Steering Wheel Options for 5th gen

What are my steering wheel options? I want something that is OEM honda, and that i will still have an airbag. other than the obvious s2000 and JDM Type S. what are my other options? ITR, maybe? EP3? pictures and writeups are appreciated.

Re: Steering Wheel Options for 5th gen

DC5R wheel fits, because I've seen it done.

Bustr was saying something about it being 2 stage airbag, rather than our 1 stage. So whether or not it will actually work I'm not sure.

However I think the DC5R wheel would be a safer option in that respect, because the S2K has such a different seating position to the Prelude, the airbag release would be designed around that seating position. This would possibly cause great issue with the different seating position in the Prelude. Not sure, I've asked before on a number of forums, and nobody seems to know.

Re: Steering Wheel Options for 5th gen

i had thought about that too about the seating position with s2k wheel. because i have sat in a couple of s2k's and it is alot different. is the DC5R and the EP3R the same? because they definately look it. i kinda think the s2k wheel looks too big and gauky in a 5th gen but its def an improvement over our stock wheels.

what are you talking about? i am asking what factory honda steering wheels will bolt right up to a 5th gen factory hub with working airbags. i am not talking about aftermarket stuff.

no because some just wont bolt right up and others the airbag isnt single stage. the catch is the airbag.
