There are lace on steering wheel covers that are a good thing because they wear out while the OEM stays like new. When it wears out you can replace them and have exactly what you had years ago. Those slip-on covers are also slip-off covers. The easier they go on the easier they come off. I can't stand the feeling of lost control I get from them. Lots of people like them but I'm not one of them. Like it matters to anyone what I like and don't like.

I feel we've had a conversation about steering wheel covers before 😂

Yeah, here we go again

Wizard, the ones we get are just generic units usually from our local Advance Auto, they donít slip on at all, itís a very tight fit. Iíve never had one slip or get loose. We use them on all our work trucks because we get into some nasty stuff and they like keeping them relatively clean for trade in purposes. My trucks at 97k miles of oilfield use and barely a scratch on it till last Friday . Cellphone + Facebook + 22 year old boy with his nose stuck in said phone + big ass rock laying on the side of the lease road....sheís scratched now. That new steering wheel cover doesnít do much for the bumper and fender

I've been looking at the lace on covers, needed something quick for a road trip and this one feels good for my arthritic hands. Finding matching colors for the cocoa dune colored wheel is a challenge, this one is very tight and took some heating and pulling to get it on.

Took it out for a short jaunt after working in the shop. Headed south to check out the 'Mexico' so many talk about. They had way too much traffic and wildlife out tonight.

I run a cover on my work trucks and personal truck. Keeps them nice and I can swap and clean or just replace

I don't know what I would do if I couldn't rant about the same things over and over.

Look at this way, you are akin to a Drill Instructor.

There is an entire new batch of recruits every 4-8 weeks in Desperate need of the knowledge and wisdom you possess.

Tried dipping my badges, it's not fun when it over 100 deg outside!
