Hi All

What size steering wheel do people think works best in a 1500 Toledo?

I'm thinking of getting a 14" dished wheel from Rimmers but wonder if it is going to make the steering to heavy around town (with 175 tyres)

I see from the Ken Woods in car rally videos on You tube - looks like he uses a 14in wheel in his car?

I might try the standard steering wheel out of my stag first and see how that feels....

cheers

Alastair

A good question!

I think it is very subjective and depends on each individual's preference.


There are two steering rack ratios (3.75 turns and 3.25 turns lock to lock).
I am thinking you have the higher ratio rack?
Trying the alternative s/wheel is what I would do.


For my Sprint, which will have 185 tyres and a higher ratio s/rack, I am going to try
a 13" steering wheel. Heavy steering doesn't bother me any.




Ian.
