What is the correct size for a Wheelskin wrap for a stock '87 FJ60 steering wheel? The circumference of the grip is pretty small and I don't want to have extra material overlapping in the inside. Thanks.

I saw that but I was wondering if the BX size has the right circumference.

I wrapped my steering wheel with tape to bulk it up a little. I used what ever size the vendor recommended.

What kind of tape did you use?
I used a silicone tape. It doesn’t have adhesive but is stretchy and sticks to itself. It is expensive though so something else might be more economical. I remember thinking at the time I should have used vinyl electrical tape. But what I did has been fine for 10+ years.

I've seen that silicone tape. I may try that so as not to have any adhesive on the wheel if I ever remove it.

"Bulking up" the steering wheel with silicone tape is an interesting idea that never crossed my alleged mind. The wheel on my 85 FJ60 is a way skinny son-of-a-gun. I have a lace up Wheelskin but have not yet installed it. Silicone tape would be my choice over electrical tape for sure. Years down the line electrical could be a real mess should you want to remove it.

Not as nice as Wheelskins, but this is what I ordered in the "A" size. It fits tightly around the outside of the steering wheel, but there is some overlap where I stitched it together - not enough to notice or bother with though. That width should be correct for your cover, I wonder about the outside diameter.

FWIW, I put this on 2 years or so ago and I daily drive my 60. I am now seeing some wear on the finish, so I don't think its as durable as the Wheelskin cover from what I've heard.

I just got the wheel skin installed the BX was not the right size for me. I sent them measurements with pictures and they sent me a custom one. It fits absolutely perfect. The size was 15 ½ x 2 ¾ . Stock 87 60 steering wheel

LandoNick, Thanks for the info. That is what I was looking for. I was not looking forward to wrapping tape around first.
