For Sale - Beautifully reupholstered small diameter 390mm Mercedes steering wheel
In my quest to find a smaller steering wheel than the factory 420mm school bus monster on my W460, I purchased this genuine Mercedes steering wheel that is 390mm in diameter, and had it reupholstered in black leather. It is therefore very slightly thicker than a steering wheel with original leather. The upholstery job is impeccable. This is a steering wheel that would look correct in a show car.
Before I received this reupholstered steering wheel from Europe, I happened across a new old stock one... So I'm going to keep that one, and would like to sell this one for what I have in it --- $365 not including shipping.
If you haven't tried a smaller steering wheel in your car, I think you're missing out. The 350mm Momo steering wheels are too small, in my opinion, but the smaller 390mm and 400mm wheels make a noticeable difference - you can still steer with a comfortable level of effort with big tires, and you can still see the instrument cluster, but you won't nail your knees every time you get into your Mercedes.
Please shoot me a PM if you're interested. Thanks!
Some older, some newer, all Mercedes
