Have you looked at the "Ponzi Deep Dish" wheel? Or how about a billet aluminum one?

Try seaching on the Jegs or Summit site for the Ponzi wheel. Here are a couple of links to some sites offering Billet steering wheels. As I recall, Colorado Custom had the largest, coolest, most expensive selection.

Cord,

You are the man!! I really like the fire wheel at coloradocustom. Check it out and tell me what you think with a wrap or no wrap?

I know the one you are looking at. That thing is a work of art! I have mixed feelings on wraping it. The wrap is leather and may not like the rain. I know they offer to use your material, which would allow you to use a marine vinyl. I also feel that vinyl and leather can become polished and slipery, so I actually prefer one of the foam rubber wraps-which naturally isn't available! Soooo, I'm basically undecided. Sorry.

Cord,

Thanks for the input, you've helped a ton!! I'm thinking of eaving it unwrapped but afraid it would get too hot. You think so? I'm never out in the rain though.

FOUNTAIN525SC, I like purple, with possibly some chrome of sort in the center tab to tie in with the chrome gauges and throttles, when we did my dash we tried all different color wheels and to me that just looked the best, its all personal taste I guess, check it out if you want. www.activethunderboats.com go to latest news and hit RADIOACTIVE, you will see the dash and the anodized throttles and gauges, the wheel is actually rubber, but matches perfectly. have fun

JASSMAN,

I've been looking at your AT since your post, it looks amazing. I'm really considering the "Fire" wheel with a purple or no wrap from colorado custom. Take a look if you get time at their site if you get time and let me know what you think. It's posted above.

Twinn29,

I do still have the wheel. It is equiped with CRT if you need that. Let me know!!
