New Steering Wheel

Recommended Posts

pd331

I have a 99 Response and want to upgrade my stock steering wheel to something closer to what the '08ish Malibu's have with the Isotta wheel. Found a great leather/carbon racing wheel with 6 hole pattern that is 320mm - Is that going to be big enough?? Does anyone have the Isotta wheel that was on the Malibus of a few years back? What is the width of that wheel. Not interested in the newer "one spoke" steering wheels. Link to wheel I'm looking at below....

FWIW - on my 08 - the chrome didn't hold up - it was a long warranty fix - actually that held true for most of my chrome - not certain why, but Malibu did eventually come through...

Just watch the center emblem

I upgraded my wheel to a pre-08 Malibu wheel from Isotta. It is called the Isotta "Vallelunga". I bought it used on ebay and have been very happy with it. If you get a genuine Isotta the quality is awesome, but they aren't cheap. The 08-10 wheels are the Isotta "Zulag", and the newest single spoke is the Isotta "Vista" (11'-12'). I think the first two are homeruns, but the Vista is one ugly beast IMO.

Here's the Vallelunga on the Sunsetter...

I have a 06 V-Ride. You had asked about the size mine looks like the first pic of martinarcher + or -. Mine is 13 1/2 inches. Hope that helps.

What you mean, your 05 is almost an antique now! Just kidding, mine was built in 05 too.
