What size steering wheel are you running?

I am looking to replace me steering wheel and am wondering what size steering wheel people are using (for those who have replaced stock). Right now, I have an unidentified brand, Italian made, wood 330mm (13 inch) that I want to replace. While it is sporty, it is a bit of a pain in the neck when trying to maneuver in tight spaces such as a parking lot. Looking for a compromise between sporty and functional.

350 mm is nice

what are your wheel and tire size?

fat W I D E tires with too little air makes it hard to steer also

From my experience.....the original (1970) with skinny tires was way too big. A 13 inch with even 5.5 inch rims is too small unless your either a gorrilla or moving down the road. Pick something inbetween to fit the size of your tires and the effort you want to expend when parking.

depends on many factors...BUT..

you really want 360-380 range.

imo the common 350 is a wee bit too small......

I have a few sources as they are rare and few to be had....

e me if youd like....
