tire covers
 
do you really need them on the spare tire? my car salesman said it would prevent dry rotting but hes body language told me he wanted to shove a giant advertisement on the back of my car. rolling without a spare tire cover (long term) shouldnt be a problem would it? i plan on eventually putting it in the rotation when i get my tires rotated.

if you're putting in in rotation then its fine. if its going to sit there until you need it (could be years) then cover it. Otherwise, it looks better with just the tire there IMO

Even "IF" you decide to use one they can be had fairly inexpensively on the web without the logo's or at least a log of your choosing.

I bet you the salesman would change his tune if you tell him yes, you want the tire cover. But only if they are going to pay you advertising fees.
I told my dealer they had 2 choices. To either remove the dealer emblem from the back of my Jeep (without scratching it) or pay me 25 bucks cash a month to advertise for them.

simple question, simple answer. thanks.

i defintly like the look of the uncovored tire, but who knows when ill rotate em, might be every 5,000 like a good boy, or i might be a cheap-o and do it every once and a long while.

ill probably just shell out the 30 bucks for a cover, i just think there overpriced for what they are...33 inches of fabric...

without a cover it looks way better, if itīs a big tire.
on my old TJ i didnīt use my spare for 6 years and it still looked like new.

how should i rotate the tires incl. the spare tires?

I told the dealer pretty much the same thang....They were absolute asses about it. Went home and removed all signs of there sales crap and told'em never to put as much as a sticker on "Silver" again. They have'nt...

I put a cover on mine, ordered it from Jeepworld, did the gas cap thing too. I like the tire showing but my work location leaves something to be desired and it's a nice looking tire so I figured some looser would try to steal it, course now they'll just take the dang cover.

I put the locks on the tire for good measure. The guy where I ordered the cover said stolen spares is the norm if they aren't locked up well.

I didn't even think about putting it rotation, that makes sense.

Any one know a site were you can get covers with different things on them? Maybe along the lines of a Jolly Roger (aka Skull and CrossBones)?
