Leather wrapped steering wheel.
 
Hi everybody. Have any of you either recovered or removed the wrap on the steering wheel? Mine has a tear right about 12 o'clock ant it's very annoying. Just wondering what options there might be. I'm not a fan of those slip on or wrap around wheel covers

I just wrapped my wheel with a black leather cover by a company called WheelSkins

It took about 45 minutes to install, but very easy.

I like the two tone, matching your seats. What's nice about the WheelSkins is that they have nice grip, and make the steering wheel just a little bit beefier to hold.

Another fan of WheelSkins here! I've used their covers for 10 years, and they hold up very well. Nice, quality product. Well worth the price.

Those look really nice. Do you have to string them up or take them someplace?

$60 for a steering wheel cover in a jeep?

Sure, why not? I don't have one but I look at it like guys who build high end computers and stick with the same crappy keyboard and mouse. Those are where you and the computer actually meet. Same with a steering wheel. Why not make it pleasant? :thumb:

Yep, it's worth it to me.

Two questions

1) Do these install over the factory wrap or do you remove it first?

2) What color matches the steering wheel better- black or the dark grey?

Steve305 12-21-2012 11:30 AM

They are sized to your FACTORY steering wheel. So if it has a grip from the factory, these will install over them.

As for the guy questioning the price, these aren't your "average" wheel covering. They are leather, and are sized EXACTLY to your wheel's diameter and rim thickness. They truly fit "like a glove" if you take your time and do the install correctly.
