My steering wheel gets so hot in the summer heat. What do you guys do to protect your hands? I sometimes cant put my hand on the wheel for more than a few seconds.July 7, 2013 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #964977
Wear gloves.July 7, 2013 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #964978

You can throw a towel over the steering wheel before you park.July 7, 2013 9:54 pm at 9:54 pm #964980
They make protectors for steering wheels out of things that don’t get hot for this.July 7, 2013 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #964981
You own driving gloves? I was thinking about it but thought it being too much.July 7, 2013 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #964982
Wrap your hand in an undershirt, park in the shade, don’t hold the steering wheel, take the pain, leave a dish towel on top of your steering wheel when you park and it’ll be fine when you come back.July 7, 2013 10:15 pm at 10:15 pm #964983
WIY- Park in the shade. Or get a remote starter so you can turn on the AC first.July 7, 2013 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #964984
Buy a steering wheel cover. even though it seems like a warm material, it doesn’t feel warm and it’s certainly better than the hot leather of the wheel!July 7, 2013 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #964985
I know that Lexus has an option of a “cooled-stering wheel.” Never realized that someone would have a need for such a thing.July 7, 2013 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #964986
buy a hot pink fuzzy steering wheel cover- save your hands and good convo piece too!July 8, 2013 4:04 am at 4:04 am #964987
find the points that aren’t burning hot.July 8, 2013 5:36 am at 5:36 am #964988
Why not use any of the other wheels?July 8, 2013 7:24 am at 7:24 am #964989
If not for the direct sunlight, the steering wheel would probably not get hotter than the rest of the vehicle’s interior. Block the direct sunlight with one of those panels that you place behind the windshield. If you know the sun will be coming from the side, such as the driver’s side window, put a panel there too.July 8, 2013 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #964990
I bought a leopard print steering wheel cover at a yard sale for $1 and it even came with a matching cell phone case. Of course my brother refuses to drive with it because he thinks it’s “too girly”. I’ll take leopard print anytime for $1 when the alternative is buying a fancy one from the car dealership that will cost you upwards of $20.July 8, 2013 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #964991

I’d recommend a white steering wheel cover that deflects the sunlight.July 9, 2013 12:58 am at 12:58 am #964992
i found the clip of the seat belt would get hot as well.
turn on the car and ac and then step outside for a couple minute so things can cool down.
if you have a remote starter then use it prior to coming to the carJuly 11, 2013 4:10 am at 4:10 am #964993
I keep a towel in the car and use it to hold the steering wheel, I never thought of putting it on the steering wheel when it’s parked – good idea.
The other issue I have is the handle to open the car door gets really hot sometimes.July 11, 2013 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #964994
I think we should all go back to using a horse and buggy so we don’t have these issues.July 11, 2013 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #964995
keep a fire extinguisher in your carJuly 11, 2013 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #964996
I use my yarlmuke. An added benefit is that I don’t make a chillul Hashem when I cut everyone off by the battery tunnel.July 11, 2013 5:48 pm at 5:48 pm #964997
Don’t talk loshon hora in your car.July 11, 2013 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #964998
You aren’t supposed to take off your yarmulka unnecessarily. One shouldn’t go 4 Amos (or the amount of time it takes to walk for Amos) without kissuy harosh.
