The steering wheel on your vehicle is used to control the movement of the car. For example, when you turn the wheel left, the car will turn left and vice versa. The steering wheel is connected to the vehicle by the steering column. Normally, the horn is located in the middle of the steering wheel.

Optional Controls on the Steering Wheel

As time has gone on, more and more features or controls have been added to the steering wheel. This allows the driver to safely control multiple functions without having to take their eyes off the road. One of these buttons is the cruise control. The cruise control will set and change the speed. Other buttons on the steering wheel include radio and sound system controls. Most allow you to change radio stations as well as the volume right from your steering wheel. Bluetooth answering systems are available on newer models of vehicles so you can talk on the phone hands free.

Reasons to Get a Steering Wheel Cover

If you are looking for a small change in your vehicle, a steering wheel cover is an affordable option that is easy to install yourself. In addition, the cover prevents damage from occurring on the steering wheel itself. Since the steering wheel is used every time the vehicle is driven, it can show wear over time. A steering wheel cover will prevent the wear from showing, and will keep the car in better condition if you decide to resell it in the future.

Types of Steering Wheel Covers

Leather is one of the most popular materials chosen for a steering wheel cover. It is attractive and provides a strong grip. They are also easy to clean with soapy water and a soft cloth. Wooden steering wheel covers are also available. These clip into place and provide a unique design element to your vehicle. Rubber steering wheel covers are made for those who need extra grip on their wheel. Synthetic mesh steering wheel covers come in many different colors, and are easy to install.

The steering wheel is an important part of your vehicle. To keep it looking new, consider purchasing a steering wheel cover. The cover can complement your interior or you can choose a color to stand out. When purchasing a vehicle, check out the controls on the steering wheel as these will make driving easier.
