Steering wheels??

Sup everyone, I'm new to preludes. Just picked up a 97 manual. I would like to change my steering wheels (fading). Any suggestions? I'd like a quick release or stock s2k?

Re: Steering wheels??

the AP1 wheels go on fine without any problems. AP2 wheels wont work because of the dual stage airbag or something along those lines

Re: Steering wheels??

I'd take the AP1 over aftermarket. I just can't justify myself driving my car daily without an airbag. I'd even have it if the airbag didn't work. Having a somewhat metal steering wheel is asking for your head to be smashed to it. Just my opinion.

Those AP1 steering wheels are nice but somewhat hard to find for a decent/cheap price.

Re: Steering wheels??

I'd get the AP1 wheel. You can probably find one for $250-$300. You're looking to spend at least double that with a quality short hub/quick release with a quality racing wheel on it.

And I was just wondering, what stock honda steering wheels will fit on the 4th gen?

Re: Steering wheels??

Good point guys. Definitely need to consider air bag when switching steering wheel. I'll just deal with the fading sw and use the funds for pspec/jtc ss..

Are you in a 5th gen? If so which nrg short hub did you use? (part number? or what the vehicle it was specified for) I looked on the NRG site and Weksos and they are unclear as to which one will fit a 5th gen.
Thanks
