Accelerated rubber breakdown, which is commonly seen on tires as cracking and dry rot, will affect your spare tire even though it remains stationary on the back of your vehicle or trailer until you need it. The rubber of most tires contains protective waxes that are released to the surface when you drive on it. Because you're not using your spare, it's more vulnerable to damage caused by exposure to UV rays and ozone. In short, your spare tire will wear out even if its rubber has never met the pavement. A spare tire cover is one way you can combat this form of wear.

Extend the life of your trailer's spare tire by protecting it from the sun, dirt, grime, and road salt with this weather-resistant vinyl cover. Elastic-trimmed rear opening gives a snug fit and the vented bottom lets moisture escape.


The cover itself is nice, of a good material. I tried to buy it as close to the tire size as possible so it wouldn’t come off. I am using it over a spare tire on the front of an open utility trailer. When it was new I could just barely get it pulled over the new spare tire, so it definitely wasn’t too big. It stayed on with no issues for several months. But over time it has loosened up and now tries to come off (sometimes does come off) when I’m using the trailer. There isn’t a way to secure it with a bungee cord or something without ripping through the fabric. So, it’s a good cover for static use or maybe on the back of an RV where it doesn’t see direct wind, but on an open trailer it’s not the best choice.


The cover fit my trailer spare 205 75R 15 perfectly and looks way better than the old cracked one. It covers a good amount of the back of the tire. I was concerned about the fit since the box said it was for 14 inch wheels but it fit my 15 inch great. Go by the measurements of the tire!


Easily fit my spare tire.


Like some other reviewers, I was concerned about the spare tire cover being advertised for a 14 inch tire. The 27" x 8 1/2" fits a 15 inch tire perfectly. It took a few minutes to put on but once you get the inner elastic over the tire it is much easier. I have no concern it will stay on the tire at any speed. I rated it a 4 only because I just now put it on, but I do expect great results. The material seems to be substantial for the purpose.


perfect fit. covers well I would recommend it.



works great. its been in the sun the whole time still hasnt cracked.


Bought one for my flatbed trailer and one for my classic K15 pickup, bed mount. No issues so far. Thank You


The shipment arrived quickly and the quality appears to be good and consistent with other reviews that I read prior to ordering. I bought this cover and size based on the recommendation from the company. It is for a flatbed, trailer mounted spare tire. Once I finally got it on the tire (205x75Rx15) it was very snug, but it did fit. I would like to see it cover more of the inside of the tire, but a large one my come loose while traveling. Seems to be fairly durable and does have an opening at the bottom for drainage. Overall, I'm satisfied. (Due to the product coming from China, I did leave it outside for a couple of days, because of the Coronavirus issues)



The cover is holding up very well, considering its been outside in the weather for a year. Very pleased with the quality and price.


Perfect fit!


Great products/communication and easy installation.


Second time ordering from etrailer everything great exactly what I ordered and on time


Ordered some items for the new trailer. One item needed to come from a manufacturer and would take additional time. called me the day I placed the order to make sure that was OK with the delayed item and shipped the rest of my order out that day since I was crunched for time. I very much appreciated the communication and support. *****
Thank You,

everything was as I ordered it and I was very satisfied


Was scared when I opened the box and it said for a 14 inch tire. I ordered it by the diameter and width and it was going on a 15 inch tire.. It fit perfect, maybe to perfect, very tight. But this will make it better in the wind. I am sure it will be easy to take off if I ever need to. Will be upset and have all the strength I need because to the flat. Great quality.

great, sits in the garage most of the time


The product #'s are CE27430 & A35W42B. I ordered a tire cover and a 35' trailer wiring kit (which I could not find anywhere else). Both products were high in quality and worked great. I have a 28' boat trailer and could not find the wiring kit anywhere else. This kit enabled me to make only connections at the lights in back of the trailer, I coiled up the rest and was able to put it in the 4" tubing in the tongue of the trailer. The personel etrailer are great. I will tell all my friends about etrailer. Keep up the great work


While the tire cover fit perfectly, my spare tire is mounted upright near the front of the trailer on the "A" frame of the hitch. While traveling on the freeway, the elastic wasn't strong enough to hold the tire cover on and it came off while driving from the wind, tearing it up


Perfect snug fit.


I would like to give the trailer cover a good review but it is still in the box, we really bought it without thinking, because our trailer will be going south every winter so we don’t have a use for it. And I’m sure we can’t return it.

It is always a good idea to keep your trailers spare tire covered - especially in sunny weather like in the southern USA. UV rays cause trailer tires to break down and dry rot. More often trailer tires need replaced due to sun damage than wear and tear from highways.


So far everything is great I installed it on the trailer quick and easy if I had to buy another one I would do it in a heartbeat thanks again ??


overpriced Firstly, I will say that I have purchased several items from etrailer over the years (hitches, car top racks, etc.) and generally been quite pleased with the products and associated service. I was therefore surprised when I received the spare tire cover for my son's car and saw that it was made from what seems to be quite thin material. This is not a cheap spare tire cover, and as such was expected to be a bit more robust in construction. I will see how it fits when he is back from college in a week or so, and decide then if I will return it.


It fit perfectly. Not a person who enjoys reading instructions but there were some simple instructions that made look better. My old cover was torn and now my trailer is looking good again.



Still looking brand new even in the heavy rains and intense Hawaiian sun.


Product quality appears to be good enough to justify higher price. It will go on spare tire of pop-up trailer, so I will cut a round hole in the center for the lift crank, reinforced by round stick-on patches (with holes in the centers) applied to front and back. Could not find a spare tire cover designed for the pop-up market! Original equipment had a zipper.


excellent form fit and function of this spare tire cover, and easy installation

the cover is still holding up in the south Florida sun.


Needed a cover for the spare on my trailer. This cover has been able to handle the winter snow, rain and cold with NO problem. I had to pull the cover off when it was 3 above 0 and it was easy to remove. Great cover for the money


Purchased this to cover the spare 205/75R15 on my trailer - it does fit this size, but it is SNUG to get on.

Which I think is good, because it doesn't show any signs of wanting to come off.

Otherwise, performs as I would expect. The drain flap at the bottom is a nice touch. Does not cover quite as much of the sidewall on the inside as I might like, but overall does the job.


Fit my 15" trailer spare tire perfectly, good quality.

Getting a little sun faded, but so far no tears or rips.


3rd order in 3 weeks and all have come quickly and we're correct; haven't put the spare tire cover on yet but should be as described; the fan motor in the order was simple to install and worked well; somewhat concerned with a single screw mounting set up opposed to the two screw mounting of the older motor that was removed but it seemed to mount snugly enough; time will tell; the replacement fan blade presses right on and worked well.

  • Would the CE Smith Tire Cover part # CE27430 Fit a 205/75-14 Tire Size
    When you calculate the diameter of your tire size you end up with 26.1 inches in diameter which would work well with the CE Smith tire cover part # CE27430. Now there can be some variance with tire brands on the actual size as well as when you consider tire wear. Using a tape measure to measure the overall diameter will also tell you exactly what you have. Either way this cover would still fit and work well. It may end up a bit loose, but should still fit just fine.

  • Could a Tire Cover Be Used on a Tire Mounted to a Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-1
    A tire cover would install pretty easily on a wheel and tire mounted to the Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-1. It would basically just slip right over the tire. For example, if you had a 27 inch tall tire and had the CE Smith Tire Cover part # CE27430 it would just slip over the tire. Check out the picture I attached to see how it would install.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Cover for Boat Trailer with 26 Inch Diameter Tire
    The CE Smith Spare Tire Cover part # CE27430 would be an excellent option for your boat trailer and is one of the few tire covers that have a vented bottom to allow moisture to escape which will be important for a boat trailer that is frequently subjected to moisture. In regards to the mounting orientation of your spare tire, I would place a prop inside the cover to form a tent that way you do not have to worry about water pooling in the center.

  • Spare Tire Cover Recommendation for Tire Size 205/75-14
    A 205/75-14 tire is approximately 26.3 inches tall so for a cover I'd recommend the Adco Ultra Tyre Gard part number # 290-3953 which is the size for 27 to 29 inch diameter tires and wheels. These covers are easy to install, will fit well, and will last a long time so they will work really well for you.

  • Tire Recommendation for Long Distance Travel on a Boat Trailer
    For a good long distance travel tire, I would recommend getting Radial Tires. I suggest you go to the 215 width because it will give you a higher load rating of D and a slightly wider tire for better ground contact. The 215 width will fit on the same wheel as the 205 and the size difference between the two is not so big a jump as to cause any concern regarding clearance. The tires I'd recommend for your boat trailer are the Provider ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire, # TTWTRTM2157514D....
