Steering wheel cracking

What's my best option to replace a cracking steering wheel?

I think steering wheel covers are cheesy.

Thanks

Re: Steering wheel cracking

Rice and cheap I know but I put some gorilla glue on the cracking portions to hold it down, and used some generic black automotive touch up paint to coat the cracks when the glue dried. Be sure to keep your windows rolled down for a bit because it does smell strong

Watched a bunch of DIY YouTube videos. Some of the results look great. Think I'll check with my local leather repair place before I become Betsy Ross

I tried multiple ways to repair the leather and finally gave up. Bought a new wheel (mileoneparts/$360) and sold the old wheel ($180) for minimal outlay ($180). The leather on the newer wheels is different and so far (2 years) is much more durable.
