Good question...I need to do something with mine too. My wedding band has worn the top area down to where it is pretty rough. I know that MAF sells leather skins that you have to fit and thread yourself but I have not asked anyone about them yet. I wonder if they work well and if they look good enough to go through the trouble of recovering, or should I just hold out until I decide to replace the whole steering wheel.

It is definitely NOT cheaper to replace the steering wheel.

93-4 leather wheel, black:45100-60181-C0 list $716.21

95-7 leather wheel, grey: 45100-60230-B0 list $831.01
95-7 leather wheel, tan: 45100-60230-e0 list $831.01

And no, they do not include the horn pad (93-4) or air bag (95-7)


Can I order one for you? :eek:

Just get one of those cool rubber covers from Auto-Zone.

You know...the ones with the fast and the furious logos!

Thats cool. I like the idea but how would I get to work in the mean time? I have used a pair of VISE GRIPS before on a VW, but I would not want to try it with my cruiser. JK
How long do they take I wonder and what could I put on as temp replacement until mine is finished? Also, is it a big deal removing the stock wheel...do I need a puller... and What about the air bag in the stock wheel, I am afraid of accidentally deploying it while removing the wheel?
