Spare tire cover

I'm looking for a spare tire cover that seems appropriate for "egg style" trailers. Has anyone found a source for their spare tire cover that allows you to customize or perhaps there are already egg styles available? Thanks for responding.

We bought a spare tire cover for covering the sunside tire at a garage sale for $1. Of course it says, "Enumclaw Chrysler Jeep" on it. This place seems to have a large selection:

Well, good luck on that one! I bought my first (brown) tire cover from Tire-Covers.com. It is a nice cover, but now that I'm having Bean painted, I wanted something spiffier. So last night I went to SpareTireCovers.com, and designed a BEAUTIFUL cover with the name BEAN and a coffee cup. Soon after, I got an e-mail saying they didn't make covers that small (R13). So I spent HOURS on the internet looking---found a place in California called Threads to Threads that does custom orders.

I know they do our size because they had a pic of a fiberglass camper painted like a ladybug, and the tire cover was black with big puffy red lips---CUTE!

But after some thought, I went back to the first place, ordered a plain black cover, then ordered vinyl letters and coffee cup decal from Decal Zone.

We'll see what happens

Yep, Roger is right--but that's the place I went that doesn't have our size---sizes start at 25 inch.


BTW: that BEAUTIFUL custom cover I designed was going to cost----$189!!!! Probably just as well I couldn't get it--

Here's ours, came black from the Suzuki factory. Just had it hand painted with white lettering to match the trailer. The cover size really does not matter as it only rides/sits atop the spare tire and secured on the back side (trailer side) with a draw string. Our cover is from an all wheel drive SUV with larger sized wheels and tires, but because it only rests atop our 14in spare, it looks like it belongs there.....

I keep getting ideas, I need to stop reading the forums. I like the cover, mine appears to be impossible to get off, unless I cut it off.

Grab it wherever you can and pull off the top. Then loosen the nut holding it and lift the wheel off the bumper if that's what's giving you problems. That was my problem.

p.s.: Do it now before you have to. I just learned that my bottle jack was too narrow to safely lift my Casita to change a tire.

It is just a real tight elastic band, work your fingers under it and start working it over the tire.

I got my vinyl cover at a local RV store and had it silkscreened.
