Default Steering wheel recovering options within US?

My ZCP wheel needs to be recovered, but I'm not able to send it to Europe due to potential long turnaround time. Buying one outright in Europe isn't an option for me because the prices are much more for SMG wheels than manual wheels. Is Coby the only option that's based in the US? I'm not a fan of how he does the 12 o'clock stripe, so I don't want to send my wheel to him.

I bought a complete SMG wheel from a guy overseas (found him on the FB E46 page) for $350 shipped.

I opted for a thicker, flat bottom, with Alcantara on top and bottom, with M color stitching. No core cost.

EDIT: Andri Zakus Andrey is his name

Thanks. Do you have photos of your wheel? Thoughts on the quality of his work?

Here's some quick ones. Disregard the damage on the lower trim piece. Complements of the alignment shop

Thanks. I found his Instagram, and it looks like he’s done pretty much exactly what I want. Will reach out to him for pricing.

Edit: $540 + 50 for shipping. Oof!

That's pricey.

He'll do whatever you want except take more money to do a better job. He stops responding to you if you request OEM quality.

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.

So you’re not a big coby fan?
