      Style is subjective. As such, I would vote no. You have demonstrated that you are good with upholstery work. I would just wrap the rim of the steering wheel with a thin foam and then cover in leather that matches the red or black of your other upholstery work. Black would be safe; but, that red / burgundy on your door panels might be a good look on the rim. You might need to paint the black spokes on the steering wheel because shiny black spokes with a matt leather finish on the rim might not look so good.

      Just my opinion.
