It's a Nardi Sport Rally dish wheel. Fraid it's not in your budget though.

And I only have two tweeters. Not my fault someone else built the car with big holes in the doors.

Daikei hub, 350mm Momo Monte Carlo, 1" eBay spacer (I think it's LTB). I've driven a car with the eBay wheel and it was the shittiest feeling wheel in the world. I've driven a car with a Nardi and it was nice, but too small IMO (320mm). I like my big wheel.

Basic question... what does everyone do about the Airbag Light? Can you slap on one of these adapters,and wheels and roll on... Remove a bulb.. Or are most removing the entire airbag assy?

On the 90-93 you can just cut off the connector and connect the wires together. On the later cars it requires a resistor. You can remove the battery backup and cut the line to the light as well.

$150 dollar setup....not cheap, but not expensive and have had for over two years.
As for the airbag light, I used a jumper harness from R-speed, but then finally 86'd the whole AB assymblies and computer.

is that so? I added the 3-ohm resistor to mine....it's only off half the time.


I kept my stock connectors, they are shoved under the plastic boot cover.

I had a spare clock-spring so I just cut them off.

I got the MOMO Team(280mm)steering wheel,MOMO hub & NRG slim quick release.

When it comes down to steering wheels & hubs,don't cheap out,spend the extra money on something that is good quality.Remember,the steering wheel is the only thing that allows you to steer the car,how important is that?

^Not true, I steer with my right foot all the time... more often now that I'm back to 185tires.

Good advice all, keep it coming. I take it the adapters from just about any company are universal and will fit other brands. For example, if I buy a Momo hub, can I put a Sparco wheel on it?

Sparco and MOMO are the same pattern. Grant uses something unique. Tekniq is different again. So watch what you buy.

Tekniq uses a 6 bolt patter, the spacing is just different. I've got a Tekniq hub in my car with a MOMO adapter/spacer for my Sparco wheel. The Tekniq hubs are shorter than normal, since they are made to work with their own quick release.

My Daikei hub came with a connector. Airbag light comes on at startup, just like normal, and stays out the rest of the time. Easy peasy and I didn't cut anything.
