Measure your tire diameter and buy accordingly. I use canvas covers I bought off eBay for around 40 bucks shipped.

You can get a set of four for $8 if you have the 20% off coupon at Harbor Freight.

I am using these that I got through Amazon:

Easy to put on and remove and I'm happy with them. You need 2 sets to cover all 4 tires.

Looks like they are for 24" tires. A 15" trailer tire is around 28 inches in diameter.

Correct. They leave about a 3" gap to the parking surfaace.

I'd call the diameter like 3" too small. The tread wiidth of the tire is pretty much hidden anyway.

I'm using Adco Model 3922 that covers both wheels with a single cover for my 2005 Safari 25'FB purchased at Amazon. Get them in a light color to reflect the heat away from the tires.

I got the double ones too, but I got black. They look better and I'm not worried about heat ... just UV light.

Thanks!
-Give Camco, or Adco the size of your tires, and make a trade; your money for their covers.
-Propane tanks already have a substantial cover, don't waste your money.
-Do NOT cover your AC with cover for the winter.
The equipment needs to breath, or suffer corrosion of electronic relays and such. (Ask me How I know)
-On my FC, that was in storage at CanAm, the AC was not covered, and in the spring when I was washing it, discovered a birds nest, and two dead chicks.
So, I purchased some large mesh plastic door screen and had CanAm install the mesh inside the 'portholes' at the bottom of the shroud. We used clear RTV silicone sealant as an adhesive. (I'm unable to get up on the roof, and I like G.E. sealant)
-So far, no birds, and I'm watching to see if I need to install more 'round the smaller portholes higher up, to keep the bugs out.
No problems running the AC.

WHY are you looking at such small tires????
The F.C. uses 235/75R15s.
