you might need to be more specific...
is the wheel torn, or worn etc?
i'd say 99% of auto trimmers could restore or repair a steering wheel for you...

More just after a rough price of what someone has paid, Id say his like mine is just that the red/blue bit is worn off a bit down to the actual leather.

You could try one of the leather repair places like Leather Doctor or something. That is the cheap way, but it will wear again.

Best way is to either buy a new one or get the wheel reupholstered.

For melbourne, try PM grub73 on here as he runs an upholstery business. Or Auto Image Interiors in Thomastown have a good rep, and have done Momo wheels in the past. They have access to factory fabrics too.
