steering wheel covers


Recommended Posts

Anybody using a steering wheel cover to help protect the leather? Is there one that's better than the rest?

 

I have one that "looks and feels like" black leather and it doesn't fully cover the wheel but does okay/enough coverage. It makes the steering wheel a little bit thicker and does good with the hot and cold weather. I don't feel I need a heated steering wheel. Matches the interior. It went on tight which is okay because it doesn't move. One piece with no additional work. I like the thicker steering wheel. I can't remember where I got mine but I like it a lot. Look in the auto stores for a good one. I don't like the very smooth or shiny ones. Try them out. Good luck.

'Seems akin to putting a plastic bag over your suit. The second owner will thank you.

Lol My last truck was a 1998 Z71 GMC & I took great care of it but never used a steering wheel cover & the leather steering wheel in it showed signs of wear. My brother had a 98 also but had a cover on his steering wheel & there was a big difference in the condition of his vs. mine.

15 dollar all black pleather looking from wal-mart does the trick.

I also have the Black Cover from Wal-Mart. The one I have has white stitching that looks pretty good. Does make the wheel a little thicker, but I like it.

Why not just use it without a cover? If it gets trashed after 10 years, buy another. My 225,000 mile GMT800 never had anything and it just looked slightly worn. The 6 year old GMT900 looks pretty decent, a little shiney is all.

I always try to take care of my new trucks. Guess I've always been like that. Got the truck 2-17-14 & only have 3800 miles on it now. Trying to get everything on to help protect it like I want before driving it much. Getting the front windows tinted to protect the interior from fading. Seat covers, bed rug, tonneau cover to protect the bed rug. Catch can for the engine. Weather tech floor liners. I'm not too worried about this truck being fast or tuning for more hp the 5.3 motor is very peppy just the 6 speed transmission lacks a little sometimes in the shifting . Just want to take care of it the best I can.

I like the thickness/softness (not hard shinny vinyl) and feel of a steering wheel with a good type of steering wheel cover on it. It also helps with the cold and hot days to the touch. I have big hands and do not like a skinny steering wheel.

That is a lot of money and a lot of work.

Yes, I spent 30-45 minutes putting one on a Ram that had a rubber steering wheel. It fit and felt excellent and never moved a bit. If I were going to get a cover again, I wouldn't get anything else.
