Default Ebay Steering wheel.

I searched, I found maybe 2 semi-relevant threads. But you know the route our threads usually take. I just bought a Glock 30 and I am low on funds, but my steering wheel is crumbling, residue got on my blues and i got bitched at, and I am definitely not one who cares what it says as long as it works. CR.net can worry about that ****. Anyways, will I die and go to ricer hell if i put this on my car? It IS certified JDM, and if I found one with black stitching, it would be far less homo. Plus less fabulous horn buttons can be had at a modest price.

It's hard to go wrong with a steering wheel but I wouldn't trust the hub without thoroughly stressing it to see if it's up to the job, because it's quite an important one.

I bought this one from ebay Miata deep dish.
I am using it with a momo hub and I like it. It flexes a little though.

What hub did you use brainy? I remember seeing you posting about your wheel before but can't recall what you said about your hub

$20 shipping...

If it fits, it ships. No way that should cost $20.

Have had same wheel combo for 2 years now too. Solid cheap hub, mine arrived yellow tho. I took vinyl paint and painted the yellow band grey to blend in, added a sharpie to color the yellow threads. turned out ok. after 2 years there are a Few threads pulling out. But Honestly a good combo for the $$ gives good room around the wheel too for knees and space. Ide buy another....

Don't buy a cheap wheel. I've had 3 of them and they all flexed like mad. Momo = win.
