Tire covers

I'm think about getting some tire covers for my Scamp to use when it is parked in summer outside of the shelter I have it in for winter. I'd like to provide some protection from the sun for them. Does anyone else do this and where did you get your covers.? I'm talking about the tires on the unit not the spare.

I do as my trailer is parked when not in use on the outside spot of a cover carport with full exposure to the west, so direct sun beams down on it until it goes down.

You can buy them at pretty well any RV supply shop. I have even seen them at Walmart in the RV section. Most are made for much larger tires than what we have but the have a strap on the back so they can be tighten up - so far I haven't had one blow away even in the heavy winter winds we get here.

I use 39 gallon black trash bags to cover the 14" wheels on my Casita. I had a set of tire covers, but my dogs found them as a great place to mark. I got tired of washing them and while raking my fall leaves decided to try the leaf bags on my tires. They fit perfect! You can't tell the difference between the tire covers and the leaf bags. Now I just replace my tire covers.
