Steering wheel covers for 2012 yaris SE?

my 2012 Yaris SE steering wheel leather is flaking off and it's time to do something about it. Looking for advice on steering wheel covers (e.g., brands you've tried and like, how to put it on (do you have to sew it on?), etc.).

Found a matching product from China in an Ebay page:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hand-Sewing...AAAOSwCmZZUhV8

Should I pull the trigger?

From the pic, that doesn't look bad at all.

I've always been a fan of the fat, ribbed look, so I went with this one from AutoZone.

Looks a little bigger and skinnier in the pic than it actually is. I have a good pic of it in my garage.

I have a mint urethane steering wheel I pulled out if my 14 Yaris that I would happily trade for the damaged leather wheel. I would recondition the leather wheel (which isn't a cheap process) or possibly skin the European leather wheel and have that transferred to the us/Japan style wheel.
