Anybody with Alcantara steering wheel use driving gloves? If so, any recommendations? This will be for dd. Just want to protect the Alcantara. Thanks in advance!

I need to get me some, even though I'll look like a douche nozzle wearing gloves stuck in traffic lol. The real thin kind of work gloves work really well and grips great. For now I just make sure my hands are clean before touching the wheel. If I go too long before cleaning it, the alcantara will lose that soft fiber like feel and just feel like nothing. It's hard to explain, but there's nothing like going for a drive with a freshly cleaned alcantara wheel

I have a 2019 CTR (no Alcantara wheel) and always use the gloves. I have a pair of deerskin ones(like this https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/~3EAAOSwnuJcTyGk/s-l1600.jpg), tan color, thin enough, keeps my hands dry and protects the surfaces. I can even use the touch screen with them.

Before I had a Bmw 4 series GC(M steering wheel, nomal leather) and despite taking ultra care it still started to get that unpleasant shine. So I started using gloves with the CTR from day one. I just hate leaving marks, secretions all over the car.

About what others think: nobody cares... you pay the bills your choice. This is not a soccer mom's / a dime a dozen consumption car. It's something special that deserves special care.

Don't have alcantara, but I wear Pratt and Hart leather driving gloves every day. You can get them on Amazon for $24-30 USD.
