New Steering Wheel Recommendation, 91 YJ

Looking for a new steering wheel. The original stock one is a little sticky ans won't clean up. Any recommendations for an aftermarket brand? I'd like one that is close to the same diameter but the grip part diameter is a little bigger.

Thanks

Grant wheels are the best in the market. They give you a wide variety or wheels to choose from. Usually run around a $100, but you need an installation/mount kit and a horn button kit with them.

Thanks, I checked out Grants web site and if I can't find one there I'm not going to.

0III0forlife, did you keep the oem offset?

and I'm allergic to latex...

I dont have one on my wrangler yet, i do have one on my stock car tho. minus the horn kit ofcourse...lol. but add the cost of a quik-disconnect adapter, so the price is about the same.
If or should i say when i order one for my wrangler, i was looking to go with the same offset, but step down to a 12" wheel instead of the standard 14-15" wheel.

don;t forget to check momo. i have a momo i would like to put on but i need to get a jeep center button instead of a bmw one. i love the momo wheels though, used htem on all my bmws.

grants are actually on the low end of the steering wheel line up but there is nothing wrong with them. they just aren;t the best on the market.

I wish I could change my steering wheel in my e38... But my cruise control is on the oem one

I had an mtech1 and mtech2 for my e30 plus I have a momo signature edition that was made for the e21. I used it in my e21 and e30. My dad's euro 79 635csi came with a momo stock to match the stock recarros
I was jealous

I just pulled the steering wheel out of mine, cleaned it real good to get grease off, painted the vinyl and horn cap with dupont black vinyl spray paint and then sprayed the metal with chrome spray paint. Then I bought this steering wheel cover from Amazon for $14 bucks ( Amazon.com: Jeep Steering Wheel Cover: Automotive )

The end result cost me under $20 bucks and looks and feels really nice. The steering grip cover is very comfortable and had great reviews.

Niice my dad has a red 1970's bmw 2002 project that hes been working on for almost 10 years. He doesnt work on it all the time. Just tinkers with every now and then. But if you ever are in the houston area (specifically clear lake/kemah) and see an old 2002 driving around then thats him. I think hes the only one in that area that has one.

nice!!!! i have looked at 2002s and 1602s but they are so hard to find in good shape for a decent price.

my momo looks like this one, a mario andretti signature edition

with center pad


without center pad

the top wheel is my actual steering wheel, the bottom is a google image to show with out the center pad on. they are 15" with a nice thick cover so they are super comfortable. like the original poster was looking for. you can find them on ebay for less then a hundred bucks and usually 50 for the none signature edition. mine was 75 and is a 1980 model, or 78 model.
