Simple Troubleshooting Tips for Your Suzuki XL-7 Spare Tire Cover
Getting your SUV stuck in the middle of the road with a flat tire is definitely one of your nightmares as a driver. It takes a lot of time and effort to have your flat tire vulcanized, unless you always bring a spare tire with you. Thanks to your spare tire cover that keeps your spare tire in good condition. If the cover gets torn or worn-out, the tire is at risk of damage as well. We suggest that you take these tips on how to diagnose if your Suzuki XL-7 spare tire cover is still fit for its job:
Cover won't fit on the tire
You recently bought a spare tire cover for your Suzuki XL-7, and upon installation, you realized that it is too small or too big for the tire. Well, it seems like you made a mistake in choosing the right spare tire cover size for your tire. You should know the diameter of your tire to be able to find the right size of the cover. Look at the side of your spare tire and find the code or size that is usually in alpha-numeric symbols. They are your tire and rim sizes. Ask the manufacturer to replace your spare tire cover with the one that is based on the details you found on your tire.
Tire cover falls off
So you are worried that your spare tire doesn't get much protection because the cover almost always falls off? Check it for signs of wear and tear that might be causing it to get misplaced from the tire. A quick fix could be done by installing locking security grommets or a heavy-duty locking zip tie to ensure that your spare tire cover will stay in place. But if your current spare tire cover is already worn-out, you can buy a new one that comes with those features. With a new spare tire cover, you are sure that your spare tire will be in its best condition once the need to replace your tire arises.
Torn spare tire cover
If your spare tire cover is obviously old and wrecked that you can see your tire from the outside, then do not hesitate to buy a replacement. We do not recommend that you keep it since it will compromise your tire's condition. Debris and water could get in your spare tire and cause it to wear out. Take time to clean your spare tire cover to keep it from wearing out.
