I use the Lexol leather cleaner which does a great job of cleaning the dirt and grime out of the wheel, and then I condition with Lexol leather conditioner. Any good leather treatment should work though. Don't use too much or you'll make a mess.

I use the cleaner every other month. It really isn't necessary to do it even that often.

Conditioner I use once or twice a month. More often on the driver's seat and steering wheel to keep the leather soft since it gets used the most.

Oh I see.. It is not necessarily a 2 step process then..

If you clean, you should definitely condition afterwards. Otherwise, just condition.

The best stuff to use is Leatherique (www.leatherique.com). They are expensive, but their products are the best I have every used and I have tried every leather conditioner/cleaner out there (better than Lexol). I even had an old leather jacket that somebody gave me that was as hard as cardboard, but after a few coats of their Rejuvinator Oil, that thing was like new. When I showed the jacket to my friend that gave it to me, he wanted it back because he was suprised that it looked brand new again; I kept it though. Another friend of mine who has a '98 740iL has used Leatherique since she purchased the car and her seats still look just a good as the day she got the car with very little wear, if any, showing.
