Anyone know where I can get a spare wheel cove to fit over a 285 x75 x 16 wheel ???

The size is 32.8'' or 834 mm.

Seems to me that no one makes them that big.
But I know someone out there will know of a supplier.

Hi Charles

I have found a firm that will make some up to the required size but need a order of say 10 to make it cost effective.

Anyone else want one. ??

Could they do them with our logo on?

I am in the process of ordering one of these from SA:

10049-garbage_bag_expanded.jpg


10049-garbage_bag_ready_for_use.jpg


has space for a rubbish bin, and a pocket for a braai (BBQ)grid .

They did these with logo's for the Land Cruiser Club of SA. They do plain canvas ones too... if anyone is interested!

I like the look of the SA one, always thought it would be very handy to have an external bag on the car when overlanding for tow ropes shackles etc. Save having to get into the car when stuck. I would be up for one of those if we wanted to put a little group buy together

Dustbin Wheel Cover with space for braai grid (Cover half of Wheel) R410.40 (£36.20)
Solid Dustbin Wheel Cover with space for braai grid (Cover entire Wheel) R410.40 (£36.20)

current exchange rate is R11.3/£1 ...

Thanks for the quick response, Prices look V Good
Not sure about the full wheel or the half wheel, which one are you going for?
Did you ask if they do them in the Charcoal colour they are doing the seat covers in?
Perhaps we could get them to embroider a subtle www.landcruiserclub.net on the bag bit
Looks great

Prices look great, but as Mal says, will they cover a 285/75/16.
Certainly up for a Solid Dustbin Wheel Cover if they would fit.

I will definitely go for a full wheel cover with pocket for a rubbish bag. Do those prices include the discount?

I think I prefer the full wheel cover. Didnt ask about the colour, but I will email them. I agree, a logo will look good embroidered somewhere. If you see the 1st picture of Louis Kruger's trip report on this forum, you will see the LCCSA logo they stitched on. Looks good. I think that increased the price by £10 though.

No, thats before discount. I'm not sure what quantity qualifies as a 'bulk order' but once we have some figures I will check with them.

Certain they will fit the 285/75/16. A member on LCCSA had one on that size. Will get confirmation though.. :D :D

Thanks chap, from what was a straight forward purchase for you, now with more people onboard it might be getting a little more tricky.
I think £10 ish for the logo won't be a deal breaker for me
If I can doing anything to help let me know

Yeh me to please

A full cover with logo please.

Where do I send the money

A Charcoal colour would be better for me as well.

Do we have a Logo yet ?

No worries Julian ;)

Ok, I will check they do them in the charcoal colour. Sure they would, as I think they make these up to order.

Once I have a final figure I will get them to give a quote on postage. My folks who live in SA are busy deciding when they will be coming to the UK for a visit. If timings work out I will ask them to bring them over - save a packet in postage.

Chaps, how long should we wait for numbers before we proceed?

Names I have so far:
Mal, Les, Julian, Chas & me.

Is everyone after 285/75/16?

cheers for now

Kevin
