Default Are there any Lexus Steering Wheel Covers?

Greetings,

I was wondering if there are any quality Lexus steering wheel covers sold anywhere. My hands are big and at times trying to get a good firm grip on the steering wheel feels as though the steering wheel is too skinny.

I have the leather wheel skins in my Mercedes and Acura and they do help me get a better grip especially when you have to really whip around some traffic or sharp curves.

Let me know if there are any options I can explore. Thanks.

Thats a good idea. Find a leathersmith to sew you a couple out of real tough soft leather with a nice tight stitch for closure 150 bucks?

I decided to go with the Wheel Skins. Color scheme is two tone with TAN at the Top and Bottom and CHARCOAL on the sides which should match my interior perfectly. See sample photos:

Finally got the Wheelskins today. Took just over an hour to position and lace around. Matches the interior colors very good and feels great in my hands. Here are some before and after shots. Let me know how you like. Later!

Just drove around running some errands and the whip appeal is definitely improved. No more hands slipping. Firm fat grip is solid. Later!
