Can anyone give me a review of the TRD Momo steering wheel?

Hi guys and ladies. I'm wondering if anyone has the TRD Momo steering wheel as seen here and could give me a why you like or dislike it:

I'm considering it for my next non-performance mod.

Please keep the comments to the wheel mentioned to keep this on topic.

RS1.0 comes with them. 😄
You should go find an owner here by Beaverton & see/feel it for uself.

All I can say it feel a lot smaller & thicker then stock.

I have it, fitted it myself a year ago.


Pros:
Thicker than standard wheel
Good feel in the hand
No Thumb bumps (which I like)
Good quality leather (much better than OE)


Cons:
On mine the red ring is very slightly crooked making it look off-centre (Yes that's the way we spell centre here.)


Would definitely recommend - If you haven't changed a wheel on our cars before, the clock spring is very touchy and easy to break, so follow one of the good DIYs

I have this wheel. I like it better than the stock steering wheel. I like that it has no thumb bumps. It's thicker like what above posters have said. It feels better in my grip versus the standard steering wheel. Overall, it just feels smother in your hands. I think the only con would be that dirt gets stuck in between the crevices of the leather.

Is this wheel a consistent thickness all around? I don't like how the top and bottom of the OEM is a different thickness and shape than the thumb slots.

It's smaller and thicker but I ended up switching due to the lack of no thumb rests and its slightly slippery nature.
