Paddock Spares Wheel cover

Their spare wheel cover seems good value, particularly the one with their name on it at £20. The unbranded version is £28.

Is it good value or cheap rubbish?

United Kingdom 1994 Defender 110 300 Tdi CSW Buckingham Blue

I've had one on my double cab for about 8 years and another on my csw for around 6, held up very well, the plastic part fades with age but that doesn't take much to put right. Overall very pleased with them, especially for the price Thumbs Up

I brought one and it doesn't fit a 265 75 16 properly, it was also kinked in the plastic disc when it arrived, you get what you pay for.

It would probably fit a 235 85 16 okay 1993 200 Tdi 90 CSW

United Kingdom 2005 Defender 90 Td5 CSW Tonga Green

As above, it's a struggle to find wheel covers that will fit over a 265/75/16. I have the genuine LR moulded plastic one with 'Defender' across the middle. I can just about make it fit with lots of struggling with the elasticated 'skirt', but it leaves the bottom rear edge of the tyre visible. The moulded plastic 'disc' bit just isn't quite big enough to fit over the shoulder of the tyre. This is particularly the case with BFG AT's, as they have such prominent shoulder blocks and a very square shoulder.

But as Kit says, if you have standard 235s, you shouldn't have a problem with fit. 2005 Td5 | 90 County Station Wagon | Tonga Green

Should have said in my earlier post, they are both 235 85 16 and fit fine. Not experienced them with other sizes

Wales 2007 Defender 90 Other CSW Willow Green

Had one for years and looks as good today as when new, just the odd polish now and again with black wax keeps the colour. For those who like Welsh Mountains and narrow boats have a look at my videos and photos at..

Thanks for the replies, it's for a Goodyear wrangler 235/85 16 so should be ok. Current Steeds:

I have one for mine too, 235 MTRs. Very slightly loose fit but I think excellent value for money!, you could buy a lot of them for the price of the genuine part - comes packed in a huge box (thankfully not a plain blue one though! Laughing )......probably cost you the best part of £10 if you had to send it yourself. MY15.5 110XS CSW
