Majority of us do not carry the OEM spare tire in the trunk, and because of that you have probably lost or threw away the cardboard cover.
Even if you have the cover, it will not work without the spare tire as it sags without any support from the tire below it.
For those that have the trunk panels and still have the oem carpet in there, we have a solution to keep the carpet and improve the overall look of the trunk.
We designed a spare tire trunk cover out of 1/8" thick 6061 aluminum so that you don't have to worry about corrosion without adding much weight.
The cover serves as storage lid with a hinge, so that you can put unsightly items hidden under the aluminum panel.
The cover can be removed by simply using the Quik-Latch fastener. Just a single press of the latch, and the cover can be freed or put back in place.
Our spare tire cover comes with stainless steel machined spacer mount, which we incorporate a Quik-Latch system and is also height adjustable.
For those of you that do not have carpet the cover has two Neodymium Magnets integrated into the soft rubber trim to keep it from popping open.
Please note that as the panel is very wide to cover the entire spare tire opening, so we do not recommend throwing a 17" or 18" wheel, or a heavy steel jack on top of it as it cannot support the weight.
This fits 1995-1998 240sx.
