Steering Wheel Covers | Fresh Look And Fresh Grip

This guide examines leather, velour, foam, and vinyl steering wheel covers that increase grip, feel good in your hands, and provide insulation.

Today's snug-fit, custom steering wheel covers aren't just for bling anymore. Thanks to modern high-grade materials, steering wheel covers can actually make driving safer and more comfortable. For starters, OEM steering wheel surfaces wear smooth over time, making them harder to hold onto. Custom steering wheel covers provide fresh grip, ensuring optimum control under all driving conditions - especially during sudden emergency maneuvers or off-roading.

Steering Wheel Covers Variety Banner

Many of our steering wheel covers are made with a layer of memory foam that's springy to the touch. Should you prefer it, we've even got covers made completely of foam. Not only are these types of covers grippier, they serve as shock absorbers to reduce high-frequency vibrations transmitted through the steering wheel. Naturally, this increases driver comfort while reducing fatigue.

And if you've got a steering wheel that gets very hot to the touch in warm weather, a cover with a softer outer layer will stay cooler for increased comfort. In cold weather, such covers aren't nearly as cold either!

In this article, we'll look at steering wheel covers offered on our website. We think you'll find our leather, velour, foam, and vinyl offerings to be handsome and stylish- they boost the looks of any car or truck interior for a fraction of the cost of replacing an entire wheel.


Nothing looks and feels like real leather, and we've got several styles that emphasize that. For starters, you'll find a number of great leather cover values on our Torxe product page. For those that prefer luxury accents, Torxe's Genuine Leather "Version 23" covers are available in black or beige with faux wood trim edging.

Thanks to advances in polymer technology and construction, steering covers made of "faux leather" (also known as vinyl) are more attractive and luxurious than ever. For example, the Winjet Faux Leather Steering Wheel Cover with MultiCurve Pattern offers a choice of solid colors with stylish ridge patterns.
