|Tjmike003||You could always spray some protectant on the tire so the sun won't damage it.|

No, I meant rotate the tire as in spin it on the tire mount so that the same side is not facing the sun.
But, covered or not, it will dry rot eventually I would imagine.

|Buz 1||don't know why it matters what others think... my spare is 2" narrower than the rest & has severe sun damage. i'd like to cover it 4 that reason.. those that choose to rotate instead, have the funds to purchase 5 tires at a time to do so. if i find a spare matching rim before i re-tire i would do the same... otherwise,,, it's a 'Buckeyes cover, & i'll paint the top to match the flares....|

do you guys feel like I could go no cover if the spare tire does not match but the rim does?
Im running 31'' discoverer ATR with black steel d window rims and my spare is a 31" wrangler MTR (not the new Kevlar but the last style before) with matching rim.

|dmule3||should rotate all 5|

|WaterDR||So just rotate it.|

|SippiTJ||I have one on my 33 that has my favorite college logo on it. Not for protection or anything just purely because I am a huge fan.|

|billybobjoe||Personally I don run one, but I have to admit I like the Life is Good tire cover with the Wrangler on it: All Things Jeep - Spare Tire Covers for your Jeep: Life is Good, Camo, military, tie dye, "Jeep Thing" wheel covers + more!|

|TJNewbie||Mine came with a cover, so I use it, just to keep the spare protected from the sun.|
|03-03-2012 07:14 PM|
|Mudweiser||Agreed. If the rim matches, show it off. If it doesn't hide it. Course if its 3 sizes smaller then the rest of the tires...theres prolly no helping it|
|03-03-2012 06:50 PM|
Here's what I've got and I love it, even with my nice Apex rims. It'll be gone once the new tires and rims are on though ...partially because it won't fit on a 33

|wwch99tj||After market wheels no cover stock steel wheels need a cover IMO|
|03-03-2012 05:59 PM|
|Jake_Spence||Personally, I feel like if the spare matches the other four wheels then it looks better without.|

Spare tire: cover or no cover?
I happen to think my spare tire/wheel combo is pretty good looking as is. Wondering if there are any covers that would look even better.
