Spare Tire Cover for a 305/65R17 Tire


Im looking for a spare tire cover for 305/65r17 tire


Expert Reply:

Your 305/65R17 tire measures about 32-1/2 inches in diameter which puts you in a bit of a crossroads to choose a cover. You can go with a cover for up to a 32 inch tire, like part # RA773215, and it may fit but is likely going to be fairly tight. On the other hand a cover for a 33 to 35 inch tire, like part # RA773535, which will also likely fit but is going to be a little too big.

Personally, I believe going with a cover that is a little too large is better than one that is a little too small. If it's too small you have to stretch it over the tire and it may not last. If it's too big you can probably tuck it in in the back to keep it from billowing while you're driving. So I'd go with the # RA773535.
