Question Heated Steering Wheel??

Well I live, well Winter central. Winnipeg MB Canada to be exact. City's nick name is "Winterpeg". Very easy in January it can be -40F

So the hunt is on for a heated steering wheel. I googled my azz off and only found ones for vehicles or golf carts. Which wouldn't work cuase the heat would never transfer threw the mitt/glove.

So asking if anyone has come across a "real" heated steering wheel or maybe to some of the custom manufactures on here to come up with one.

yes I could just buy a hard/soft enclosure but its just the hands that get cold holding the wheel.

maybe heated gloves would be easier to find and keep your hands warm while not on the machine. then you can get the heated vest that plugs into the cigarette plug.

Yes I have considered that but if anyone else wants to drive have to give them my gloves.

Ya that is the golf cart one I was referring too. I just can't see that being hot enough to transfer heat threw a mitt or glove. Plus they don't mention who is the manufacture either.

Just can't see it being good when ATV handle bar warmers are 100.00+

I only paid about $30.00 for the bar warmers for my atv's in the past and they worked great, most of the time could only run them on low.

You could look into heated steering wheels from cars that ran them but they aren't going to be waterproof and don't think they'll get any hotter since you usually don't drive a car with gloves on.

I've got a golf cart dealer near me but just haven't had time to get over there and see what he knows about the covers.
