Show me (please) your steering wheels!

Hi guys - while I am waiting for my front brake rebuilt bits to arrive I had the time to stop and notice that I really do not like the steering wheel that the PO put on the car. Funny how I didn't notice that while I was driving and thinking "holy cow this thing is FAST".

Anyway - anyone have some ideas to share? Original wheels? Later OEM ones? Are they all interchangeable? Thanks for humoring a newbie.

Thanks!

I personally like the Momo Mod7 because of the deep dish it provides. It puts the wheel closer to me.

I have a 993RS wheel. It's basically a MOMO with a cover over the center. It requires a MOMO adapter.

I really like it:

I found one new in a box in the classifieds. You can still buy it from any Porsche dealer or our host. Part number: 993.347.084 80 8YR. Pelican Parts - Automotive Parts and Accessories - Porsche & BMW

Looks like it's $368 now. It's gone up in price since I got mine a few years ago. You will need a MOMO hub to fit it to an early 911.

What do the original wheels look like? I know seems like a silly question, but the searches on the forum usually bring up non-factory wheels.

Thanks!

I think this one is called the 930S wheel. OEM versions have the crest embossed into the leather, I believe aftermarket has the coloured crest
