Retired and loving it.
My personal preference is No but it's my preference, not yours necessarily.

I kinda feel like: I'll let you be you and you let me be me.

Not a fan myself, but if it works for you - have at it.

I asked the salesmen if they wanted to keep the ugly one with their name on it before I took delivery. He admitted it was kind of sloppy looking and ugly.

Lol. I pulled the dealer stick on logo off my Jeep the moment I walked out after signing the paperwork. The salesman looked confused. I told him if they wanted to pay me $100 a month I’d leave it on and for another $50 a month I’d put a tire cover on with their logo. He didn’t even bother replying to that

As for whether the OP should or shouldn’t put a tire cover on? It’s your Jeep. So what you want to it. To hell with everyone else.

Me too! It is a pet peeve for me I will not advertise with license plate brackets or tire covers and no way in hell putting a sticker on!

That compass one above and some of the other personalized ones I see like the SpecOps Skull are pretty cool, flags, eagles stuff like that.

I've seen some cool tire covers, but I prefer the 'no cover' look, looks more rugged to me!

Basically the same for me. I told them not to put one on in the first place.

I just have their stupid license plate surround until my new tag comes.

I couldn't agree more, but I'm always thankful when the dealership slaps their logo on a removable, afterthought part. In my neck of the woods it's common for a dealership to rivet their badge to your trunk. My Dad's friend has a horror story of a dealership doing this to his Corvette in the 70's even after he explicitly told them not to.

Yes!!! My OCD doesn't allow me to see a spare on a tailgate that doesn't match without being annoyed. My buddy has one, and I'm thinking of buying him a cover just so I don't have to look at the nonmatching spare anymore.
Just for you, I will get one 🤣

Well, tis the Season... So I would rather rock a Christmas Wreath (lights optional) as a Spare Tire Cover at this time or year....

And I'm sure some people have done it on their Jeeps.

i don't cover it.
mostly because i don't think it needs any more protection than the other 4 that are on the ground.
if i did get one, it would have to be sized to match my up-sized tires,... then it would also have to have a provision for the camera.
but frankly, i kinda' like the look of the tire and wheel i have back there, and don't mind them being in view.
the only exception would be if it served some functional purpose; like a small storage area, and/or a trash receptacle for while on the trail.
so, for me, it's a 'No'; but not a "No Way!".
