    I understand many frown on steering wheel covers, but those of you who don't - would you recommend a good cover?

    I am not a large guy with huge palms so a cover that makes me drive with open hands won't do :CWL:

    I read many reviews where they keep sliding, rotating, ripping and even popping off while you drive.

    Needs to fit JLRU.

    Little tough to get on the steering wheel but so far I like this one. I heard of the OEM fabric cracking due to UV, oily hands, etc so I thought I'd play it safe. Love that the color matches interior.

    I'll be that guy, don't cover it. Just buy new one in 5 years when it's wore out. Nothing lasts forever, that's why they make replacement parts. A new one without the heating element can be had for $200, with heating $300.

    Or wipe down the steering wheel with leather or interior cleaning/protectant once a month, you will never have to change it.

    Protecting the trim is not the reason, but the wheel is too slim and I have to clench my fists to grip and they get tired, plus the finish (I think leather on JLRU) is too smooth, so no good grip. This is the reason I need the cover. Not to protect the factory leather trim.
