So, today, I share some of the factors, tips, and tricks that shall light the steering wheel cover world to you and also help you out in choosing the best that suits your needs.
So, why should you add that wheel cover to your steering wheel?
You might have overused your wheel!
One of the reasons you shall need that cover badly is because the original upholstery of your steering wheel might have worn out. Once you pick an ideal cover with the guidelines I shall give later, I guarantee your steering wheel shall be ‘new’ again.
Now that yours is still in good condition, then it is time you go for a cover early. You know why? The cover shall wear out on behalf of the original upholstery of your steering wheel. When your cover is fully worn out, you can always go for a new one. Do not worry since the cover shall cost you just a few bucks compared to what you shall need when the rea steering wheel’s upholstery is worn out.
When you need a new fresh look of your vehicle’s interior, think of a steering wheel cover.
Did you know that just a slight change in the look of your steering wheel makes a difference in the look of your vehicle’s interior? A better look shall lead to closer boding with your vehicle which consequently leads to a careful driver who loves their ride. Sometimes, you might be changing the looks, not for yourself, but for your family or friends. In this case, choose an over with the design or colors they like and thank me later.
That steering wheel might be eating up your hands
Some steering wheels are not just comfortable. Continued use of this makes your hands strain a lot. The best solution for this shall be going for a cover that shall offer a more friendly handling experience. Those who’ve gone long distances know what I’m talking about since long-distance driving makes that easy rotating wheel feel hard and tiresome to handle. Pick a good cover and you are out of strain.
How then do you choose the best steering wheel cover for your vehicle?
Consider the size of your steering wheel
You do not want to buy a cover that’s only half the size of your wheel. This is how you prepare to pick the right size. Use masking tape and stick it around your steering wheel, after this, remove it and measure it to get the exact size of your wheel. Repeat the same process to get the size of your wheel’s grip circumference.
When choosing your best steering cover, rin the tape or use something else to measure and ensure it fits your steering wheel. Always remember that the cover needs to be slightly larger than your steering wheel to fit.
Are you interested in fashion, or function?
As we said earlier, steering wheel covers come in handy for both function and fashion uses. Each cover is designed to fulfill either of the two. When choosing the ideal cover for your steering wheel, ensure the features fit your needs, that is fashion or function needs.
For fashion reasons, we shall dwell more on the looks as opposed to functionality. You might need to ensure that the pimping and color of the cover matches your vehicle’s interior or exterior. The theme of pimping be a cartoon, nature or any other should fit your likes.
Fabric, plastic, cushion grip or leather?
Covers are made using different materials. So, which one do you go to? Fabric does not conform too much to the temperature conditions. That is, when sun rays penetrate through your windscreen, it won’t get too hot compared to plastic and leather.
Leather covers are not that worse in responding to temperatures. With a leather cover also, you are guaranteed of a long operational life. Plastic is cheap and a good choice when you are running on a limited budget, otherwise, I advise against going for it.
We previously talked about long-distance drivers. These are the people who know what driving fatigue means. With a cushion grip steering wheel cover, much of the shock shall be dealt with, thereby ensuring less strain and longer rides.
How do you install your best-selected steering wheel cover?
A perfect installation shall ensure that you strain less when operating your steering wheel. This is how you do it perfectly.
First, wipe all the dirt from your steering wheel.
Ensure that your wheel cover is void of any wraps that might bar you from feeding it to the wheel.
Now hold your cover at one point on top of your steering wheel and feed it bit by bit from the top of the wheel.
After the top is fully covered, now proceed to cover the bottom.
If there are any parts left out you can slightly force them to fit. After this, thoroughly work your steering wheel to make it uniform and ensure the cover fully aligns with the steering wheel.
Guess what? You are fully done fixing your ideal steering wheel cover, you can no enjoy the benefits of having it on your wheel. Steering wheel. Have a swift drive.
