I have a plain black one that fits perfectly and it saves having to wash the spare.

I had the same uncovered spare on my 08 JK for nearly 14 years. The tire was fine in fact the day I traded it in, I had a flat tire and drove to the dealer on the spare.

Most JL's have nice wheel/tire combinations and look much better uncovered...Putting a cover on a JL spare is kinda of like wrapping a beach towel around the ass-sets of a cute girl at the beach, why???

The Sahara came with a cover and when I put the BFG 33's on I didn't do the spare. The cover is still as tight as it was when bought the Jeep.

Heard it helps keep the tire from degrading over time.

Rubicon did not come with one. The same long-time dealership I always use. I didn't even ask why.

Like other Jeepers said it's like the Bling on Jeep. lol Beats me.

I have looked at Jeep sites and they carry nice covers with a camera cut out for the size tire you have but not planning on one.

The Photo is for the Tire cover to the right not the misses to the left. :LOL: :like:

Uncovered. I think it looks better

also you don’t cover the other 4 wheels why cover the spare? Never understood it.

Unless you have a Sahara I never thought spare tire covers looked right and even then I think they should be hard and painted to match the body color
I like uncovered - but - The Mercedes ones for the rear spare that are glossy and match the paint are slick looking

When I had my Jk and I got it because I was exited, and liked adding little thing for my first Jeep. I don't fault those who get them for their Jeeps, they don't look bad.

Here's the cover on our 2020 Recon. It came that way with a camera cutout. When my wife ordered it one of the options asked if there was a camera on the spare.

Mines uncovered. Seems like around here, the ones that have em covered are from the dealer or it's a High School girl.

Besides,,it's nearly impossible to find a tire cover for a 37 12.50!

Uncovered for sure on the JL. I like the cover on some of the older wrangler models , unless they were really nice rims and looked good for show.

Up until recently I used a tire cover on my spare. Now it's uncovered just because I thought I'd go with the different look. I don't really have a strong preference either way...I like both looks.

I personally think it looks ok at best on the Sahara. The Jeep is utilitarian and part of that rugged look is the exposed spare wheel/tire. I get it on a g-wagon. This is no g-wagon!
