    steering wheel cover

    Has anyone come up with a 17" steering wheel cover for our vans? I don't know who came up with the idea
    that a skinny steering wheel is ergonomically correct way back when but I wouldn't mind kicking them in the
    groin for letting it happen.
    Anything to increase the wheel rim diameter would be welcome. It seems the ones you have to tie down with 15ft of vinyl thread have gone to the wayside. I can buy a nice leather one for $52.00 but still have to stitch it on.

    Thanks

    I have been looking at some covers for truck steering wheels.

    I did two of mine so far...

    Yes, you can get leather version online. I did two wheels so far. They have a bunch of colors and styles. Wheelskins is the company name.

    They are a good company. The product is good quality. I did the baseball stitch it looks best, but can be difficult, at least for me. I was not a sewer. Good luck!

    I saw this version seems to be orange/black. But if they have the color you can request the entire wheel be in that color.
