Default Sparco Steering Wheel

Does anyone know where I can purchase this wheel in Australia?

It's a Sparco 368 Suede Black Steering Wheel. I want one for my GC8.



Any help would be appreciated.

Jason.

Dont buy a suede one for your road car unless you plan on wearing gloves every day... The sweat from your hands will trash the suede within weeks. They are really only suited to competeition cars where the drivers wear gloves...

Doesnt your car have airbags? Cant remove airbags if fitted from factory or you are looking at yet another yellow sticker, and a fine I believe.

Go Gear sell OMP wheels (as well as lots of other OMP stuff). It may be worthwhile going there and seeing if there are any OMP wheels you like.

If you have your heart set on the Sparco I know that maximum MS can get them in.

Hmm good advice guys. I don't care so much about the yellow/fine because there are many other things on my car I'll get a sticker for before they work out a airbag is missing. I'm just sick of the stock MOMO one, it's like steering a boat, so big and annoying.

Broomy, I won't be driving my GC8 as a daily anymore so the sweat wouldn't affect me, but cheers for the heads up anyway, it never crossed my mind to start with.
