I'm one of those somewhat sweaty hands guys (not so much though as to be embarrassing) so I'm always moving my hands around the steering wheel for a cool comfortable spot, plus I don't want to discolor my black leather wheel. I'm just wondering if any of you guys wear driving gloves? While I don't particularly care for the look, or maybe the "stigma" of a driving glove guy, I would admit it might not be so bad. I am a form follow function kind of fellow. Just curious, that's all. Thanks.

I don't wear gloves when I shoot, but always did when riding, figuring my hands were going to be the first thing to hit the ground.

When I had my Jaguar F-type I was a member of a Jag forum (between my Hellcat and the current Redeye in my garage). Same topic and the gloves at the site attached were all the rage. I never felt I fit in with the crowd there. I missed the mental patients I get to interact with here!

I don't wear driving gloves in the car...always wear armored gloves on a bike. I remember reading a piece in a motorcycle mag that had a title something like "How much blood can you lose from your palms". That was after a piece that stated "Don't become that odd stain on Route 80". Gloves, helmet and leathers...always on a bike.

If my hands sweat, I'd consider it a good option when driving a 700+ HP car in a spirited manner.

Them damn hoses give me blisters after 3 days of riding. Blisters there and a few other places. Two many blue pills will do that in more ways than not eating for 3 days.

No gloves in the car, but sometimes on the bike. I like a set of half gloves for hot days, if it is more cool up here, then it gets more serious.

Never in a car, even during Auto-X and whatnot back in the day. 100% of the time on the bike. (and armor)

Not for normal driving, but I fully understand your thoughts. When I traded in my last 20 year old DD truck with a leather steering wheel, the leather on it was "end of life", and while my HC isn't a DD, I want very much to avoid that with this car.

When I have taken my car to the track, I've worn gloves and am glad I did. They were new, clean gloves and I believe it was helpful to keep the steering wheel clean from my hands that did get sweaty.

@BULL yup exactly. My dd truck has a leather wheel thats down to the plastic core in spots due to the leather being worn away. While my hc is not a dd by any means I would hate to mess it up.

Please don't be one of those glove car people. Next you will be driving wearing a scarf and hat.

From a former racer, dont use gloves with metal studs on the palms. Im thinking thats not what you meant but just as an fyi Ive seen these and during a crash when youre naturally trying to slow down by extending the hands out, those studs get hot and burn your hands.
