Mazdaspeed D-Cut 340mm. on a JDM FC3S hub adapter


Another MS D-Cut I used to have. I sold it when I found my current all-black D-Cut. The red/black looked beautiful... but didn't really fit my all-black interior.


A Mugen wheel I sold to a guy in San Francisco. His car later made it into Honda Tuning... so this wheel made it into the magazines


A deep dish Sparco Racer wheel that I ran for a few years.... for sale ....cheap!

How much for the Sparco, Randy?

Right now I run a Nardi 330mm wooden Classico (no pics yet).

EDIT: I'm sorry, Jesse...way too early in the morning. I'll send you a PM

Mazdaspeed Limited Edition 360mm Round Leather mounted with Daikei hub boss, polished steel bolts, genuine red Mazdaspeed horn button.

I got it to match my Mazdaspeed tall dimples shift knob
and because I wanted something that was genuine RoadsterJDM. I've got a Nardi Classico that I can swap back and forth. Sometimes I like the wood and a white ball shift knob, other times I like the Mazdaspeed setup. Steering wheels, like regular wheels, clothes, and girls, it's good to have a few and switch back and forth depending on your mood.

Good to see those polished bolts found a good home :wink: :wink:

I love the Mazdaspeed leather shift knob. Too bad they had to discontinue it. I have the MS carbon knob on my car- and it feels kind of light.

There's a Mazdaspeed DIMPLES knob??? :shock:

Well here's my wheel, and the reason for my shock...MS Dimples steering wheel. Note the Mazdaspeed carbon fiber ring that came with it! It also has a leather cover for the center, I forgot to take pics today ](*,)



A close up of the trim ring:

Momo Drift Steering Wheel (350mm) - $163





I got this wheel because of the slightly smaller diameter and the also because of the deep dish. It definitely freed up a lot of leg room which made heel-toe shifting at my drift events a lot easier. It also matches my Momo Start Seat.

Bit of an old picture (pre-turbo install), but this is my ATC wheel. Was put on the car by whoever owned it in Japan, and it's a great wheel - perfect size (350mm IIRC) and really nice thickness.

13 inch Moto-Lita Mark IV, because ever since I saw one on a super 7 as a child I fell in love with the wheel!

Can you say rice? I kinda hate the blue, but the wheel was on there when I got the car. Its actually really comfortable, but Ive been looking at Momo Pilota D cut wheels on ebay.

http://imagehost.vendio.com/bin/imag...ta_2_Black.jpg

Although I really like those 2 deep dish sparco/momo wheels posted above. More legroom is always a plus but it seems like the wheel would sit really close to you then? Id like to hear some feedback on them.

Dang- you guys in the islands always get the rare Mazdaspeed gems!

You know- I believe there was another spokes cover which was designed for the 'dimples' wheels. It has dimples all over and no hole opening for the horn. That one would match your dimples wheel better.

In other words- you should just give me that smooth spokes cover

Rob, that Canadian wheel has never looked better. I'm glad that someone is able to provide a review on American Stitches. I discovered their site a while back and was considering either them or AGLA to redo an old Mazdaspeed wheel I had. I ended up selling it in favor of the one that was brand new (shown in my post above) so I never followed up on it. How much did the retrim cost you? What stitch pattern did they use? Did they give you a choice of patterns?

Mine came w/ the Canadian car (imported it myself)...lots of paperwork and pre-greasing the skids w/ the border agents prior helped.

American stitches was awesome...fast turn around and better than OEM quality. A bit pricy: $321 w/ shipping both ways but superb quality. They had several choices for stitching, colors, etc. but I just went basic black/black w/ standard stitching.

Here's their website: clicketh

Now about that MS wheel center....it looks like it would work w/ my wheel. Where do I get one?! :!:

I've thought about the same wheel... It's not real leather, for what thats worth...

I have an eBay special, $25 for a no-name brand wheel.

Looks ok, but isn't great. The top part is pretty bad, moves easily.
I'll probably replace it with a Sparco Ring in leather, not suede.

I just re-read the description. It has real leather in the hand grip areas. Everything else is leather grained stuff.

The MOMOCORSE Pilota 2 Steering Wheel has the same features as the Pilota 1 (CNC center, urethane rim, leather inserts) with the exception of the flat bottom. This design feature allows for maximum leg clearance and an aggressive, race look.

the leather cover for the spokes is called a "crash pad".
