steering wheel cover

I bought a steering wheel cover in tan from walmart. I ended up ripping it trying to get it on. It said fots 14.5to15.5 wheels. These superduty wheels are at least 15.5 not much bigger?
any one find something that covers a wheel when its worn?

Try putting the steering wheel cover on or near the heater, an it works very well opposed to trying with cold material...

Forget the crap at Walmart, if you want a nice wheel cover look up wheelskins not cheap and your hands will hurt after sewing it on but it feels great and lasts. I wish Ford would recall for cosmetic issues because their wheels would look terrible after little usage. I have had the wheelskins for a couple years and still looks like new.

Heating it up first is the key. The material does stretch a little bit and you simply need every inch of it to get it on.

i have the walmart tan version also. I am on my second one. I agree they don't hold up as long as others do , but by the time I go to replace mine due to tears, it is also pretty grimmy from the dirt off my hands so I am glad to put a new one on (and happy that they are too expensive at that point).
