Re: Steering wheel leather skin cover

Yes!, i'm very please with the result and the feeling.
After 5000km it haven't move or twist. And it still in perfect condition.

When I got the car, the leather and the under coat was long gone.

This product is made with a really good quality leather and thickness.

It was easy to install. But I think I should have pull not that hard when I was sewing it. I got I little wrinkle at the end.

I used a shelve anti slip material to put between the cover and the wheel. This material was easy to warp around the wheel and it is keeping the cover from moving or twisting.
Shelf anti slip material
For 24 $ can, it is a great product and I recommend it strongly.

Looks like a good affordable option.

If you are willing to ship your wheel for repair, this guy has gotten a lot of good recommendations; I understand he charges ~$220US for very nice restoration.
