    hey all
    My steering wheel leather is peeling off the top of it. I hate it. Its ugly and right in front of my face. I remember years ago of some you guys had a thicker steering wheel that had like a silver rim on it. Where can I get one of those?
    Thanks

    That wheel looks to be of great quality, real carbon. Although a little to "racey" looking and I don't know how the grey airbag would look in the middle.

    My wheel has black the leather on top all worn too.. no places to get a stock one?

    I replaced mine through the dealership under warranty when the same thing was happening with the leather

    I have a brand new Stock SRT-10 Leather Steering Wheel that I've had for a long time, willing to part with it.

    It was awhile ago for sure; within a few years after purchasing the truck

    I wish I could find a Grant steering wheel so bad. You can have thd stock wheel recovered and add thicker padding but its like $600. I will prob end up doing that eventually. The skinny wheel and peeling leather pisses me off.

    IT's so ugly! I don't think its real leather anyway. Leather doesn't do that. Only cheap fake shit does. Ever have a leather jacket peel? Nope never. Its only that faux leather crap that peels

    This may be a Grant wheel but it’s not the one that is being talked about I don’t think.

    It looks to be the same wheel only without the silver insert at the top.

    The one with the silver lip is also a lot thicker than the stock one. Is that grant one without the lip thicker?
