I've put wheelskins on every car I've owned that didn't have a leather wheel. They aren't the easiest steering wheel covers to apply, but they are well worth the effort.
That said, I don't know why, but after installing the cover on my Escape there was a gap on one side of the wheel that wasn't on the other. Not a big deal, but all the other cars I've installed these on looked factory perfect.
Anyway, they add a bit of thickness to the wheel and the touch of real leather just makes any car more fun to drive.
And don't be afraid to experiment with color. Wheelskins will send you color samples for free. My car has a tan interior, but I used a black wheel cover with a black dash cover. Matches the factory accents on the dash and makes the car look real sporty.
