SlideShare's CEO Rashmi Sinha says that the quality of leads is actually better because users who input their info are genuinely interested in the service or product.

Living in an area with drastic weather changes can take its toll on a car owner. You not only have to get a vehicle that can handle all of the different weather that you are faced with, but will more than likely also have to get several sets of tires to handle it as well. Instead of sitting those tires on the side of the house or burying them in the garage, spare tire covers would be a wise choice.
There are places all over that have snow on the road for just as long as they have people in shorts. Tires that will get you through this type of weather condition are not the best for when the

road is at its smoothest. In this case, there will probably be an entirely different set of tires going on the car once the spring thaw comes around.
When one set of tires goes off and the other comes on, what are you supposed to do to make sure that they do not get damaged over the next 6 months? The answer is to put them into spare wheel covers that will protect them from anything that could damage them. Don’t think that the spot in the corner of the garage is going to keep them out of danger for that amount of time.
Spare wheel covers are made to fit every tire that is out on the road. Once you have the diameter, you can get online and start clicking away to find the ones that you want. It would be wise to get something strong and sturdy for the garage, but if you are carrying your spare on the outside of the vehicle, getting one with a little character is not out of the question.
These tire covers are shipped directly to your home. You are not going to have to do anything but order them and patiently wait for them to be delivered. This makes the spare wheel covers not only nice to look, but convenient to get as well.
Whether you need to cover one wheel on your vehicle or you are looking to cover a complete set, you are going to have quite a variety to choose from. Get something that is a little fashionable for the car for the single tire and something more practical for the second set that is merely sitting in the garage.
