i actually drove to new jersey to get them (i believe exit 6 or 7 off turnpike). cost me $50 bucks. use car-part.com and search (i believe, steering wheel, 2014-2017) i had been looking for weeks. the trim pieces i brought brand new from I think partsouq.com
Thanks for the links!

this does shrink your trunk space up considerably (would say 3-4inches). but rather have the piece of mind to change flat on side of road vs wait how many hours for roadside and then need a tire shop right away.

not bad for long trips. Please update us when you add the foam.

Prices have dropped here recently. Premium gas (92 octane) is running about 3.29 and non-ETOH premium (92 octane) 3.99.

Wow, those are some high gas prices! I just filled up on 93 at the Sheetz next to my house for $2.47/gal. (Virginia)
When we did a family road trip in Nov '19, we drove from CA to AZ. Literally, the last station we saw in CA was $3.50/gal for 87 and the first station we saw in AZ, after we crossed the border, was $2.50/gal.

Not surprising as CA's state gas tax is 60.6 cents/gal (#1 in the US) while Arizona's is only 19 cents/gal (#46 in the US).

what are those pattern lines in the hydrodip, is that typical?

Also, that rebadging... could have saved the $ on that
