1930/31 metal sidemount covers

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a pair of metal sidemount covers for a 5.50/18 tire. Does anyone know if the are being reproduced? The covers I am looking for are something like a 2/3 circle motorcycle fender. Get the picture? Can anyone help?

I seriously doubt there is a reproduction of a 18" tire cover. The tooling is expensive. What kind of car is it going on. I have an early Auburn.

Can anyone produce pictures? I have tire covers that i don't know what they fit.

Here is the 1931 Dodge style....these are for 19", but are very tight, so they may fit 18" also. They are sort of "adjustable" to the tire size somewhat.

This is for the fender spare? If you have the covers around the tire, how does the padle tire holder hold down the spare without damaging the shield?

I have a 1930 DeSoto CK coupe (Canadian) with wire wheels and dual sidemounts. Canadian cars had 18" wheels with the wire spoke option. The covers I am looking for are like the ones on Kieser's 31 Dodge. The DeSoto has leather straps to hold the tire to the post. I though chrome covers over the treads would add a nice finishing touch. Maybe I'll just make vinyl covers with the "De" logo
