Yeah I’ve seen this quite a lot. I think the idea of alcantara is good but think I’ll keep it as an idea@DOMINIC SELLY; compared to leather, the longevity of an alcantara steering wheel cover won’t be great. Unless you’re intending to wear gloves when you drive, the natural oils from your hands will be absorbed into the alcantara and it will get grubby quite quickly. I’m assuming It’s more of a breeding ground for germs too and more difficult to sanitise than a steering wheel with a smooth leather covering, which might be relevant and important to you in the current climate.
Alcantara is more grippy than leather and quite nice to hold but given the choice, if your car is a daily driver, I’d always go for a leather rimmed steering wheel as it’s a more practical option, longer lasting and much easier to keep clean.
That looks grim already, and it also looks like it is uneven, particularly on that bottom section. The left hand side seems to extend further than the right.What about something like this?: just one of several examples of part leather/part Alcantara retrims to be found on the Royal Steering Wheels website.
I had my Mk1 Wheel refurbed by Royal steering wheels. Just leather again but looks absolutely fantastic.That looks grim already, and it also looks like it is uneven, particularly on that bottom section. The left hand side seems to extend further than the right.
