    Default Group Buy Feeler - GLFWDA tire cover

    Recently we have been trying to expand our visibility in a number of ways - new event banners are on order, new store goodies are available, and some brand new items are in the pipeline.

    Pat K (Ironman) found a source for custom tire covers, and after calling them Friday I was surprised to learn that they are reasonably priced IF we buy in quantities of at least 25. Tire covers would be full-color screen printed (with the GLFWDA logo) like the ones commonly seen from Jeep dealerships, so they would last a while without fading. We can mix and match sizes to get to the minimum 25 order.

    If you could get one for somewhere in the $40-$45 range, would you be interested?

    I would be interested in one for the motorhome but not sure the wife would go along. haha That's the only place I could use one. And it's for about a 35" tire.

    Would they have just the logo, or could we get "Support the Sport" on them, too?

    I'd buy one...maybe two.

    Quality is a big issue with me though...the desert eats up fabrics very fast. Things like vinyl, cotton and/or gortex don't tend to last very long. But I'd still buy them and only use them when I'm out on the trail for 'advertising'. I know that sounds backwards (that's usually where people take them off!) but daily driving with it would kill the poor thing out here.

    We could do the logo, the slogan, or a combination as long as it is a single design. Since we are buying direct from the manufacturer, we would have to pick one design for each run of 25. Once we have done a run with a particular design, the cost per unit comes down a bit on subsequent orders. But for them to give us this kind of price, they need to set up the equipment and run a bunch for it to be cost effective. They can do one-offs if you want less than 25, but they get $129.95 for those.

    I'll check on size availability Monday morning.

    Jim, our motorhome tires are 32" which fit perectly with the tire cover I just bought that says "Life Is Good"

    I would buy one for the Jeep's spare, it is a 34" so yes I am interested if sizes can be accomodated.
