Steering wheel cover

I have arthritis in my hands and think a padded steering wheel cover might help. It's an 18 inch wheel. I've looked at a couple of truck stops and on line but can't find one that specifically addresses the padded issue.

Don't know exactly what you are looking for but any cover that says padded will provide some padding. But I find the most beneficial part of the steering wheel cover is the larger gripping surface. I don't have to bend fingers or grip as tightly while driving using one. Be forewarned...the installation of the cover IS NOT EASY!

As said, most any neoprene type steering wheel cover will provide a padded feel. And as also said, they are difficult to install. A heat gun/ hair dryer works wonders.

Have you tried a leather upholstery shop? I had a Corvette steering wheel wrapped several years ago. I would suppose they would wrap it any way you wanted it.

"RJEV".....This may not be something you've thought about, but how about buying a good pair of gloves. They will give you the extra grip you're looking for.

After a lot of looking, I found mine at a truck stop. The stock wheels are just too thin.
