Why not just redo it yourself with new materials a stitching kit?

I would not purchase a steering wheel from him. I do have a set of his Alcantara boots and hand brake handle pending install for my E36. The boots appear OK, but the handle needs some attention.

Never had a problem with Coby. He re-did my ZCP and ZHP

You get what you get with Coby. Yeah yeah, save your pics of how great yours is. They are not 10/10 if that is what you are after. He knows it too (and yes I have seen them in person).

Ledermanz is simply the best... but European obviously.
Tainik is good with leather. Not so great with Alcantara.

There's a member here Shepott that does recovered wheels too. His look good, but his photo taking skills suck. Pricing is great with him.
You get what you pay for. Coby is great for the price. Service/turnaround is awesome, and his wraps are 9/10 as good as factory wheels.

If he cant guarantee the center stripe will be 100% straight and centered I wouldn't have much confidence in "he'll do it however you want."

Yeah, I will not consider Coby. He stitches the center stripe over the Alcantara, which looks like ass, and he can’t guarantee that stripe placement will be at 12 o’clock. Also, he does a single seam on the wheel vs four seams. I’m not paying him extra for a correctly done wheel lol.

My other car has a wheel from Shepott, and I think it’s good, like an 8/10. Pricing for SMG wheel through him is also high, but I’ll probably end up going through him since options are limited. Communication is slow bc he’s busy. The car will get swapped to manual, so I see no point in buying a 10/10 wheel from Ledermanz yet.

Don’t have time, so that’s a project I don’t really have any interest in. I still haven’t fixed my other car after hitting a coyote with it.
