Dumb questions of the day.....on a really hot day, does the wood in the 'wood' wheel feel any cooler than it would on a leather covered wheel? Also, has anyone noticed any fading because of the exposure to the sun?
I have a wood wheel on both my RX & MDX & the wheel doesn't get hot in the summer. Here in Dallas it is nearly as hot as AZ in the summer - interior temps get up to 140 inside a closed car (based on TV reports anyway). There has been no fading on the RX - it has been thru the summer - the MDX has not (got it in OCt '01).
I believe the wood wheel feels cooler than the leather - based on actual experience last summer between the wood wheel on the RX and my leather wheel on the 99 Honda I had at that time. I like the feel of the wood - nice and smooth & cooler in the summer. Hopefully the MDX will be the same as the RX.
