So Ive been thinking of replaceing the stock steeing wheel (smaller).If you've replaced your steering wheel,post a pic (allso price $$$).Did it need an adaptor plate or did it come with one or was none needed.Im not sure if the ones on this link will work,but the sure do look nice.I like the Kobra style,the strada looks nice too.Was the stock wheel very dificult to remove? http://www.volantiluisi.it/Modello.asp?i_id=16

The stock steering wheel is easy enough to remove with a steering wheel puller. Remember though that on a car with no power steering a smaller steering wheel will increase the steering effort. Make sure your suspension is working correctly and you have the right offset on your front wheels.
Edit - I have a Firebird steering wheel

Here's mine. Bought it off ebay for 18US. The adapter for this one was also a 6 hole mount, like the fiero is, so I just took apart an old GT wheel, dilled out new holes to adapt it to the stock Fiero hub assembly. After a few months though, the leather started peeling out. Have to use a stronger glue (3M) and re-glue a couple of area's.
Don't have any good pics of it installed on the car, guess I need to update that with some more pics

Here's mine. Got it off of eBay for about $200. It's a very nice wheel and it goes with the theme of my car. But it'd still be a nice wheel even without the prancing horse in the middle.
I was thinking about going through this person,price is right and includes the adaptor.I allso like some of the other pics,good info too ( x-thumpr-x).A+ for all, unles you allready have my A+ rateing.
This wheel required an adapter plate and moved it closer to me about 2 inches. I also had to make a plate to mount the horn switch that goes under the horn button. I have less than $100 in it all together.
The smaller diameter is good. It makes gettin in and out of the car easier too.
The wheel is the only place where your body comes in direct contact with the car. Replacing an old 4-spoke, or gummy GT wheel will make the entire car seem better.

I bought a new (while cheap $89) steering wheel from ebay, and a momo adapter. Got it all together, but can't figure out how to re-connect so the horn works!!
The new steering wheel has electrical connection with a ground wire, while (as you experts know) the stock works with the pushing of a pin and spring!! How do I get this to work properly. I did a search, but it appears I'm the only one w/out a clue!!

RTNmsds - a quick question on your seats. They are from a 1990+ 300zx no? what sort of modifications' did you need to do, if any, to get them to fit? Thanks
Everyone else with custom wheels, how much smaller are they than the stock fiero wheel? I find that with longer legs my knees are very close to the wheel and during more spirited driving my knees hit the wheel alot and it is as far as it will tilt up
