WheelSkins for peeling steering wheels...
 
I've been cursed with the peeling steering wheel in my '07 and ended up going with a wheelskins cover. The leather is very good quality, giving the thicker wheel a great feel. Installation was a tedious 2.5hrs mainly because I ended up going with the baseball stitch (need an extra thread kit). Use thin gloves to protect your fingers when pulling (I used latex). I'm very happy with it and highly recommend it over the bulky slip on ones..

Very nice. I wish I had the black steering wheel, but I will be ordering one of these soon!

I bought the cover off eBay and asked the seller to throw in an extra thread kit. He was kind enough to do so. I've read you can get a thread kit directly from WheelSkins, but not sure if they'll charge you for it.

Cool, that's good to know if I ever need one. Here's the website I used that has really good information on doing the baseball stitch:
