Default Spare tire covers

I'm looking for a vinyl or leather spare tire cover for my 35 wire wheel and tire. Preferably with the Ford monogram. Does anyone know where to purchase one.? thanks, Mike

I got mine for my '34 (17 inch wheel) from Summit Racing > https://www.summitracing.com/search?...0tire%20covers


I got a plain black cover and bought a V8 Decal on eBay to stick on it > https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-For...MAAOSwRgJXlWoz



Be sure you make an accurate measurement of the overall diameter of the inflated tire on wheel....

Check with the Model A parts suppliers. They usually have them. Also check e-Bay. You'll find plain covers and you can sew on your own patch.

As TJ said the Model A suppliers sell them but I think that it may be difficult to find one for a 17'.
You might try calling Bert's Model A Center, 800 321-1931 they carry several sizes (no 17") but you may be able to get some dimensions from them to help? Chap

If you want something unique check e-Bay item #123740755338. There are all sorts of plain covers on e-Bay and you could buy an embroidered Ford patch and sew it on.

Purely in the interest of correctness and so other don't read this post and take it as "fact"....USA produced 35's had 16" wires.....with one "exception" in that "European" 35's DID use 17". With all due respect!!!
