How about getting some dishwashing gloves? Most are rubber and are not insulated. They would grip the wheel very well.
True, they won't have the MB logo on them but with a steady hand, you could take a Marks-A-Lot and do it yourself.
You could wheel up to your school or where ever you and your friends hang out, screech on the brakes and turn the wheel and skid sideways to a stop, showering onlookers with gravel, roadkill, and dog droppings while a cloud of dust and whirlwinds catch up to you and you could casusally saunter out of your make-believe Maserati, cigarette dangling loosely from your lips, swagger a bit, remove your driving goggles and with great aplomb and fanfare, slowing, tantalizingly, with macho sexual innuendo, peel off your flaming pink dishwashing gloves. Non-insulated, mind you. Terribly long run-on sentence but you get the idea.
Now, I have given you an idea and I expect credit for when you complete your new image with driving goggles.
Google for goggles and let me know what you come up with.
We could all take up a collection for your dishwashing gloves and driving goggles.
They would be cheap, too. What say?
P.s. I am having a bit of fun at your expense but hey, you are a happy banana, right?

Now.. to answer the original question... Wheelskins makes an excellent pair of driving gloves. Do a websearch, and you'll find'em. Wheelskins.
I did run across those, they do appear to be nice. My only complaint is the velcro, I am not the biggest fan, but I guess if they did it correctly so that non of it irritated your skin, and I assume they do otherwise people wouldn't like them, then they could be good gloves. The only other noticable difference between Wheelskin and Siegler and Co. is that Wheelskin uses deerskin and Siegler and Co. uses lambskin, can anyone explain how leathers differ? Now to make sure, it says measure around the palm, it means to measure on this reed line correct:
If so I will be a size extra large, doesn't suprise me.
I actually hope many people don't see me in driving gloves, I get sick of hearing these people who say, oh Mercedes aren't sporty, they can't do anything. I always tell them to get in my 300E one day and let me show them around these mountains and they usually back down, but still believe that load of shit about Mercedes not being sporty.
