Apart from their aesthetic function, steering wheel covers are also practical. They protect the steering wheel from being soiled and damaged, and also thicken it, which ensures more comfortable grip.
Steering wheel covers: 6 important facts
- The accessories can be made of genuine or artificial leather, fur, chamois, plush, PVC, microfibre or other materials. PVC accessories are easy-to-clean, they are resistant to high temperatures and moisture. Steering wheel covers made of natural leather are wearproof, smooth, elastic and soft. The plush accessories are perfect for use in cold season, as they provide additional comfort for hands during driving.
- Many manufacturers specify the size of their products. In order to avoid mistakes, it is important to know your steering wheel size. If it is 35–37 cm then, in most cases, S size will fit; 37–38 cm – M; 39–40 – L; more than 40 cm – XL.
- Manufacturers produce steering wheel covers with various types of fasteners: some are simply pulled on, others are laced. In the latter case, the products, as a rule, are supplied with a thread and a needle.
- Unless otherwise stated in the manual, the cover should be put on from top to bottom, with test fitting it beforehand. It is important that it would not cover buttons, levers and other car control elements.
- Most of the accessories are recommended to be mounted at room temperature. It is better to work with an assistant, as, when doing this, it is necessary to hold the part of the cover which has already been put on. Otherwise it may slip out and you will have to start over again.
- The accessories made of natural leather should be regularly treated with special cleaning agents. Fur and chamois items can be cleaned with a dry brush or car vacuum cleaner. It is not recommended to wash the cover, as this can make it look worse and lose its snug fit on the steering wheel.
