Hold your head up high young Jedi, you're only a loser if you feel as such. I personally don't care for the covers on my own JK, but think people should run whatever they like on their Jeeps and not worry about what others think

whitebomber I agree. We throw something on as a spring ritual, that winter has finally ended. Don't keep it on in the winter, since the salt gets trapped in there. We're fans of the "Life is Good" theme, so that's our latest...

There are a lot of places online that sell tire covers with all kinds of designs and logos on them - not just ones that say Jeep. Give them your tire size, choose your logo, and they will print it on the cover for you at the same price as most stock design tire covers.

Find a design or logo that means something to you and go for it!

jk'n I left my dealer supplied one on. So far I've got good service from them. They were straight forward about getting me a new vehicle when I couldn't get the hard top to stop leaking after they tried several times. Love my new Rubi. That said, I don't mind advertising for them a little. Here is the real reason I keep mine covered: I figure that if I walk up to it an some loser is taking it off or in the process of taking it off, I'll know it isn't to inspect my cool tires, rather it would be the first act a thief would do to steal them so that would make the person a criminal and I would be looking for something to pop im in the knee caps with. With no wheel covers, a potential thief would still be able to walk away and I would suspect nothing if he hadn't gotten started yet or even if he had it half off, I might not know what he was up to unless I went around the back of the car to inspect it. Cover off = trouble. A good indicator. That was my thinking. I could eventually paint the cover black and air brush my own design on it. Or splurge and get a redi-made one.

thaduke2003 I personally plan on rotating my tires regularly, including the spare. It's a pain in the booty to pull on and off, and the benefit doesn't outweigh the cost. If my tires last 30k miles, that's about a year or so, they won't have time to get skin cancer from lack of cover Mark W.

HuGo_JK Yah I like the spare tire. looks good.

Down on the bayou, you should be fine either way It doesn't save the world (you should be rotating it in with every oil change anyway), and can be a pain in the bum to take off/put on.

iamagolfspaz I think my spare tire is sexy as hell so i wont cover it. I want everyone to see it
05-02-2009 12:18 PM
CNTLOSE I agree with donnie. Mine came with one from the dealer. It has their address and phone number on it and looks like crap.

That was my first mod, removing the spare tire cover.
05-02-2009 11:31 AM
donnie I got one that came with my 09.
Was put on by the dealer.
Im replacing it since they arent paying me for advertiseing the place.
Same with the license brackets.
I like the one in the previous post.
I think thats the one Im getting.
Personally, I think they keep the sun from causing premature aging of the tire.

If I was to sport one it would be similar to that. You can always get a solid color and have it air brushed with something custom.
