Hello all, first post here as I am new. I am a Honda fan for life. Honda’s I’ve had include: 1987 Accord LXI, white with blue interior (Auto), 1986 Accord LXI hatch, Charcoal ext, grey int, 2.0 manual with FI, 2000 Civic SI, blk, B16a, 2003 RSX-s, K series. Mom had a 92 Acura Legend Coupe on rims with exhaust, haha.

Recently purchased a 2005 CRV and it had the classic Honda steering wheel separation in between the 10-2 position. Tried to find the OE wheel 78501-S9A-N11ZA, for the Lx or ex. All on backorder so I ended up finding the SE leather steering wheel 78501-SCA-G71ZA, from an 05-06 crv SE. The dealership and all of the Honda OE sites say it doesn’t fit. It fits and it’s incredible! Makes the car much safer and enjoyable. Only thing is the stereo and cruise cntl tabs on the sides of the grip required longer screws. The feel of this steering wheel is very nice. It was a little expensive but very worth it to a Honda fanatic like myself. Hope this helps someone. Cheers...

Gotta say a leather wrapped wheel is so much nicer than plastic wheels.

Yeah, when our '06's steering wheel started to wear at about 130K miles, I installed a Wheelskins-brand leather cover.

Feels great, easy $50 USD upgrade! No financial incentive, just a satisfied customer...

Agreed, the leather grip is much better than the plastic. If I were to do it over, probably would do the wheelskinz.
