Tire cover too big, will it shrink?

Hey guys, I just recieved a new tire cover from All Things Jeep and thinking it's a tad big. My Jeep still has the 255/75/17 spare and the cover they recommend is a 33'' cover. Doesn't fit as tight as I like them to. Think this thing will grow,shrink or stay the same after a while? Not terrible but not great. I really don't know if a size smaller will go over the tire. What to do, what to do? Keep it or return it?

Sounds like a good excuse for bigger tires

Your tire Diameter is 32.1 Inches..... If its for a 33" tire I would just say live with it. I don't know what material it is made out of....... But canvas and or vinyl covers do contract and expand a little...

The Project is moving forward.

My spare is a little less than half worn out, you guys think a 31'' cover would fit ?

What's the actual tire size? Go out and measure it, there's your answer.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.
