Instead of spending the money on tire covers, just use a scrap of plywood propped against the tire to block the sun. You can even get fancy and cut it to shape if you want.

Or stack your empty beer cases next to the tire.

Don't you have bottle/can deposit in BC No way I would tie up something like 6 cases of returnables, at $2.40 each to protect the tires.

I need those when I get the next ones so I don't have to pay the deposit. Besides the kids in the neighborhood won't swipe the scrap plywood as quick as the would those cases.

Expert analysis.
I bow to your learned expertise.
Probably plastic Safeway bags, knitted together, would do the trick.
And, they are useless for anything else.

Wow!! Thanks for all the responses! So it sounds like we definitely need some kind of protection for the tires - while in storage it actually sits on limestone and gravel, so no concrete. But it does get a lot of direct sun. Thanks for y'all's help!!

I use black leaf trash bags to cover my tires. My trailer has 14' tires. When I travel I take them off and recycle them and use the old bags for the grass clippings. Then I just put new covers on the tires(black trash bags). I even cover the spare cover with a leaf trash bag to protect it from the sun.
