I did a leather steering wheel cover from tan/natural to black. I used Fiebing's leather dye purchased on Amazon. My job was obviously smaller than yours. I thought it worked great for my project but with a larger surface and potentially a more buffed/shiny surface the results might be different. I would try it on a similar leather first or in an area which is not visible.

SEm and leatherique have quality dyes for leathers. Just remember to prep it really good.
