Alcantara is the brand name of a common synthetic textile material. It has a soft, suede-like microfibre pile and is noted for its durability. Alcantara is commonly seen in automotive applications, as a substitute for leather and vinyl in vehicle interior trim.

How do i know if this cover is suitable for my steering wheel ?
Because of the car model names are different in each countries, so the car models we offer are only a reference. Please check the original steering wheel photo, make sure it match your steering wheel size and shape as well as the paddle shifters, please upload a photo of your own steering wheel while you making your order on our website, then we can double check it for you and make sure it is the perfect match. If you still not sure, please contact us.
Use any fabric cleaner, although preferably an automotive one. Spray it onto the wheel, concentrating on a single quarter at a time. Don’t spray too much – if you soak the wheel, it’ll make the Alcantara brittle when it dries out. Then take a warm, damp microfibre cloth, wrap it around that quarter and then start to work it by gently twisting the cloth: you’re trying to transfer the dirt onto the microfibre, so imagine you’re twisting a motorbike grip.Now move onto the next section. If there are any particularly grease areas such as the thumb grips, use a single finger wrapped in the microfibre to concentrate on those.Next use a dry microfibre cloth to absorb as much of the damp as possible, again rubbing the wheel to try to bring the fluffiness back.Shipment and production time?
