It's your jeep---

If you have a tire cover that makes a STATEMENT that you like---useit--

If you like your jeep's color and wheels--runem--IT'S YOUR JEEP !

I've run different tire covers on my JEEP/TRAILER--IT'S MY JEEP !

That is one cool tire cover! Where did you get it?
Ebay I think. I had to do a terrible hack job for the rear camera, but we like it. It's been one of the reasons (besides obviously money) that I decided not to run a matching size spare. The stock 285 barely fit and I had to get creative to retain the fabric on the tire.

What's y'all's opinion on a spare tire cover - leave it on or ditch it?

Thanks
The beauty of spare tire is to show it. Not hide it :) So, ditch it.

I like mine and use it because my drive way has a reflection from across the street, neighbors window , that forces a beam of light directly on the tire at some points during the day.

How about a compromise? I found a tire cover to protect the rubber tire, show off the awesome wheel, and provide space for the back-up camera. It has the nice material cover, but a clear plastic wheel window. I dig it.

That's an interesting concept. Not sure I'd buy it but I won't stop anyone. lol

I can see the benefit, protect the spare tire from the UV, and one less PITA to clean behind, sucks washing the jeep and having to be a contortionist to reach in between the gate,tire carrier and wheel. and sorry I like a clean jeep.

How about them boomerang covers, some of those look decent.
