Leather steering wheel fix?

My 08 f250 has the normal wear on the steering wheel, is there anywhere that fixes this or is an oem replacement the only option?

Would you be interested in a partially woodgrain steering wheel to replace it? Because there's a guy I can put you in contact with that does custom steering wheels in woodgrain, carbon fiber, whatever color you want. He did one for me in my truck, I'll dig around and see if I can find some pics. Mine has woodgrain that matches my doors on the top and bottom of the wheel now so I don't ever have to worry about wearing a spot in my leather since I always drive with my hand at 12 o'clock.

Here ya go:






I've seen an 08+ wheel he's done, and he can only put the trim across the top of the wheel due to the spoke pattern.

Those steering wheels are sweet! If you are still under warranty, than you can get a new one. Just check with your dealer.

I have had a wheel done like above for my KR. I drive with my hand at the 9p position. The dye he used on mie didn't hold up. It has been less than a year and it is worn thru.

I haven't had any problems with mine so far. You have to keep in mind that he hand stitches the leather on these things and it's not going to be nearly as tight knit as your factory leather wheel, but it's good quality and the woodgrain matches very well.

Guys name is Bob Mansmith. His email is: rjmansmith@aol.com

He's posted on here numerous times.

I think mine ran approximately $180 after the core refund. You pay for the wheel and then send yours in after he sends one out to you so he has another one in stock to refurb. Good guy to deal with. I installed mine myself. Not difficult at all.

Those do look good. I sent him an email and hopefully he can do something for me as long as the wood grain can match my radio bezel
