[Steering & Suspension] Steering wheel
#1
Hi guys picking up my 2009 XTR tomorrow and previous owner was prone to picking the steering wheel whilst sitting in traffic. So I'm left with a wheel looking like mice have had a little nibble. 
Would quite like to change but finding it hard to locate 2nd hand, so it's looking like a wheel cover, has anybody used the slip on type, can't be arsed to spend hours sewing the leather job?
Thanks in advance

I got mine from Halfords, I wanted a thick one due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, does the job perfectly.

I think this is the one.

I have had 2 of these in 2 different cars: in a xsara Picasso, and in this case the wheel cover was loose, and it was horrible; and now in my Pug Partner. the one in the picasso already came with the car, and because it was so loose, I ended up removing it, it was a security hazard. The one I have in the Pug is really tight. It was hard work to fit in, I almost had to get these bicycle tire fitting tools to get it on the steering wheel. It has some leather, so it is more comfortable to the touch, and yes, the wheel is now very thick.

The last one was here in a German autoparts shop nearby. I do not remeber the brand, sorry.

Or Peugeot 207 wheels are identical. I got a nice leather one for a tenner.
