That depends, if they are badly out of round, it is nearly impossible to properly repair them. It they are just hairline cracks there is an epoxy based repair kit you can buy.

Since you didn't say what year, do a search for Rimblow Buddy. They may be able to help you out.

If funds permit, I plan on having them do my 70 wheel this winter.

I think Eastwood sells a steering wheel repair kit.

Here's some pics of the cracks and repair I did on my 68 wheel...













I used this stuff, files, and some sandpaper.



It was easy.
From this point I might paint, or just cover with leather.
The center pads aren't available anywhere, those need to be reupholstered.
Good luck!
