Has anyone had any experience with the doudle axle tire covers vs the single tire covers, are they difficult to put on? I'm a little concerned about what size to order since I don't think that axle spacing is standard.

I have had both. I would assume you could use the measurement across both tires, including the space. They come with a bungee to run through a grommet behind the tire. I put one on and the grommet ripped right through. Sent is back to CW for a replacement. I do not use the grommets/bungee now and it is OK unless it is very windy. I can see the camper, but if it was in storage, I would probably use the bungees.

I have single covers now that need to be replaced and I was considering getting the double tire covers.

The cheap onesCW sells won't last more than a couple of years in the Texas sun during the Summer. I even spray them with 303 every couple of months.

I use the singles and while in storage put the bungee behind the tires. However, when traveling I just put the bungee around the shock yoke. After two years they are starting to crack but still hide the tires from UV's and the weather.

I use the single tire covers, they are canvas, not vinyl, so they wont crack.I got them 4 in a package from Harbor Freight for around $13.00, and thats for the 4 pack not just one or two.



They hold on with a spring type wire on the back of them and they fit perfectly on my 15" tires. My neighbor has used them same kind for a few years now and has not had 1 fly off from high winds and being by the lake we get some pretty strong gusts.

Brian, I checked those out and they probably would hold up better down here where we get a lot of hot sun in the Summer. Problem is I have not been able to find them that would fit my 16" tires which measure 31" across. I will continue to look though.
