"Wheelskins" brand steering wheel cover

Anyone here ever try the wheelskins brand stitch-on leather steering wheel covers? I've been thinking about picking one up since I hate the plastic steering wheel in my 2004 Edge. They are pricy direct from the manufacturer, and I've seen other online retailers sell them cheaper.

Also, I'm a bit confused on the sizing charts. Didn't the steering wheel grip circumference get larger on the 04 rangers up from the 03? I know that my steering wheel in my old 98 was lot thinner than in my 04. Did the 2003 rangers have the "taco shell" shaped air bag, or did they still have the same type of airbag shape as the 98's did?

I'm fairly certain that I need to order the next size larger than the recommended on their website, as my steering wheel grip is 4 inches.

One other question, could someone here with an 03 model and an 05-06 model measure the circumference of their steering wheels? It would be helpful if it was the wheel from the base model or Edge. The factory leather wrapped may be a different circumference. I'm just trying to see when the change was made.

Don't worry, I'm going to get one. Just trying to decide which size and color combo I am going to order.

I thought about swapping in a leather wrapped factory wheel, but they are pretty expensive and I really don't want to mess around anywhere near the airbag.
