Spare Tire Covers – Choices and Options

To many people a spare tire covers are considered to be something that is unnecessary. However, if you have a spare tire that is stored on the exterior of your vehicle, a spare tire cover is a necessity. Usually a spare tire cover for these types of vehicles comes with the vehicle from the manufacturer, but what should you do when the vehicle no longer has a cover? Should you buy a new spare tire cover or should you leave the vehicle as it is?

The answer to that question is that you should buy a spare tire cover. Many people have spare tire covers with special logos, designs, pictures, or sayings. So at first glance it would seem that spare tire covers are not a necessity. However, a spare tire cover actually serves several useful purposes. First, it keeps the tire from becoming faded and discolored by the sun and the elements. Second, continued exposure to the sun can deteriorate the rubber causing it to crack, which can cause the tire to be more susceptible to getting blown, popped, torn, or punctured. If you have ever seen what happens to the tires of an old car or tractor that has been left outside elements you will know how severely the tires can deteriorate when exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Third, the spare tire cover helps keep the spare clean, which helps make changing your tire on the side of the road, while wearing a suit or dress, a much less messy job.
