Anyone using a Wheelskins steering wheel cover?

I've searched and found where some guys have used them but they posted no pictures.

Mine is coming apart at the 12:00 position (big surprise, huh?) and I can't stand it. I don't want the cheap slip on covers from Wal-Mart or a parts store and I don't want to buy a new wheel. My truck is my daily transportation so I can't afford to ship my wheel off to have it recovered.

So, if anyone if running a Wheelskins cover could you post a pic of it and your opinion of the quality of it? Thanks.

LOL


on My KR it did the same
I found a 15 dollar cover that is a simulated burl wood just like my dash and some other rubber at the hand positions

it's been flawless

it works well because I have big hands so the increased diameter was welcome

Thanks for responding...it was lonely here all by myself.

I don't think I could do the one in the pic, all I could think of when I saw the ends of the cover was a condom. I'm looking at a full diameter, lace on cover.
