Steering wheel covers?

When driving, my black rubber steering wheel (Ford) gets kind of sticky. Or my hands get hot and sweaty from the heat, who knows, but I am going to buy a new steering wheel cover.....anybody wanna weigh in on this?

I like this:

My Mom has a sheepskin wheel cover on her car. I hate it as it seems that you 'lose' a certain feel. I know what you're saying about the Ford wheel. It gets kinda 'sticky' I have this on my work truck.

Kent--your dogs might attack that sheepskin while you're driving.

Thumbs up

I would like to recommend "Wheel Skins" steering wheel covers. After installation they look like a factory installed leather steering wheel and they have a great feel. They are available in many different sizes and colors. I installed one on my son's pickup that after 200,000 miles had a steering wheel that looked really ragged. When it was done it looked great.

Here is the website: Wheelskins - The World's Finest Genuine Leather Motoring Accessories, Steering Wheel Covers, Driving Gloves and Shift Boots

Installed Leather Steering Wheel Cover

Attached is a photo of the "Wheel Skins" steering wheel cover that I installed on my Tiffin Phaeton/Freightliner. Can't say it was easy but I am very pleased with how it turned out. I ordered the steering wheel cover in "charcoal" as I wanted to complement rather than contrast the existing steering wheel color.

I saw an interesting cover while camped at Lake Mead 2 weeks ago. On a nice Class A the steering wheel area had a had a table covered with a lovely lace tablecloth and a vase of flowers.

I wonder how well it steered? They left before I woke up.

I just picked one up at a truck stop in Tehachapi for about $17. It's simulated wood with black rubber knobbies at the 10-2 and 6positions. It's quite comfy....

I made one for our DSDP, but it was mainly to keep the cats off the horn "button" at 3 am!! The air horns are REALLY REALLY loud in a campground at that time of night!!

I'm needing something like that to keep Sena, my capuchin, off the horn and to stop her from turning on the emergency flashers. She does that when she wants my immediate attention and all other tactics have failed. Thankfully she only does it during daylight. I can only imagine how popular you must be with fellow campers after a 3am kitty wake-up call.
