I would like to keep my nice/mint stock GT wheel looking good. So I'm looking at putting on an aftermarket wheel. However, I'm conserned about the dimensions of aftermarket wheels. A lot of the wheels availible have a 3"-4" dish to them. What is the dish of the original wheel. Also, I measured the OD of the stock wheel at 14". Does this sound right?

I want to keep the relative position and diameter the same as stock. So, what wheels will do this for me?

If you like your "stock" wheel so much, why not just get a reconditioned one? They have them at www.fierostore.com A lot of the aftermarket steering wheels have almost no dish, what makes them stick out is the adapter you need to use to be able to install them. Make sure you get the shortest adapter. I have a 1 inch on my Grant Evolution steering wheel. I'll try to post a picture later.

Here is the old adapter, it was almost 3 inches.

Easiest way to tell is lay something across the wheel then measure down to the center. This will give you the dish. You know how to measure the outside diameter. Look at the MOMO wheels and they have gorgeous shift knobs. They are gorgeous and italian and look racy as hell. I put a "rage" on mine. Of course Grant makes a pretty good wheel for the price. Good luck!
