G-Wagen Spare Wheel Cover
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Dec 2015
This was pretty simple to put together and looks great once installed. The pictures could have been a little better with showing have it should look after you install the basic components, but a quick google search will help you find some.
Looks great and functional too

Took me less then 15 minutes to put it together and install.
Installation of larger tires on your G-wagen is usually one of the first off road modifications. However, the original spare wheel cover will not fit after larger tires are fitted. Since the Mercedes trucks have their spare wheel mounted with the outer facing in (this is to avoid cantelevering wheel weight on the bracket out too far) leaves the unsightly backside of the wheel outward and visible. The solution is the VTS Spare Wheel Cover which neatly covers the wheel only and at the same time provides a nice storage space for items such as recovery equipment, oil cans, offroad trash bags like the Trasharoo.
All aluminum spare wheel cover for standard or oversized off-road tires featuring a lockable compartment for your items like tow straps, jumper cable, tools, oil container or whatever you like to store.
