Eagle eyes in the back of your head won't help you see clearly down life's road but an animal's face on a spare wheel cover is the pet peeve of many a following driver.

The Top 10 Pet & Animal Spare Tire Covers

 

1) All Hail Hypnocat

And all avoid riding with whoever's unlucky enough to follow this Jeep. Seriously folks, hypnotism's great if you want to quit smoking but fall under Mrs. Chiggers' hypnotic stare mid-commute and YOU'LL be the one going up in flames.

2) Wearin' A Grin

This spare wheel cover and its sun-faded mascot displays what must be many years of wear and tear. Then again, it's from southern Australia so, like maybe a month or so. Either way, you gotta appreciate this pleased pooch's ability to Keep On Smilin' through thick, thin and the myriad terrors of the Outback. (image via Michael Coghlan)                    

 

3) Amphibious Vehicle

You can always count on this trailer-towing driver to, pardon the pun, toad de line and stay in his lane. Indeed, it doesn't take a leap of faith to see there are no warts on this expertly restored 1984 Perris Pacer... and that includes its artful spare wheel cover.

4) Shake, Rattler & Roll

If the Continental Marines drove trucks, they'd probably look a lot like this one... because Continentals of the Lincoln variety lost their spare tire bulges years ago. That said, displaying this spare wheel cover could arouse the curiosity of your local DOT inspector. Just sayin'. (image via Ragtime Cowboy Jim                

 

5) Spare Bear

“Haguma is the most fierce wild animal in Hokkaido”... and dude, HE'S RIGHT BEHIND YOU! According to the fine print on this Japanophile spare wheel cover, this fierce-some creature can be frightened off by the sound of a bell. Presumably, not a dinner bell.

6) Drools Of The Road

Run out of windshield washer fluid again? No problem, just start tailgating this driver and let their spare wheel cover mascot do the rest. Word of warning to Ford Pinto drivers: dirty windshield or not, you don't want to repeat what happened the last time you were this close to Cujo. (image via John Ellis)                 

 

7) Froggy Conditions

On your way to the Rainforest cafe or maybe you just work there? We've got you covered... or at least, we've got your spare wheel covered. Don't try stealing this cover, by the way, that just might be a poison dart frog. (image via Timothy Valentine                    

 

8) Three Horse Power

Wild horses couldn't drag me away but three... yes, THREE stallions on the back of an SUV? It's like Hasta la Vista, Baby, to the third power! Three Wolf Moon? Fuhgeddaboudit! When a trio of equine stallion-ness has got your back, you'll never have to ask hoof hearted. (image via Phil and Jo Schiffbauer)           

 

9) Jeep Thrills

So, Jeep-drivers, what's your spirit animal? A “Jeep”, of course, and Eugene the Jeep in particular! This mysterious, magical and mythical creature first appeared in Popeye comic strips way back in March of 1936 – about five years before the eponymous all-terrain vehicle made it's first appearance on a WW2 battlefield. The copyright war between Fleischer Studios and Chrysler must've been epic. (image via geepstir                     

 

10) Monkey's Uncool

OK, when we say “animals on spare wheel covers”, we didn't expect to find an animal ON a spare wheel cover but here we are. And there IT is. You can take it from us, that spare wheel cover boasts an abundance of good taste. Sorry driver, that mooching monkey only wants spare wheel covers that taste good. (image via Matty Ring
