If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’ve gotten a flat tire while out driving, you may have had to search around in the trunk of your car for a spare tire. With the emergency supplies and other materials we keep in our car trunks, having to dig out a spare can be a frustrating process. Having a mounted spare tire on the back of your car can save you some of this frustration by making the tire changing process quicker and easier. However, did you also know that covering that spare tire has many benefits as well? Custom made tire covers are a great way to protect your spare tire so you can be prepared in the event of an emergency.
Custom made tire covers are typically cloth or a hard casing, and unlike storing a spare tire in the trunk, these custom tire covers make spare tires easily accessible in the event of a flat tire or other issue such as a puncture in your vehicle’s tires. By keeping a spare tire plus other tools in your car, you can avert a crisis easily if you’re on the road. Additionally, spare tire covers will also protect your spare from harmful UV rays, which can damage or warp the tire due to exposure to the sun.
There’s plenty you can do to prevent having to need a spare tire. For instance, keeping your tires inflated to their recommended pressure will lessen the chances of a flat. (For most automobiles, the recommended PSI is usually around 30.) Additionally, getting regular tire rotations allows the tire treads to wear evenly, so this way each of your tires will get the most use possible. Sometimes, though, these precautions aren’t enough, and emergencies such as flat tires can interrupt both short and long car trips alike. Having custom made tire covers for your car’s spare tire will make these emergencies as stress-free as possible by allowing you to get on the road again quickly and easily.
