just keep working it. start on the top and move around. it took me 10 mins to get mine on. keep in mind they are designed to stay tight because its your steering wheel. people can die if it isnt done right
Just like all the guys said, heat it, cuss a lot, heat it, cuss a lot and so on and it eventuallt will go on. Some of them are a b@*%$ but eventually you will get it

2007 F-150 FX4 with Toyo MT's (285-75-17) on Centerline Forged Turbine Wheels (17x8 w/4.5BS). Undercover bed cover, AF1 CAI, Husky Liners, tint, Flowmaster Super 40 muffler w/duals ran to stock location and stainless tips, Bilstein 5100's and a stubbie antenna to give me clearance to get it in the garage.
No...It's actually a .."cough!" Washsington Redskins cover I bought at a Sports Fan retail shop. It's just a universal fit cover. It is genuine leather though; actually really nice. I paid a little bit for it.
I appreciate the input. Plan is to heat and cuss until we get it. I'm pretty sure we can exchange it if it rips in the process. Thanks.

Is wetting it an option? Leather will really stretch when its wet and then shrink tight when it drys. Just a thought. Either that or wipe some LEXOL leather cleaner on it and squeeze it on while it's still damp.
I probably would not wet the cover since it will become slippery and more difficult. I really had to pull quite a bit while working it on, very tough on the bottom. Be sure you have it centered when you start because it will be a b**tch to try to align when you get it on.
You can see mine on the left. I to though it was going to rip. Good luck...
