Absolutely Yes. Flat or deep dish as i have a Rothsport quick release hub anyway.
Just got out of driving my 930 down the street to do the mail and was thinking to myself how heavy is this steering when i was parking. Meant to be.

Make 'em both.....370 and 380mm and you'll have a winner I think. I'm in for a couple of them.

YES on 380mm or 370mm!

Dish, extended hub, thicker grip, higher quality leather than standard prototipo.

Do You Want To See a 380mm Prototipo Steering Wheel - vote here!

Come on all of you, 370 vs 380 give us ALL a break, no white stitch, thicker this, thinner that, dish this, no dish, don’t wanna extended hub that, uuuughhhh

Anything over 350 is a marked improvement. Y’all got too much opinionated time on your hands (so do I)

Good point.

Yes is the answer. But with some dish...

380mm

I spoke briefly with some reps at Rennsport, they suggested it was already coming our way.
I also asked about the thick spoke carbon wheel in the new Singer DLS car. Not for sale sadly.

370mm are easy enough to find used, go 380mm please.

I've been using this 380mm Momo Gritti out of a Testarossa and it's soooo much better than a 350mm wheel. From parking lots to autoX, the larger diameter makes life a little easier. Just don't tell my friends I have Ferrari parts on my 911

Brilliant! If that story doesn't inspire Momo to give the market what it wants... Nothing will.

I really like that "holey" shifter knob also. Who makes that part ? I already went down the path of Dino 370mm steering wheels. Sorry Momo.

That's the WEVO tall SL knob.

380 with slight dish, black and fatter grip is my vote. I have the thick grip MW signature 350 momo. The thicker grip is really nice, especially if you have bigger hands. It feels way more substantial in hand.

Since I already have the extender hub, I'm not interested in additional dish.

380mm yes. Deep dish preferred. I have a 420mm VDO on right now and I love it but the 380 would "fit" the car more nicely. I'm not a big proponent of a thick rim, preferring a thinner rim.

I vote for the 380mm.

Thinking how cool it would be if Momo offered a "myMomo" option where customers could personalize their wheel (within reason): choose size, color, stitching, thickness, maybe even offer to inscribe a limited number of characters. I wonder if customers would be willing to pay more for this service... I would.

I'm sure economies of scale would work against you on something like this, but... Nike seems to make it work with their shoe line.
