    Default custom steering wheel

    Hello
    I want to replace or maybe get it refitted/retrimed steering wheel. I want a more sporty/thicker feel. I was searching around and saw people swaying their steering wheels with alcantara to make it more thinker. Easier to grip, and the material isn't as slidy as normal leather or rubber. Has anyone done something like that on their original oem wheel ? or is it better to just buy something aftermarket like momo or nardi ? I found this website where they customise steering wheels, but the prices they quote are a bit expensive. Not sure what to do, any opinions?

    I was thinking of going MoMo or others ... but then decided with Corksport https://corksport.com/2010-2013-mazd...ing-wheel.html
    which is oem fit with airbags and works steering wheel controls ...
    Bottomline...I love this steering wheel ... Thicker is better ...

    +1, I have one installed, it's pretty good, much better and more comfortable than the OEM wheel. Flat bottom looks nice too.
