Tire Cover Size?

Hi, everybody. Has anyone bought tire covers for their Sunseeker 3010DS with tires size 225/75R16? The tires measure 29 inches across and the sizes of the Adco TyreGards run 27 to 29 and then 30 to 32. Wondering if I should buy the next size up to avoid fighting with them, or if that size will flap around too much in the wind. Thanks!

Get one size larger for your front wheels because of the wheel cover

Thanks...good idea. Wish they came in pairs instead of sets of four. Will probably go with the bigger size for all. If she comes out of the repair shop. Again.

Never seen a reason to use tire covers they really serve no purpose unless your parking for very long periods and don't wash your tire every 3 months or so or to keep rain from splashing dirt on your tires

I am given to understand that they are for UV protection, are they not?

Goodyear rep told me that driving 20 to 25 miles every couple of months would keep the rubber in good shape as long as you used some soap and water on them also every couple of months also no need to cover if you just did this small amount of maintaince

Thanks, Boso...that's interesting, and worth considering. It would be less work (not to mention money) to not cover them, but I hesitate to take maintenance advice from somebody who makes money if I buy new ones. Kind of the "oil change guy says 3 months/3k miles but dealer says 5 months/5k miles" thing...one wants to sell you an oil change and the other wants to sell you a new car. Low level of trust, I guess, especially now that my brand-new rig is back in for repairs for a second time since MDW.

I have never used them and you don't see cars covered up and yes I know rv tires last longer than cars do because of miles but I have never seen a tire that was less than 5 years from manufacture date crack that same rep also told me the tires would last longer than the 5 years recommended if they were maintained

That's a good point...my cars live in the garage but, then again, my RV is inside all winter, too. Going to think long and hard before I pop $50 on tire covers. Thanks for the advice...certainly sounds reasonable to me!
