How are Wheelskins Steering Wheel Covers installed?
Each cover comes complete with a nylon lacing cord, a needle, and illustrated detailed installation instructions. The holes are pre-punched with a patented lacing hole reinforcement to prevent tearing during installation. The time required is approximately 60 minutes.
My steering wheel has wide spokes. How do I deal with the spokes during installation?
The illustrated installation instructions show you how to lace around the spokes, how to skip holes at the spokes, or how to use dummy stitches at the spokes. We suggest the dummy stitches if your spokes are 2” wide or wider where they connect to the wheel. Click on the Original page to see the dummy stitches on the Grey single color Wheelskin.
How do I clean and maintain my Steering Wheel Cover?
Your Steering Wheel Cover is made of leather that is specifically tanned and finished for Wheelskins. We recommend that you gently use hand soap and water to remove any surface soil buildup. Avoid all purpose cleaners and protectants that will remove the special finishes and coatings on the leather. Also, most leather cleaners are made for the extremely hard finishes found on upholstery leathers, and these cleaners are unsuitable for the Wheelskins leather. In addition, many perfumes, colognes, and after shave lotions contain alcohol and other chemicals that could harm the leather. We recommend that your hands be free of these substances before you drive.
