StrokinSnyd,

Maybe try a steering wheel cover. They are relatively inexpensive and are easy to install. They're available at most auto-parts stores or I am sure you can find some really nice ones online.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.:Thumbup:

I've had good luck with these covers.

Poke Here

They are expensive but my 1/2ton Dodge was just how you described yours and I put one one there and it took care of it. The are nice and soft and don't inlarge the wheel diameter very much at all. They do take some time to install because you have to lace them but its worth it as far as looks go. :Thumbup:

If the area is real bad you could build it up with some tape before installing the skin to make sure you wouldn't see or feel a low spot.

Good Luck!

:iagree

I hear nothing but positive feedback about Wheelskins Covers. If you decide to go with a cover a some sort, be sure to treat it regularly with a Leather Conditioner to prevent fading or damage:Thumbup: .

When my '99 steering wheel wore out, I had a new one put in for $250. I don't think that is bad at all. My '05 has the first layer wore off and I will probaly have to repace it in the future.

I'd put a new one on if I were you.
