Steering wheel peeling

My steering wheel is peeling a little on the top. Does anyone know of some kind of compound or anything that will fill it back in? Or do I need a new wheel?

There's nothing you can do to "fix" it, but as stated, there's been some ppl that have had the wheel replaced....... Depending on you and your dealer......
Having seen this brought up(when I 1st got my car), I opted for a quality wheel cover.

Mine is peeling too on the top. I was wondering about warranty as well but didn't care to take it in yet as it hasn't been that bad.

Even if they replace it, it's going to happen again because of the material it's made from. It's a coating on the leather/?
I'd still want to get a new wheel, but protect it as soon as you get it.
 
I have a 2013 Si with 7000 miles my steering wheel is peeling on the top. I don't know why this started and i don't pick at my steering wheel. I just took it to the dealer today and they said they haven't seen anything like it but they contacted a higher up and they said they will replace it for me for free since its under warranty and that they hope it does peel/deteriorate again and if so they don't know what else to do. But at least its getting replaced. They kept saying that maybe if someone had lotion on there hand it could have ate at it but i don't wear lotion and no one else drives my car

That's ridiculous stupid. Now ever 8k I'd have to change my steering because of their poor decision of fabrication? It's a new car why must we already pay for repairs.. I'm furious.

My dealership replaced mine and told me that the peeling may have been from the lotion on my hands. So I went and purchased a wheel cover to prevent it from happening again.

Every so often, an 'unmarked/generic' version of the buddy club wheel comes up on eBay for like $150 off the asking price since it doesn't have any branding.

Oh, speak of the devil--
