GT Performance Steering Wheel - Better Grip On The RoadPosted in How To on January 10, 2014
Want to improve your driving experience in your older non-air bag truck or 4x4? Swap out the old factory wheel for a new competition-style steering wheel. Aftermarket steering wheels like this one from GT Performance often have a smaller diameter and usually a thicker wheel. The thicker wheel allows you to get a better grip on the steering wheel, especially for large-handed individuals. The smaller diameter requires less arm movement for the same steering action. But there is a point where the wheel is too small (no need to go handcuff friendly), and you will lose too much mechanical advantage, making the wheel harder to turn.
That's why we chose this 15-inch diameter Competition Style symmetrical steering wheel with a foam grip from GT Performance. Well, that, and we liked the design of it. Besides giving you a little more control of your older ride, a new GT steering wheel can really freshen up an interior look that might otherwise be diminished with some skanky old wheel.
