I got 'em off eBay, and they were colder than the surrounding plastic when I got in the truck this morning...? I honestly can't recall, but I think they are aluminum. I don't rest my hands there, so I don't know how they get so worn down.the brushed aluminum steering wheel inserts are they real aluminum or the painted plastic. mine are a painted plastic and got some wear marks on them. wouldn't mind replacing them if there was a nice set out that wouldn't do the same thing in a few years.
Random side note: why, with a 1/2 empty parking lot, do ppl want to park right next to someone...? Couldn't even open my door fully.
Got 7th place in the 5k run. 26:33. I'll take it. I'll also take the breakfast of champions: McDonalds!
