Steering wheel cover delemma

I'm thinking of getting a steering wheel cover. Don't worry this is the leather type that you sew on, not the autozone rubber type . My problem is trying to figure what color I should get. I have two choice black/silver CF or black/red. I have a Sangria Red Focus and the interior is painted accordingly. What color do you think would best fit in my interior.


This red is a little lighter than my car.



Or should I go for this color. I do plan to put some billet type items in my car also, but they would be small and I think the steering wheel may be too much. This pic also shows how the cover looks in a focus.

Help me decide! lol..

EDIT: Oh here is my interior for reference to my color.

Just my opinion, but if the red doesn't match it wouldn't look right. If you think the silver/black would be too much, I'm a traditionalist, what about straight black?

I would get it in straight black, but with the two choices I have I can get it for less than half the price, including shipping, which makes it worthwhile.

Is there any pitch black one's with no colors? That would look nice.
Just wondering why do you need a cover?

I say go with the red. You can always repaint the dash to match the wheel is the shade is off

don't go with the red if it's not a match to the other elements of red in your interior. do not go with the black and silver in that it looks like crap. Do find a better solution to your customizing needs.

and get rid of that smelling white and sky blue thing. It's big, ugly and doesn't match your style. Get the red colored "Bug". It's cheap and it works.
