STEERING WHEEL BUYER’S GUIDE

— Here are the top aftermarket models you should know about —

The first time you drive with an aftermarket steering wheel, you’ll want one. Stronger, race-quality wheels give you more direct steering feel without the flex some stock wheels have and the added style of high-quality materials and finishes. Aftermarket wheels also offer more comfortable shapes and grip surfaces. Most aftermarket wheels require adapters for fixed installation or quick-release attachment. We collected the most impressive wheels from the top brands so you can grab the one that works best for you.
