Nardi Deep Corn 330mm.. Pure sex to me.

i dont bother with aftermarket wheels like these, mostly because i feel they look cheap and tacky, do most of them actually have a weight benefit?

bring on RS1800 leather wheel!

Only just seen this! :lol: Cheeky, but partly true, hence the gym these days and trying to eat "right" :red: :lolz:

I think if you actually had a proper Nardi aftermarket steering wheel, Petrol, you would change your mind. It's not about weight, it's about grip and "feel". They really are so nice to hold :) and they look 8-)

Oh yeah, expect to pay around £250 for a nice wheel and high quality boss.

I like these: but this is 350mm and I want 330mm

OMP Corsica is quite nice too

Yes, had to get pictures of the wheels in my car as I'd want to get a decent idea of what it would be like :)

The drawback, and quite an important one is that I would lose my air bag. There's a lot to consider. I breifly chatted with Des about it at Sixfields. Ultimately I think it depends on my usage of the car and how many track days I plan to do in 2012+
