Do you guys have any trick to stop leather from cracking?

I've used solely Adam's leather cleaner and conditioner products on my steering wheel. Unfortunately, it has still cracked on the bottom side of the wheel. Because it is only 3 years old, I feel this was a manufacture defect in the leather, but I bought it aftermarket from GM, so I'm SOL as far as warranty goes.

So do you guys know of any products or adhesives that will stop the leather from cracking worse?

pics are helpful..... If it hasn't riped, rather just some wrinkles in the leather, try using a mild conditioner and then heat up the leather with a heat gun to relax the leather and smooth it out. Make sure you keep your distance with the heat and move it around....
