What is everyone with after market steerings ruuning, Brand, size?
Im running this Grant. http://www.grantproducts.com/grant.fm$retrieve?seqnum=125046&html=grantdetail
Is it Aluminum? Don't want to spend good money and get one that will start to rust over the years.
Grant for me too. I have never seen one get rusty.
I have the grant one thats smaller then s stock steering wheel. I just swapped it out for a stock just because I like the extra leverage of the stock size
so if you do get one, get one that is stock size.
My experience was the opposite... I didn't like how honkin' huge the factory one was... so I got this Grant wheel..
... and never looked back. Small wheel doesn't bother me at all. I have hydro assist, maybe that makes a diff.
yep thats the same wheel I got.
I have hydro assist also, dont get me wrong with the grant wheel it turns easy but with the bigger stocker it feels like I have more control since its easier to turn.
I got one of those small grant ones. It just takes forever to go from lock to lock. Other than that I like it.
another thing I like about my Grant is that its significantly thicker than the stocker... just fits my hands better than the spindely-thin stock one.
i am using this fine piece of aluminum for a steering wheel.
I ran a grant in my 77 PU, ... why, I have no idea. (I blame it on youth)
Now days, it's stock for me. My 84 K5 was stock with a wrap, and my 89 is fine the way it is.
I run the same Grant as jekbrown , only in silver spokes . Comfortable , and my my beer gut slides out of the truck easier if I forget to use the tilt column
Thanks everyone, I think I will get one of these.
That's pretty much the one I had, except mine had wood on the outside, or top portion of the ring.
I didnt like one on my 86 so I got the newer style off a 89 I like it a lot better
My truck had another grant it when I bought it, but IIRC the center was chromed and rusting. It was also only like 13" in diameter, it was too small, the 15 is about right, IMO.
I had this one on my first car, I liked it.
I still have the wheel I ran in my 82 and it will be going into my 90 as soon as I can get an adapter.
It's a Momo Fighter. 13.8" with leather wrap and I believe the center is Titanium.
how about this one??
I'm going to use one like this for my blazer.
