    Been looking for a after market steering wheel for a 1966 Satellite. I enjoy the original wheels
    with the thin wheel and deep dish on all my cars, but the wife had a family member that did not survive an accident due too the stock mopar horn ring. Most wheels I have been looking at are 14" with a 2" dish. Any recommendations that might work or if someone that has use one.
    Really have no direction on which way to go, for performance as the wheels are smaller in diameter than stock.

      If that Grant above works, I recommend it.

      This may be more than you are interested in doing, but the 1966 Column is not collapsible and thus is really the safety issue in a collision. Going to a 1967 column will get you greater safety or even going to an aftermarket collapsible column would help. Most aftermarket columns are splined for the GM steering wheel hub but if you are going aftermarket that wont matter. The other benefit of an aftermarket column would be the availability of a tilt feature.

      I found these guys https://fssteeringwheels.com/ and bought one of their wheels. They are way stronger than Grant. And, you can remove the front and change the looks. I put one on my 69 El Camino.

      Currently they are running a Christmas sale. They also advertise via pop up window when you visit their site 10% off your first order.

      Here's my El Camino

      Here's a video on how tough they are built.

        I totally understand. That has been a huge concern for me. Will a 67 shaft work in a 66 column?

        That is an extremely clean interior on your Elk. Nice job. I'll check out the info.

          I installed the momo prototipo wheel on mine as I loved my momo on my AE86 so much, It may be because I have big mits so it feels right for me:

          I took this hub I bought from classicindustries which is meant for a barracuda, it had the proper wheel hub and it makes use of the original horn:

          and had a machine shop shave it down to this and put the momo bolt pattern on:

          then had the local vinyl shop print these for my horn button:

          All in all this project cost me about $400 to do

            EEAC1B95-75F2-44FA-A0FC-2417C052612B.png I love the Momo on mine. Johnnny Player Special. Sure would be nice to have the right Mopar designation in the center.

              I found this one at Grant many years ago but have since returned to a stock wheel.

                    How do you like the feel with a shallow dish. 14 1/2" wheel?
