So, let us start right away!
What is a steering wheel cover?
A steering wheel cover, as the name suggests, is a kind of shell that you put on your genuine steering wheel for protection, comfort, and looks.
You can put a steering wheel cover on steering in 2-ways based on their design;
- By simply slipping it over the steering
- By stitching it
Is the steering wheel cover good?
Yes, steering wheel covers have 4-main functions;
✓ Grip: Premium Steering wheel covers surface is designed with a lot of grooves, raisings, & edges so it can provide maximum grip even when your hands are sweaty and oily.
✓ Comfort: Original steering wheels are mostly hard, but steering wheel covers are mostly designed soft to provide your hands comfort by absorbing vibrations. Also, if you want an extra comfy level, you can buy plush / foam-based covers.
✓ Protection: Steering wheels are the only part of a vehicle that is in constant contact directly with human skin ( hands ), harmful agents from the hands, such as dirt, oil, nail polish, etc can easily damage the original steering wheel as well as constant friction between hands & steering will scratch off an original steering material eventually. So, by adding a steering wheel cover, you can increase the lifespan of your original steering wheel.
✓ Beauty: Most car steering wheels come in only standard black color, which can be boring to some people. While steering wheel covers come in many shades, such as wood, gray, blue, camouflage, green, red, black, purple, pictures, etc. So, you can add a steering wheel cover that has a color of your choice, that will make you & passengers happy as well as make your car look more beautiful.
Do steering covers affect your driving?
Yes, steering wheel covers affect your driving, but whether they affect driving in a good way or a bad way will depend upon the quality & size of the steering wheel.
Bad Affect: If your steering wheel is of low quality it will not properly deal with your hand’s sweat & oil and makes your hands slip on steering, which may result in an accident. Plus, if you buy the wrong size steering cover, it will mostly slip on the steering and may also cause an accident. So, always buy the perfect size.
Good Affect: Most premium quality steering covers have special patterns on them, which will make your hands stay on the steering even when your hands are sweaty & oily. Plus, steering wheel covers increase steering size, which will ensure that your hands grip steering more firmly. Also, Steering wheels covers are made soft to absorb max vibration, which makes them comfy for your body. Lastly, different color steering wheels provide comfort to the driver and make driving easy.
Do steering wheel covers affect airbags?
No, steering wheel covers do not affect the deployment of steering airbags.
An airbag is deployed at the center of the steering, while the steering wheel cover is present at the edges of the steering, so the cover will not cause any trouble to an airbag.
Just make sure that the steering wheel cover;
- Is in good condition, not chipped off from any point
- It does not have any sharp points.
Because when the airbag deploys, it comes in contact with a cover, and at that point, damaged areas of cover may get chipped off & fly away, which may cause damage. Also, a sharp point of cover may rupture the bag.
But as long as you keep the steering wheel cover in the best condition, most likely nothing bad will happen due to steering wheel cover during airbag deployment.
Are steering wheel covers one size fits all?
Yes and No.
It is true that Steering wheel covers come in many sizes, mostly in the range of 14 inches ~ 17.5 inches diameter and grip size of 2 ¾ inches to 4 ¼ inches, so one size does not fit all. But yes, it is also true that the above size range can fit most kinds of vehicles in the market. So, it is more true to say that ” Few sizes fits All “.
What are steering wheel covers made from?

How do I keep my steering wheel warm in the winter?
You can warm your steering wheel warm in winters in 4 ways, but which way is the best for you, compare yourself;
X By turning on a car heater ( slow process and over-heated air may cause nausea ).
✓ By installing a heated steering wheel cover ( fast heating and low-cost & easily available).
X By installing a heated steering wheel ( fast heating but very costly & not available for every car ).
X By heat from hands ( slow process and only works best if you have a fluffy steering wheel cover because it is good in retaining heat ).
Can you drive with heated steering wheel cover plugged in?
Yes, you can drive your car, and rotate the steering wheel as many turns as you want while the heated steering wheel cover is connected to the 12 V cigarette plug.
The heated steering wheel cover has 2 safety options designs available in cigarette plug connection;
- A curly/spiral wire ( which automatically extends & de-extends while you turn the steering wheel ).
- A detachable magnetic connector ( which disconnects the wire from the steering wheel cover if wire length reaches its maximum ).
Can I put a steering wheel cover on a heated steering wheel?
Yes, you can put a steering wheel cover on a heated steering wheel without any main worry.
There is a smallish issue, heat from the heated steering wheel will reach your hands a little less & slower because now the steering wheel cover is between.
Besides this, if you are using a cheap quality cover, it may expand due to heating, may slip, and may cause an accident. But premium quality covers do not expand easily and do not slip. Other than this, there will be no critical issue.
Are leather steering wheels really leather?
Yes and No. Most leather steering wheel covers in the market are made from PU or PVC leather, which is both artificial ones.
Some highest premium steering wheel covers are manufactured from real animal leather, which is very very costly.
PU ( polyurethane ) & PVC ( polyvinyl chloride ) leather materials almost look the same as real animal leather but are available at very low prices.
PVC leather has more layers and is more durable, while PU leather has fewer layers, has more pores, and is less durable.
What is the size of my steering wheel?

- Vehicle type ( car, ambulance, truck, etc )
- Vehicle Model ( example; Toyota Corolla or Camry, etc )

Maintaining your steering wheel cover is not only necessary for making it look good but if it gets damaged, or any greasy substance is present on it, then your hand may get a slip, may cause you to lose car control & an accident may happen.
So, for maintaining your precious steering wheel cover follow the below processes when needed;
- Hand Washing
- Machine Washing
a) Cleaning Steering Wheel Cover
Dust your steering wheel cover with a clean cloth ( preferably a microfiber towel ), so any oil, dust, chemicals, or other harmful agents, which daily get attached to the steering wheel from the driver’s hand will get removed. So, your steering cover will return to its optimum condition.
Sometimes, clean your steering wheel cover with a wet cloth. For that, take a microfiber towel, slightly wet it with normal water or cleaning liquid ( in fluid or spray form ), and rub it gently on the cover until every area is covered.
|Always clean the steering preferably with isopropyl alcohol before putting the cover back on.|
b) Hand Washing Steering Wheel Cover
When your cover is too dirty & cleaning with a cloth is not doing any good, then take it off and follow the below steps;
➢ Take a Clean Cloth ( preferably a microfiber towel )
➢ Add warm ( normal ) water to a bucket
➢ Add mild soap/cleaning liquid to a bucket
➢ Scrub your dirty Steering wheel cover with a cloth
➢ When all debris is removed, dip steering wheel cover in freshwater
“You can wash any kind of material normal Steering wheel covers, such as Sheepskin, Plush, Leather, Neoprene, etc with this method”
“Heated Steering wheel covers are advanced electrical products. Only clean them with a dry or slightly wet cloth/cleaning spray. Never dip them in Water.
c) Machine Washing
Machine washing is a more efficient & more easy cleaning process, but it is not suggested for all kinds of materials of Steering wheel covers.
Except for Sheepskin & other fluffy materials, all other materials of steering wheel covers are machine washable.
For Machine Washing, follow the below steps;
➢ Put warm water in the machine
➢ Put mild detergent in the machine ( do not use fragrance one )
➢ Do not use fabric softener
➢ Let the machine run
➢ Rinse it in warm water
➢ Do not put any other items with a steering wheel cover because their color will get on your SWC, or their fibers ( especially cotton cloth fibers ) may get entangled in the Steering wheel cover.
Well, it is strongly advised not to put your steering wheel cover ( SWC ) in a dryer ( especially fluffy ones ) because dryer fast-spinning may loosen the fibers or affect the shape of your cover.
Always let air-dry your cover in the sun preferably in a horizontal position rather than hanging to a wire.
