Was looking at my ratty spare tire cover and though a jetboaters one would be nice. Cam.

----- I am hijacking the first post to add info on the order, Bruce

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Spare tire covers can be ordered at any time now. The cost is $50 shipped. They arrive in about a week. The order form is at https://jetboaters.net/forms/jetboaters-net-spare-tire-cover-order-form.5/respond

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The manufacturer is allowing small orders now. If you would like to order please post your interest in the thread and I will get it moving. Delivery time is about a week.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The second order will be placed March 16th.

For this round http://www.TireCoverCentral.com is going to ship the covers directly. Hopefully they will have less issues with lost and crushed packages than I did. The cost per cover will be $50 including shipping to US addresses. I will place the order on the 16th giving anyone else that wants one a week to order. They expect to ship the covers before the 20th. I will start a conversation with you guys with payment info.

----------------------------------------------------------------

I have approved the artwork and paid for the production.

http://www.TireCoverCentral.com is producing the covers.

They describe the benefits of their covers as

~ All products come with a one year warranty!
~ Our covers are made from rugged marine grade vinyl. Not The Cheap Stuff! Marine grade vinyl is the same stuff used to make boat seats!
~ All images are printed using top of the line UV resistant solvent inks that actually etch into the vinyl. This means the image will not flake off like air brushed or painted tire covers. Our inks are rated up to five years!
~ Our tire covers are secured with a 90 test pound rope that can be pulled as tightly as needed to obtain the desired fit. We don't use elastic cords that stretch and let air under your cover that will blow your tire cover off of the tire when traveling on the highway.
~ Every tire cover comes with a free set of locking security grommets installed and a heavy duty locking zip tie to help prevent theft.

The good news is that by ordering in bulk we will get them for $50 each shipped compared to their pricing of $154 for a custom cover or $60 for one of their designs.

The bad news is that their production schedule is full so they say "I will have them shipped out next week. Most likely Thursday or Friday."

As soon as I receive them I will find a suitable shipping container and start shipping them out to you.

I have posted the approved proofs below.

Thanks



This is my list of color choices

Count me in for one if they aren't completely unreasonable. Hope my dealer doesn't take it the wrong way since I already have a spare tire cover. :)

I think this is a good idea too! I have thought about several products that are needed like a spare tire cover that could be adorned with the logo and name!

I was thinking less than 100$ if it were a quality cover. My cover is pretty good as it is, but I was just told by the executive princess that I cannot put a JB.net sticker on the glass of her escalade, so I need some signage closer to the bow now ;-).

I have never understood why spare tire covers are so expensive. It doesn't seem to me that they use that much material. Hopefully we can find something affordable that will look great too.

@Julian Hopefully if we buy in bulk they should drop the price does anyone know of a place where they custom make those covers for fire pits golf carts ? It's the same material .

The other option is to just buy a bunch of blank ones and apply our logo to them.....I assume for a logo like ours they are probably just screen printing it??

I think that's probably the way to go because there will be many different color requests.

I'm getting closer on discussions with one of the online vendors....give me a little time to work this up as I think we can come up with an attractive price for this. My Uncle passed away and work is chaotic right now....so I can't commit to a date....and Shelbyville is coming up, and I have a 2 business trips in the next week!! AHHHH

But I am CERTAIN this company will have a price that would be acceptable (I'm shooting for $59.99 plus shipping)....would that work? I will likely need to get a committed # to pull that off.....so if that sounds good....(assuming it will look nice)....post up!

I had some made to put on every boat that we sell since most people hate dealer decals on either the boat or trailer. I thought this would be a good idea both as a value to the customer and a cool way to get out logo out their.

I believe they are under $50 a cover including shipping. 20131121_130742.jpg
