    I recently acquired this 1966 Formel 380mm wood rim steering wheel from Bouke at Vintage Volante in Holland.

    I think it suits my CSi quite well!

    I have purchased a majority of my steering wheels from Bouke V. & Hans W.

    That '66 Formel is very similar to my '65 Personal

    I predict that 2018 will be the year of the steering wheel! Keep the pictures coming - especially those that are on the buying end.

    I bought a Le Mans and I'm working on an CSI Sport wheel for a forum friend. Looking forward to keeping more pics coming!

    I bought this Prototipo knock-off recently (not installed yet). I liked it because:

    (1) it's 360 (only Proto you can get right now is 350mm, and
    (2) I actually like the look better. W/the bottom spoke wrapped like the top two, it looks more cohesive and consistent (my $0.02)

    Feels really nice too! Not too shabby for $212. Actually made in Italy.

    Looks somewhat like this one posted earlier IMHO (albeit black and with smoother edges):

    i also have some wheels... :)

    this is a 35 cm aftermarket "soft" one on the rally car ... i like it , it has grip !

    this one came with the blue CS... 34 cm. But i don't like wooden wheels , to slippery .
    SAM_2336.JPG

    i will change it for the 36cm wheel that came on the rally car at the time...

    SAM_2338.JPG

    and this 32 cm was a test... but way to small to handle a E9 ....

    In addition to the Momo Prototipo 37cm wheel on the car, I have this Nardi 37cm wheel. I thought it was dished too much, but it turns out to be identical to the Prototipo - about one inch of dish. Not sure which one I'll put on the car in the end...
