GT500 Steering wheel on order.

Justin

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
I ordered a GT500 steering wheel to put on my boss. the right spoke on my boss wheel is scratched and you cant buy just the replacement spokes for the boss (I tried got one for a GT wrong color) and a new boss wheel is 240 plus shipping but the GT500 wheel is 162 plus shipping and I think it looks better. I will post pics once I get it installed. it will match my shift boot and parking brake boot that are also for a GT500.

Here is where I bought it in case anyone is interested. And no I am not selling the stock one I will be hanging onto it just like all the other stock parts I have taken off.

Once you have it, post up how you like it please. I got the Grant leather "replacement" wheel for very cheap so that is what I am running now. Prefer leather to Alcantra for daily driving but have seen the GT500 wheels and do like the look.

Thanks guys. I am not selling the stock wheel like I said in the first post.

I will let you know how I like it when I give it a few test miles

I was actually just considering a different wheel myself and I have a question: is the GT500 (or Grant) wheel any thicker? I have always felt like the Boss wheel is a little too thin for my hands.

My thoughts exactly! I would like a wheel with slightly less diameter as well.
 
Grant wheel is, from everything I can tell, the same diameter (and probably has to be to fit the stock wheel controls) but is a bit thicker and also has the "thumb rest" above the 9 and 3 position.

warning. Stay away from the grant wheel the quality is awful. feels like foam and the "leather" is just awful.

Pretty much agree. Got mine brand new for $100 and figured I would give it a shot. The leather looks like it is 25,000 miles old even though it is only been on the car for about 7500 miles.

Well got home today and opened the box for the steering wheel.....its a boss wheel....they sent the wrong part number but thats ok as a boss wheel is 240 bucks. So I installed it and sold the old wheel to my friend two doors down for his base GT. Later on I will see about getting an actual GT500 wheel. For now I will just take advantage of their shipping mistake. :)

Took my car to get something to eat I actually love to drive it now. What a difference that steering wheel makes!

looks awesome.

having my stock one leather wrapped, beefed up and custom stitched was the best money i've ever spent.
