    So would a 14 inch steering wheel be too small for one of these cars ? seems like a much better selection in the 14" size. the factory wheel is 15

    I reduced my ragged out woodgrain steering wheel to 14" diameter. It should be no problem with power steering and definitely harder to steer without power.

      I did mine this year. I think it looks good. A lot more comfortable then the old skinny 16", 4 1/2" dish wheel. The new one is actually 13.75" and it helps out nicely with the jittery p/s. CIMG1378.JPG CIMG1380.JPG

        Thank you fellas ! I really think I can benefit by going to 14". seems like I need more leg room it this car for some reason.

        Well...not sure what to say. They sent me the wrong wheel. I ordered a 14.5” wheel but they sent a 16”. The more look at it the more I like it. I am thinking I might keep it. I really like the way it drives. I love the thin rim.

          I really like this one , it would fit nicely with the rest of my dash and interior theme. Is there a name or series for this Grant wheel? Mocajava

            Hey Moca, I just saw that you responded to that thread. I forget the name of the series but I think the number was 1020 or 1040. I believe I got it thru Summit. Edit: Just looked it up. It's Corsa GT #1020.
