Tire Covers Needed for Tire Size 8.75/16.5

Question:

I have 7 tires 6-875R16.5 and the spare. The rear wheels are duals. I think I need 5 covers but am not sure the size of the cover I need. Can you help?

Expert Reply:

Your 8.75/16.5 size tires have a diameter of 30.85". This will help us determine what size wheel cover you need.

It sounds like you either have a triple axle trailer with the rear axles closer or you have a dual axle with dual wheels on the rear axle. For the first setup I recommend using both the double axle cover # 290-3922 and the single axle cover # 290-3952. If you only have two axles then they should be close enough to use the double axle cover. If they aren't side by side then you need to use the single covers.

For a dual wheel setup you won't need to worry about having a cover over the innermost wheels. A tire cover helps to mainly protect against harmful UV rays but also helps with the elements. Since the innermost wheels won't be exposed to UV rays or the elements nearly as much as the outer wheels you don't need a cover for them.

If your spare tire is exposed to the elements and you would like a white cover for it then we do have the part # 052963751703 that you can use.
