Leather wrapped steering wheels

New Guy here. I have an 05 WK Laredo, and it has a less then pretty leather wrapped grey steering wheel. My question is, does anyone know if the leather is removed, does it reveal a normal vinyl wheel, or is it some hideous looking hoop of plastic/vinyl? My leather is getting sticky feeling and worn off at the top. Thanks

Re: Leather wrapped steering wheels

if you get a sticky feeling, maybe a soft fat/grease remover can clean it

Looked at those wheel skins...not sure about them. May make the wheel feel too thick. As for cleaners/grease removers, have not tried that yet. I may just hunt for a vinyl wheel of the same color. Thanks so far

Re: Leather wrapped steering wheels

I wouldn't remove the leather. I've seen a few steering wheels on ebay for decent prices though.

I seen one on eBay for a decent price, shipping to Canada is always a deal breaker, 3/4 the price of the items usually.
