Default Driving gloves or not!

Saw an old post (2003) asking if anyone used driving gloves......just wonder if you do and where is a good place to get a pair!

I like those thin genuine leather type!

Never even really considered it.....maybe I will. I will not drive without a steering wheel cover though. Not really for any driving advantage, just a weird thing. I just have to have one.

does ANYONE use driving glovs? Except for possibly winter use?

IMO, its a stupid idea, unless its cold out...

and ive got a heated steeringwheel, so no need for gloves for me (although i never used them before i had it)

HAH. YES?

In the winter time, my steering wheel is like holding on to a big chunk of ice. Its SO cold, you just can't touch it. the 92-99 steering wheels probably don't have as much of this problem, but for anyone with a 87-91, they should know what I'm talking about...those steering wheels aren't the best thing to be holding onto when its cold out

I usually use em until the car warms up...then take em off...I don't like the feeling of driving with gloves on....its like trying to type wearing an oven mitt

So I guess that leaves me with yes, but no every other time

I wear glove in the winter. This is Minnesota after all. So, if I happen to be driving, I guess they'd be driving gloves.

But, I don't wear gloves to drive. I did back in the 80'*, when they could also be rocker gloves, but not any more...
