Thats a pretty ugly steering wheel.

Wood is nice, the steering wheel in my dads Lexus is awesome.

MOMO Prototipo. I tried a wood wheel, it just wasn't me. Felt like it belonged on our '57 Chris Craft mahogany boat. The retro is nice too, but I opted for an all black wheel to match the interior.

Nardi Deep Corn FTW! Mine is sitting collecting dust until Bill sends me my WB hub. One of the best quality wheels I have ever seen. Looks perfect in the Miata too.

You can kill the ABS either with a DIY fix, which is easy, or some hub kits (like the Works Bell) comes with a plug and play fix.

Haha, so did I. Not sure why I said ABS. Guess I just read your post without thinking.

Nardi Sport Rally, not deep corn. the difference is the bends.


Nardi Sport Rally - 350mm Blk Perf / Blk - Red Stitch: Evasive Motorsports - PH: 626.336.3400, M-F 9am - 5pm PST

I used the RSpeed adapter that came with a resistor.

RSpeed - Miata & MX-5 Parts, Service and Aftermarket Goods

now I can use my legs in my car.

Most sites Ive seen still list the 350mm as the deep corn. I guess thats only the 330mm with the bends in the center like you said. Sport Rally it is, I like that name more anyway.

I just cant see spending that much coin on a steering wheel. I do like this though.

For most cars, the Momo will fit better aesthetically. What's your car's interior look like?

Sorry but this is a lame poll...those are two completely different steering wheels for different types of cars/ interiors.

Im confused. Where are you finding deep corn? and what does it mean?

I like this Nardi Classic - 360mm Blk / Aluminum: Evasive Motorsports - PH: 626.336.3400, M-F 9am - 5pm PST

They also have it in 330mm, what would happen if I got a steering wheel with such a small diameter?


What would be the difference between this same steering wheel made by MOMO and Nardi?

No idea what deep corn means, but it sounds dirty. You can get them for $255 shipped on ebay. For a hub, sonicmotors.com sells HKB hubs for $20 + shipping.

I bought a 350mm because I sit pretty much vertical, and close to the wheel, which means that smaller steering wheels cut off the top of the gauge cluster for me.

guess evasive doesn't got.

I think corn just means cone. there's some JDM tuner that has corn in its name. I forget which. for, you know, gymkhana.

here's a pic.
