    Does anyone use wheel/tyre covers on the wheels when their MH is not being used?
    After all the rain that we have hadn't recently, the discs tend to get all rusty where the wind blows all the wet onto the discs etc.
    If so, any recommendations where to get some.
    Thanks.

    Would that make a difference? I park my car up on a dry day and not use it for a week or so and it has rust on the disks. Almost all my motorbikes have did this also. Covering them would that not just create condensation?

    Do not use covers, just keeps the damp IN!

    All discs get a very slight rusting, within minutes of parking up.
    First touch of the stop pedal clears it.

    The wheel covers are primarily fitted to stop the UV degradation of the compounds that make up the tyres chemistry.
