Default Driving Gloves.

Okay first off I'm not 100% sure this is where I should post this but I'll give it a shot anyway (Mods feel free to move it if i'm not correct)

So I'm looking at buying my own set of driving gloves. I wanted to hear everyones Opinions and Favorites. I've done some searches and read what limited Info I could find... I've also tried quite a few sets myself most of which I have no idea the name... But I did find not a huge fan of the ever popular BMW M gloves... And I have decides from all that I'm looking for a closed finger open back design in black... Leather or comparable...With good ventalation.

So far I'm leaning toward a set of the Wheelskins Deerskin driving gloves... Best price I've found on em so far is here:

http://www.dccarcare.com/wsgloves.html

Wondering if anyone had expierence with them or knew of a better price. From what i've read these sound pretty well made and good quality. But I'm always open to other opinions...

Basically just looking for a good set of spirited driving gloves that will fit.... well.... Like a glove will grip like I wish my hands could naturally.... and preferably won't stain my hands to hell

So help me out if you can and thanks for looking

Thanks mang

I actually already found those two posts in my searching...

Problem is I'm not really looking for a competition type glove. I mean sure i'd like a set but since I don't auto X anymore since i'd be in a prepped class... Don't rally/rally X my car anymore.... and only attend track days once in a great while... I think It's kind of pointless for what I need.... I'd feel silly doing sunday driving or god forbid getting pulled over wearing a set of Simpson or Sparco racing gloves (Um yeah officer just going to see my grandma) Plus from what I've seen thus far they are fairly expensive ($80+)

Thanks anyway... I'm just looking for more of a sunday driver leather glove...

But hey all suggestions are welcome. I'm still pondering....

I've never been a fan of em before but I'm just kind of poking around looking for a set lately... I'd like to get something cheeper anyway so I won't feel too crappy If I decide I don't like 'em and they collect dust

I have run and sucessfully escaped on a 'dragon' once...But I was young(er) and stupid...

Hmmm Anyone know if the OMP sport glove comes in black by any chance?

I'll ask Aerosim tomorrow

Go to your local Wilsons Leather shop and get a pair instead of the Wheelskins. They cost $25, and have the snap-button closure instead of the velcro like on the Wheelskins.

They are cheap and do the job. Or you can go the route I took prior to these gloves . . . . . .batting gloves (any brand will do - try it and you will be surprised how nice they feel)

Ohhhh I am.... I'll have to look into those...

I'll see if theres anything at wilsons I like next time.... The batting glove idea actually sounds pretty good... I never thought of that

Thanks guys!

I have some slightly used sparcos that are blue and gray if you are interested. On a different note buy gloves with seams on the outside they are soooooo much more comfortable you will thank me.

I got a really nice pair of Momo Nomex gloves with calfskin for $35. They're full length, with velcro wrist straps, and approved for racing in the US and in europe. The place that sells them is called ltb motorsports. They have three pairs for sale now on ebay, or you can just buy them from their website for $40/pair.

if you have never tried on a Stand 21 glove you are missing out. Expensive but worth it in my opinion.

I autoX with some kingdragon karting gloves I just picked up. I will never do any kind of motorsports without gloves again. There is so much more grip, with less effort. At least it feels that way. I like it

For Auto-X and Karting I use a set of OMPs.

For the street, ie. Road Rallies I use batting gloves....looks a lots less obvious to the man.

I use a set of moto-cross gloves that the local cycle shop had. Plan B is to hit the Army Surplus store to see if they have flight gloves.

There is nothing IMHO that beats a nice fresh pair of football receiver gloves. I use the Nikes, they are fastAr.

You could always just glue some sandpaper to your fingers.

CLEAN being the operative word. I forgot to change my gloves at an event last year, and managed to smear grease all over my face before realizing my error!

I rock some Alpinestars F1-T gloves. They seem nice, but I have also done the football reciever's glove thing before and was very impressed.

I've tried the mechanix glove thing and perfer bare hands... I'm gonna take a day and kick around sports chalet, try on every glove I can find...

I'm sure i'll find something snug and inconspicuous.

Thanks for all the suggestions for the motorsport gloves too, I'll be sure to pick up a set when I can afford em.

I use Simpson gloves. Their factory store is conveniently located down in Torrance...

It's always a good thing to get a chance to try them on before you buy them!
