Does the steering wheel burn your hands?

Non SS leather wrap. Just OEM plastic steering wheel.

As the steering wheel rubs in my palms, while removing from making a turn, the rub create a burning sensation on my hands.

Is it me? Or just (super) cheap GM plastic? What have you guys done? As far as I know, most steering wheel wraps don't fit good because the OEM wheel is already thick.

Just seems like to me that you should look into some good old manual labor to toughen them up a bit and then you wont have a problem.

Mine seems fine. You can get a good-fitting leather wheel cover for $20 at Autozone, though, if necessary.

Nope. You must have some super sensitive hands.
