Shade type tire covers

I have seen several units that have their tires covered with what looks like a window shade that hooks some how into the inner wheel well and hangs down to cover the tire and wheel. Does anyone know where one can buy these type of wheel/tire covers? Does anyone have these type of covers? How well do they work?

Sir,
I think, if you search for "MCD Shades", that it's possible they make the style/type of wheel cover's you're speaking up. It's been a while since I've been on their site but, I seem to recall, that along with window coverings, they also make tire/wheel covers.

Looks like there are two ways these things secure to your rig; snaps or twist locks. I'm sure there are probably others, but here are a few links for you to check out:

Recreational Vehicle Windshield Covers, RV Windshield Covers, RV Sun Shades, RV Side Window Shades, RV Tire Covers

Sunpro Tire Saver Covers

Sunshades, tire covers, wheel covers

Wheel Covers

Before we built the RV garage I had some made. I used shade cloth I purchased on Ebay. I attached to the coach using suction cups. I used a fiberglass pipe (1.25" diameter) in a bottom "pocket" for weight. They worked well and were very inexpensive.
The attached picture shows the "shades".
