Anyone change out their steering wheel?

I feel like I'm driving a bus sometimes. I used to drive integras, and had one with one of those small Momo race steering wheels. Now I feel like I'm driving a bus with that big ol steering wheel that comes in our cars.

I'm looking for something OEM, but much smaller in diameter, with an airbag and the steering wheel controls.

So I don't want to skimp on the luxory of the steering wheel controls, nor the safety of not having an airbag.

Anybody done something like this? Suggestions? Euro-R wheel?

TSX? S2K? I dunno... but compared to other cars that I have driven, the Accord wheel feels just right for me.

the accord wheel actually doesn't feel right to me. It seems a tad bit too fat.

I guess smaller yet OEM looking wheel is the one from s2k.... but you will lose the controls unless you modify it somehow

are there any OEM that have controls that are smaller in diameter?

Have you tried the 2006 Accord steering wheel? It is sportier because it has thegrip bulges and the softness of the grip is different than 03-05.

Just go to a Honda dealer and get a grip on one of the newer 2006 Accord Coupe and see if you like that feel. I agree our steering wheel is too big, but I do not want to remove the luxury of having button controls.

Let us know what you feel and think.

Yea, I did. But it's the same diameter as the original urethane one. It's a leather wheel from an Acura..... retained all the controls and stuff.
