Best steering wheel for auto-X and racing? I have

a Nardi wood/aluminum wheel now. Personally I

don't think it's thick enough and I don't like the

transition from wood to aluminum, it's way too

sharp. This wheel would be better in a mellower

machine with a nuetral interior.

Is there a smaller diameter thicker wheel out there

that doesn't look like it belongs in a new ricer?

And, once I find a wheel this Nardi wheel will be

available. Comes with matching shift knob and

both are in decent shape... at least a 7 out of 10.

Lastly, my car is a '68. Do the hubs and splines

vary from period to period, as with the E28

chassis?

TIA for your opinion.

Smaller diameter (e.g 13") will give you quicker response but require more effort to turn than larger wheels (e.g 15"), especially at low speeds and with fat wheels.

I have a nice leather-clad 15" Alpina/Momo I might sell trade. Email me if interested and I'll send a pic.

you might consider MOMO" 350mmChamp wheel. Good picture in BIMMER oct '98 p52. I would be interested in the Nardi for my '74 ex-Malaga/tan interior.

and it works great for me. i run 215/50r13 tires and at low speeds or standing still it is tough to turn the wheel. but at autocross speeds it's fine.

I run 225/45 13 and it is real tough at a stop to turn but so long as the car is rolling it works great!!!Another plus is that it has a pretty decent grip on it!!!
