Not a big deal but it bothers me. Wondering if anyone knows of a product that can fix these type of scratches. Itís not the leather itís that plastic or whatever the wheel is made of.

Where I live my local Lexus dealership uses an independent leather repair company. Have used them twice once for leather and once for vinyl around the radio that they tore trying to remove the radio. They did a fantastic job. Sure that spot is some time of vinyl. They will be able to fill in the spot and match but the grain there might be a challenge to match. Any way sure will look a lot better. Good luck. Call your local Lexus dealers and see if they use a similar company.

Thanks, now Iím searching interior repair places. Thereís a few. Shouldnít be expensive for that little scuff. I bet if I send a pic without the Lexus symbol on the wheel theyíre gonna quote me less.

I agree. Call your dealer. This is not a very expensive repair but it is in a very visible spot. Any savings you might get would be offset by the risk of using a vendor who is not linked to the dealer. Plus your time has value. I had a much larger rip in the leather seat. The repair cost me $75 and it is 100% undetectable.
