Thumbs up JUST REPLACE THE NEW STEERING WHEEL/ FEELS SOOO GOOOD

🤔🤔🤔Before and Now✅✅✅for me, I would say the new steering wheel wins the game. It is much thicker than the OEM Steering Wheel and has the suede material at side and bottom to give more force of friction to prevent your hand slips off the steering wheel when you are in turn. Also, the bottom part is not round, it is transverse bar makes the visual impact much stronger. ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Leave your comments below about how you feel on this two steering wheel.

I have the total opposite opinion. New wheel is too thick, slippery as hell and ugly.

Heh same issue. Best option is to go with the JDM "REAL" brand wheels, which are actually shown in Lexus showrooms and GR Garages over there.

yeah looks sick, I want the same one. I've got Alcantara and carbon all over the interior so that'll match those pieces well. My hands are fairly big too, so I've been wanting a thicker rim since I bought the car

I'm also in the first gen camp. I do not like the feel of the new steering wheel. The aftermarket replacement looks ok, but that suede is going to turn to grease before you know it.

Best steering wheel is the one with zero buttons. OG scion FRS steering wheel is great years and many miles later.

I saw both pictures, definitely not interested in greasy suede or slipper carbon fiber when I'm trying to correct oversteer.

Yeah not a fan of the overly thick steering wheels, but i would maybe get my OEM steering wheel re-done with better materials. It's starting to peel sometimes and kind of "pills" when its cold outside.

Some people like the feel of a thicker shaft in the hand.

We have no idea how thick a shaft the moderators prefer.
