Show Us Your Tire Covers

I'm debating adding on a tire cover to the JKU but not sure what route I'd want to take. I like the look of the "painted to match" covers but feel like it might make the Jeep look to Hummer-ish. Also want to see a lot of the different covers people are using. Lastly, is there anything functional about a tire cover? ie. Makes the spare tire last longer due to decreasing sun exposure on the rubber as well as exposure to the elements?

(didnt see any threads like this - hope this isnt a repeat)

Well, there is another one. It was started later than yours but it seems to be the only one getting replies.

Not sure if pic will post. I don't know if it helps protect the spare or not, but I like "personalizing" my Wrangler.

Thank you !!! I wondered how many folks would even get it. Only one I found I liked better than going with no cover.
