Why Type of Steering Wheel is this? Baffled..


Recommended Posts

Looks like an original Petri wheel. The odd bolt pattern is a giveaway. It should have the number ‘35’ and the “P” wheel logo stamped into the back of one of the spokes, inside by the hub.


They can fetch crazy money nowadays..

That is BMW/ Petri steering wheel with the proper phillips head retaining screws generally sold with the Euro sport package cars as well as over the BMW Parts departments.

Values today depending on condition like yours conservatively If the grip is not spinning around the wheel rim some grain left on it 650/750 +- 200.

Hi All,


I really appreciate all the comments on this one.  Whats weird is I don't have the "53" and "P" stamp on the rear of this wheel.  Take a gander....everything else looks like a Petri wheel per links/comments.  I don't want to misrepresent this wheel.  Maybe some didn't come with the stamps but I need to find out....

This one, from same seller as the 4K wheel, has no spoke markings either…



Thanks for this...I found another source that said early steering wheels don't have stamps on them.


The much loved sports steering wheel for classic BMWs, E10 2002 & E9 CS CSi & CSL in 3 different sizes, 350, 380 & 400. Read all about it.

I have one just like that but when I asked, everyone said that it was an MGB wheel     They look exactly like this with no markings     so if yours is a Petri, then mine must be as well??


Thanks, Rick

Post a bunch of pictures to validate like what I did.

But there is no validation that your wheel is a Petri, no markings.   Lot's of wheels look like a Petri but without markings how can you be 100% sure??

Can you provide links on which wheels look like Petri but are not?  I would like to compare them to the one I have. I have searched.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
