Hi All,

I decided to make a thread dedicated to MAcarbon steering wheels. Hope everyone enjoys this thread and it gives you ideas of what you do and don't like.

Here is a picture of the wheel above installed. This wheel was done in Alcantara with a carbon top and bottom, and the center section was left in the original silver.

Enjoy the pics!

I'm noticing that the top part of all of your wheels are @ 25% thinner than my PPI wheel. Isthis just a matter of personal preference? I have gotton used to the fatter Carbon top section. It does feel good . (no gloves on) Maybe your wheels are meant to be used with racing gloves on?? :)

None of our wheels are thicker than stock. It's all personal preference, but I really don't like the super thick wheels.

We just did this Lamorghini Gallardo wheel for a customer's new Balboni LP 550-2.

We did this wheel in black leather with a carbon bottom, middle and top. The 12 o'clock racing stripe is done in white with a thinner gold stripe to replicate the stripes on the Balboni.

Beautiful wheels. Amazing craftsmanship and talent went into these things. Hand-made?? And the jet-blue striped one is really different/one of a kind. ;)

Thanks Harrison!

Our leather guys and carbon guys are equally skilled. Each wheel is custom tailored to the customers configuration. The leather is all stitched by hand and the carbon is hand layed...Each wheel is a piece of art.
