Same problem with mine..my wife's Jeep essentially and she's a hand cream fanatic which I believe helps break down the color faster. Tried a wheelskin..thought it was pretty expensive for what I ended up with, not a big fan of the lacing look. Ended up with one from eBay which pops on very snugly and I think looks pretty decent. I have tried leather color dyes on other cars and those with "painted" on color don't take to it well..OK for small areas but a whole steering wheel rim would look uneven, different color tones. The dyes work alot better on the vat dyed leather that the Brits are so fond of.
The grey finish is wearing off on my 05 Limited's steering wheel, as is the textured/grain at the 12 o'clock position.
Anyone else have this? Fixable with a recover or dying?...
Had mine repaired with a sub who works at the dealer's lot by appt. He did an area from 6 o'clock to 8 o'clock in 20 minutes (including drying time) for $40. Couldn't tell where it was fixed.
