I bought basic black Wheelskin leather steering wheel covers for my 1995 Volvo 850 and my wife's 1999 Honda CRV. The Volvo wheel is fairly thick but the Wheelskin cover does not add to that appreciably. It feels great and looks great. On the CRV, the wheel is thinner and the Wheelskin adds a bit of extra grip, not to mention how much better it looks than a stock wheel. As others have said, the most important thing to keep in mind when installing these covers is to give youself plenty of time. Work in good light. Be patient and pull things very tight. I was interrupted to the point of having to stop the first installation on the Volvo. I just taped up the thread and went back to it the next day. It is possible to sew ahead several inches loosely, then come back and tighten each stitch individually. I found this helpful doing the shorter sections between spokes. Sew a little, check your stitching (I had to undo a couple of sections because I missed a stitch in poor lighting and redo them,) then tighten. It might be helpful to have either some needle-nosed pliers, medical hemostat clamps, or a short knitting needle to help pick up the thread to tighten it between stitches. I had some old hemostats in my tool box that worked very well but any of the other suggestions would work. In the end, you will be very pleased with the cover and your work!
