Question Leather worn down on steering wheel

My leather steering wheel has taken a over 130,000 miles of abuse and is starting to wear down. The leather is now quite rough and I was wondering what i should put on it to buff it back to how it was.

Can anyone recommend anything?

I don;t really want to fork out for a new one.

thanks!!

You can always upgrade it... I have a momo mod 07 steering wheel... loooove it...

All depends if you want the stock look... if so... go with the above.

nah, i don;t like the look of those covers, plus if i'd rather keep the wheel standard and not get an aftermarket one, it'll make the car look more original.

the re-leathering sounds good, but i bet it'll be nasty on the price.

i was hoping someone knew about something like a boot polish for steering wheels. I'ts like my wheel is like a old scuffed pair of leather shoes, and whenever i polish my old shoes they come up like new.

If i used boot polish though, i guess it'll come off onto my hands for months after ; (

i might try black leather furniture polish tho

You can probably have a leather place (like the one that would releather it) treat it.

Look into http://www.leatherique.com

Their product is made for the seats, but I'm just trying out an idea.
