You forgot Asians. But I'm sure the 1% over at EE would object to that as well.

I'm sure this thread has already made it on the EE forum. I can only imagine what they would have to say about a $35 tire cover.

I thought rover dealerships put those tire covers on Discos to cover up that shitty steel wheel, who doesnt have a matching spare and not rotate it in?

Great now I just went on the EE forum to waste time. You want to talk elitism. I got nothing on those guys.

I love that their message board is locked. So elite I can't even apply.

Now can we get back on topic and discuss the benefits of using a hefty trash bag as a tire cover.

Bump to the top for a great product. Don't let the sun ruin your spare tire. I've included a picture of my truck to show my shame. Look how my spare doesn't match. I would get a cover but thats like condom for a dick I will never use.

You realize you just killed 3 people from expedition portal by posting a truck without a matching spare.

So here are some answers from the manufacturer...

1. Durability and quality is excellent, this same company produced all the US Dealer tire covers that had the dealerships name printed for any LR with spare. You still see some of those around today.

2. They are cinched down by a bungee

3. The logo is screen printed just like the LR tire covers you've seen from dealers

4. YES they will do size 35" for those asking. Their 32" cover actually works for the 33 tire.

Right now we are at 16 total, need 24 to make this happen. Any of you running 33s want to jump on now?
