I also looked on youtube and there are several different stitches you can choose from.
I saw one video posted by a woman that does it for a living and she said she can stitch up a wheel in less than two hours.
Sounded simple enough (except it took me NINE hours to do it)!! And you can't drive the car with two loooong pieces of twine, two needles and the unfinished part of the cover hanging from your wheel while you are completing the job.
So choose the stitch you like carefully because you will be doing it for quite awhile.
The hardest part of the job is when you get to the spokes because the distance across the visible part of the spoke is different than around the back of the spoke. I managed to stretch the back and double up two of the front holes with fake stitching around the visible and back side of the cover at the spokes.
The finished product looks good and feels much better than the sun damaged part of the actual wheel.
