O.K., I want a 930 steering wheel as much as the next guy.................then I took a look at the prices. My god, out the door with adapter, crest, mounting kit, tax, license and dealer options that bad boy costs over $500 bucks!!!! Even if money weren't an object (it is) what the heck Bobby!!
I could buy a couple of Fuchs for that. Somebody bumped their head.
I'm just sayin..............

[QUOTE=Jadams1;1201280]Somebody had to post a picture of the factory one. It's damn ugly compared to the ones in this thread.

I disagree. I actually prefer the look and period correctness of the original wheels, be it the 4-spoke or 3-spoke. I think all these aftermarket wheels with the possible exception of the RUF one have it all wrong.

I can see the benefits of fitted an aftermarket wheel for some, such as improved knee clearance etc etc, but everytime I see a momo or sparco wheel I immediately think throw it away and put back there what Porsche designed.

some industrious soul might want to summarize all the different wheels posted so far -- that would prevent needless repetition & help people see what's missing...

Personal preference is what it's all about imo. I don't care at all for the RUF pictured above, and am not a fan of most of the MOMOs, with the exception of mine, which I love :

MPI Autodromo 80

Just installed a MPI Autodromo 80 in my '88 Targa. In all the threads, I am not sure I saw this wheel but found it on our hosts website. I was close to going "standard" Momo Prototipo route, but what I loved about the MPI is it is a little wider (360mm), slightly less dished (25mm) and grip is not quite as thick as a Momo, and also has nice finger indentations (small detail but is a big plus). It is very similar to Momo retro but I did not like the silver of the retro and wanted all black. The MPI is a bit pricier, but the quality is fantastic and I couldn't be happier. I hope this helps others who are unfamiliar with MPI and may want to consider something other than Momo.

I rarely pull my hands off the 10:00-2:00 position but wonder if the bare spoke models cause discomfort in extreme hot and cold.

I mean, every now and then my left hand will grace the top horn pad of my stock wheel while I reach for something.

My Momo 07, from a 996 cup car (factory engraved with PORSCHE on the R/S spoke), custom covered with Alcantera and thicker for my "big hands". Also I use an OMP adjustable extension for proper distance.
