Steering wheel opinion!

So the guy that is buying my full interior also wants the oem steering wheel I have and with the extra cash I will need a new one.
Which will you guys choose?

Boss 302 or the gt500.

Personally, I'd go with the GT500 wheel, with red stitching. Of course, I'd make sure I found the appropriate center-badge for the wheel.

Just my opinion....

This is a hard choice, I am dead in the middle with them both.
My rear seat delete is leather and my OMP racing seats are microsuede.

I get that. For me, I'd avoid a micro suede steering wheel since hand oil and sweat would mess it up, over time. But again, that's just me.

True leather would be more durable

Haha yea but I get what the guy means because he has a base 11 and the steering wheel is not the prettiest, might as well get the whole set leather. And I am not complaining

Alacantra great if you wear driving gloves all the time. Two years of greasy mitts and you'll have 10 and 2 in finished leather

A lot of cars ran a smaller steering wheel back in the day. A high percentage were totaled due to it, it's not safe at all.

Well in most of all of my cars I replaced the steering wheel with a nice and thick smaller diameter MOMO wheel. Man I loved the way that wheel felt in my hands. I saw one from GRANT for the Mustang, it looked kind of cheep.
