Yup, wheelskins are pretty nice. Took me forever to do mine and I need to redo it as some stitched areas aren't as tight as others.

I saw some leather covers in Wal Mart that looked OK...

What's wrong with them?

I think the wheelskins are the best choice that I have seen before.

From personal experince- do the Wheelskin. Much, much better looking. And be sure to put something on your fingers so you don't get blisters. I got horrible ones from the twine stuff.

Let me know the year and color and I will see what the OEM would go for. They are reasonably priced, and some time I can get them at 50% if a dealer has one in stock that is old.

I may also be interested in a midnight blue steering wheel depending on price.
