WTB - metal spare wheel cover

Looking for one of this white spare tire inserts (cover).
I would also consider the hard plastic one (Part No: STC7889), but the simple white one that only covers the rim will do just fine.

Let me know a reasonable price including shipping to 02332.

I guess my other option is to get one from the UK, but I'd rather look stateside first.

If you find a black one I'll trade you, before I plastic-paint mine black.

they aren't metal. They are plastic and prone to cracking

Oh!
Thanks Doug.
I still think it would really tie the room together though!

The hard plastic full cover (the other one i mentioned) is really nice but harder to find and more expensive. A bit more "dressy" than my truck needs.

AWESOME!
Stoked that somebody got my reference


the carpet matches the drapes, but I thought something like the insert-type cover would clean it up just enough.
The hard/soft cover I have no is nothing more than an advertizement for Liveridge UK.

As much as I appreciate D-90 and all the help found here, it would have to look really cool and be cheap in order for me to put a logo on my truck. Same for clothes, it pains me to have to walk around with somebody's label/trademark and will only do it if its super-high quality.

So you refuse to walk around in something that isn't super-high quality, but you're willing to drive around in something that is far from super-high quality?

Seems logical.

I never claimed to make perfect sense.
We could open up a thread discussing why we endure the pain of ownership, but I'm simply saying that I try not to buy stuff with other people's advertising emblazened on the item whether it be a gigantic Polo horse of a Liveridge spare tire cover.
Less is more.

Maybe the white insert is somewhat pointless, but it is specific to the Defender and would hide the fact that I have not painted my wolf spare black to match the rest!
