re: After market steering wheels

If you have an airbag steering wheel, then no one I know of makes aftermarket wheels for them. The liability is to great and manufacturers shy away from them.

None other than Ford or salvage yards.

You may be able to find a "custom" steering wheel, but they will be expensive.


Is yours peeling off around the ring or center?

Re: After market steering wheels

WAIT, I found some that say for 84-13 Mustangs, which is news to me as you couldn't find anything a few years ago. I guess they overcame their problems with producing them.

Note: You will lose the air bag protection using these steering wheels.

You can get "wheel skins" or leather covers for the ring.


The website says they will, click the link I provided and take a look.


No, I would prefer to keep the airbag protection if the car already had it.
I had an accident and hit a steering wheel once with my chest. The seat belt locks failed. The docs said if I had hit it any harder I would have likely died from a ruptured aorta. I'd kind of like to avoid that possibility. I got off with some spectacular bruises and a few cracked ribs.

Yep, It wasn't my turn yet.
Didn't do my truck much good though.


A Ford Racing cover would be ok, but I find a lot of those to be to bulky and uncomfortable. I prefer the thin leather covers on the steering wheel and shifter handle if possible.

A cross pin in the rear end broke and locked up the rear wheels, went off road and hit a pole and a ditch.
