You can do what I did................
It took me a while to find a steering wheel for my car USED. After I did at a good price I was still able to get in the CL group buy w/ american stitches. I send them a wood piece and they matched it perfectly......... The bad thing for me (hope this doesnt happen to any one else) is they didnt do the leather color like it was they changed it. Overall it looks great.
The company has not emailed me back in over a month and a half on why they messed up so they could fix it. Its now at a japanese company getting my leather to match. So the money I saved Is now being spent
I think this is the best way to have wood/leather steering wheel as long as they do it right the 1st time. Hope this helps.
I have see some of my friends cars that have leather/wood steering. The leather seems to fade faster then the wood does.
