OMP Trecento steering wheel query

Afternoon,

I saw a car fitted with an OMP Trecento 300mm wheel the other day, and it struck me as just the sort of thing that would go well in my S2 Rallye. The Peugeot wheel is 370mm, so I figure a smaller steering wheel should give me a little more room around the knees as well as a keener turn in.

This the one I am looking at, primarily the Polyurethane wheel because it has the grips and should prove hard wearing too.

Will it just fit straight on, or will I need an OMP boss to go with it? I assume fitting the wheel should be easy enough?

Getting the old one off could be the fun bit!
If it's been on since manufacture it'll be stuck fast.
Bit of penetrating fluid might get down in the splines though to help you out.

If you don't have power steering you'll notice the lack in diameter, mines 330mm i think (Rally 2 spoke) and the wife doesn't moan to much.

I think 300mm may be a little too small!

I used to have the OMP WRC which I really liked, worth looking at.

Just checked mine actually - it's 350mm.

I run a 315mm one in the rally car when i'm on the road and it's a bit small.

Sorry to threadcrap Baryonyx, but does anyone have experience with Motacorsa wheels? I'm thinking of putting one on as a replacement for my now-perishing standard one, but can't stand the stripe on OMP etc.

Looking at this one.

My requirements are somewhat curious. I want the smallest wheel I can find, as I am quite tall. I'm 6'1" tall, so I sit the with the 370mm Peugeot wheel between my knees. I manage with it, but I can't help but think a smaller wheel would give my hands a bit more room when I'm feeding the wheel round, or using a fixed input grip on a tight corner. I know the distance magnification effect on the 370mm wheel will make it easier to turn, but I'm sure my arms will cope with the smaller wheel requiring a bit more force when moving slowly - after all, the missus doesn't even drive my car despite being insured on it.

Add to that I don't want a suede wheel, and I love those 'perforated' grips like the polyurethane wheel has. Next year I might get a Quaife Quick rack fitted, but in the meantime a smaller, more manageable steering wheel would do. I'll take a picture in the car tomorrow to demonstrate my driving position and see if there is a happy medium between 300-370mm.
