Default Wheelskins?

I'm trying to find a good cover for my steering wheel since I can't seem to find a stock replacement. I've found wheelskins, available from www.pfyc.com, but I can't decide what color would match my 92 SSE'* leather. Tan or Oak? I'd get it elsewhere for cheaper, but this will give you the idea...

ok this might make No sense to you...........did you ever think of getting a 95 Steering wheel....they are all black instead of color matched to the car....the Airbag is still the SIR system and is virtually the same...

I've thought about it, but I like the color matched one.

Also the column wouldn't match the wheel at that point.

I have a WheelSkins on mine, but mine is gray, because my interior is gray. I'd say if you're unsure about it, just order both tan and oak, use the one that matches best, and send the other one back. BTW, I got my WheelSkin cover at Pep Boys several years ago. And I like it. I'll grab a pic and post it.

In the picture you linked to they really messed up the stitching at the bottom. You can do a much better stictch job.

Here'* mine, and yes I've noticed it has several years of grime on it, and yes, I will be giving it a good cleaning soon. In any case, I really do like how it feels, it gives a really good grip.

I bought a all black one at pep boys for 9$. I like the feel of it. When I squeeze it, the skin fluffs back up. Gets to be a neat feature in traffic. But, I would definately get one that matches, just so you dont have any regrets

Except for the center and that one spot where it'* wheel colored that looks pretty close to an interior color match. Where'* Scott? (Calls asylum).
