Any of you guys know where you can get custom tire covers? I'm looking to get one that I'm pretty sure nobody carries in stock. Or can I just order a blank one, and get a special sticker or something on it?

IDK plain cover and vinyl stickers might be the way to go----than could change it later if you wanted to....peel off old vinyl and apply new......

I'm working on my custom cover design and found a blank white vinyl cover. Question, what's the slit/open flap part for? I hate to be so dense, and I thought it might be for the brake light? But that doesn't seem right. Here's the rough version of my Yeti edition design, BTW. (not final)

:whistling: The slit, is placed at the bottom and it's for drainage of the cover inside/"give"/ stretch and it's usually coupled with an elastic back band--

Sometimes the slit is used to allow room for a tow hitch support, for the spare tire !!

Copasetic ?

Thanks. Sorry for being dim. There wasn't any note or instruction sheet included and I've never used a cover before. Didn't get any elastic band or hooks as I've seen elsewhere either. But that makes perfect sense.Off to the screenprinter as soon as I finish the design up.

The back sewn edge of the cover (open) should have an elastic cord inside the sewing(circumference), if not-how is the cover going to stay in place ????

No, it does have elastic inside the circumference - I thought you meant that there should be an elastic extension cord that extends out of the slit, maybe to cinch it all up like a hoodie drawstring or something.

I've seen others and videos on YouTube where there's elastic all the way around (like this one) but there's also some sort of cross-cabling in the back or some way to snug it all up once it's on.

I got mine there too. Did it in hardcover black to match the rest of the paint. Change out various static clings for whatever decal you are feeling like that day.
