Open Face Spare Tire Cove- where can I get one?

I'm about the repaint my stock rims red, and buy some chrome baby moons for them.....I'm considering doing the same for the spare tire as well if I can find a spare tire cover that only covers the tire and NOT the rim.
Online searches have not revealed any readily available options for this sort of thing.

Does anyone know of a non-custom source for such a cover for our small Scamp tires?

Ryan,
You could just get a full cover and use it for storage only. When on the road leave the spare uncovered in all its glory.

We have never used a spare cover on our 2004 Scamp.
We added an extra vinyl Scamp logo to the back of the trailer and used a hub cap and trim ring to match the Wheels on the ground.
I just relaced the "B" rated spare in February and it showed no signs of UV damage. Now all three are "C" rated radials....

Look on the internet for 'spare tire cover rings' or 'continental kits'. You can buy just the outer ring.

Ah, so that's what they are called, that helps with a search. Unfortunately those are super expensive- $300 and up. I was hoping for a cheap vinyl type, but it seems they don't exist in stock.
I suppose I'll probably just keep the spare covered up with a standard vinyl cover then- or go naked and fancy.
