Custom Tire Cover

Got my new custom tire cover in the mail today! It was a bit of a wait but I'm happy with it. I know there are many of you that go au naturale, but figured some people would enjoy it anyways.

Thanks! I designed it with my art director here at RN. I had our tire cover supplier make it as a one off. Depending on how well it's received we have considered selling them regularly at our standard prices, so $69.50.

We have always sold the two sizes, standard which is around 29", and large which is around 31-33". All the Land Rover branded covers are here: http://landroverparts.roversnorth.co...de=569&key=cat

I have a large and on my 265's (32") tires, it seems taught. Not sure it would make the 33"s....do they fit the 285/65/16 size? (don't have the new truck to try out).

The cover is from you guys..nice cover - and it has held up well. Just a big green oval.

Roll your Rover and you need Keep Calm and Turn me over.

PS you definietly need to accomodate the 255/85-16 crowd with these.

285 / 65 /r16 is only a 30.59" tire, so yes they will definitely fit.

I do hope to offer it as it's a design the art director and I made, but we must obey LRNA and their wishes.

If they are a sales motivated company, they'll go with it.

It is absolutely tasteful too.

Good luck.

Keep calm was a reference from the British in 1939, the chive is a website started in 2008 to I believe share photos. I believe Chive had a big part of the resurgence of the keep calm slogan.
