up in my opinion.
