Spare tire covers?

Is there a source out there for something other than the same old choices of spare tire covers? By unusual I mean imagine an image of Hendrix or a Fender Strat...something different. Thank you

Don't know...I have never actually had to pay for one. I do know by being the expert, that the materials are not cheap. You might get lucky and if you provide the tire cover it could be less than $100. I know this one cost more than that...(not counting man hours). That is why we always use "scrap" materials, and work on "training" projects... This one actually took us a couple of hours to do...some kinks in the system

Chances are.......if the lettering on the tire cover is made from adhesive vinyl, the adhesive wont hold up long without curling around the edges, especially on a black cover. If it is a slick/ glossy cover, it will hold up longer, but tire covers are usually screen printed to get good durability. I own a sign shop and have been making signs and graphics for 17 years, so I speak from knowledge.

In any event, I would have charged $75 for the lettering if you provided the cover.

Cool, you use Gerber brand supplies...I was a little hesistant about using vinyl for mine, The entire cover, including the logo are vinyl. Used the Gerber Maxx to print it all out on gloss white vinyl. It has been on there for 3 years non stop, and I have yet to see the vinly curl...
