    CX-9 Steering Wheel Wrap

    After repeatedly telling myself I will never wrap another steering, here's number 4. Even though wrapping a steering wheel takes blood, sweat and tears, oh did I mention multiple hours to complete, it's one of the few mods you can truly enjoy on a daily basis. Even after 4 steering wheel wraps, this project still took me roughly 3 hours to complete with the most difficult part was stitching the 3 and 9 position flaps, but overall I am very satisfied with the final results. Here's to never wrapping another wheel!

    The wrap is the perforated microfiber style with OEM matching gray stitching.

    I would begin by watching as many steering wheel stitching tutorials on YouTube and give yourself a full weekend for the project.

    Tips:
    • Ensure the wrap is perfectly lined up before stitching
    • To reduce neck strain, rotate the steering wheel so you're always stitching at a downward comfortable position (I don't like to dry steer, so I opted for stitching at all angle route).
    • Use a headlamp!
    • Using double sided tape to secure the wrap to the OEM steering wheel is not necessary
    • Always keep tension on the previous stitch



    Have fun!

    That looks really good! OEM like as sm1ke mentioned. My complain with the OEM is not thick enough and material is slippery. This wrap probably solves my complain but I'm not skilled enough to tackle such project.

    Not sure if this is the one he went with, but looks very similar. Very nice for a wrap/cover. It definitely looks OEM. Wish they made one like this for the Miata.

    While this looks nice in our weather esp now that it's cold then I fear I won't be able to utilize the heated stering wheel function...i need this function more than the aesthetic and feel of the wrap. In places where you won't really use the heated function then this wrap looks good!

    They claim it’s 100% genuine leather... why would you think you wouldn’t be able to use the heated steering wheel function? I’m guessing heat would still transfer through the wrap; or wouldn’t it?

    It'll definitely transfer through. I currently have a steering wheel cover on mine and whenever I use the heated steering wheel function, I can still feel it through the thick cover. A stitched wrap like this shouldn't make any difference when comparing with the OEM wheel.
