I am finishing set up on a 91 track car. i need a steering wheel and dont know which to get. i am leaning towards the momo tuner or competiton. i have a plug and play hub from rspeed but do not really think i need or want a quick release. It is also a street car for errands. what do you think?
I think while you make up your mind you will also want to consider if you have a power or manual rack....they have different ratios which combined with your steering wheel choice will have an effect on your decision.
I use a 10" wheel and have tested a 9" wheel which is fine for me but people with less forearm strength complain they can't work the wheel for very long without their arms going numb.

I have the Sparco 353, which is basically a 383 with a flat bottom to give you extra knee room. Very nice.
I agree with Sean about if you're using it for street. My commuter BMW came with a suede (alcantra) wheel and it's already needed to be replaced once, and now it's gotten all shiny flat. Lovely to think of what caused it!

I have a basic Longacre 13" wheel with quick release. Don't think I am any slower with it then a more expensive wheel. Can't imagine getting in and out without a quick release removable wheel. Obviously no horn, but then I don't really need one, right?

My question is, if you don't need the QR, why do you need a new wheel for a track car/grocery getter? Leg clearance, cool looks, grip getting slippery, wheel is missing from the car you're setting up, you accidentally hit the horn when swapping hands, hand placement around the spokes, etc.? Otherwise all you'll probably get is, "I use this wheel and I like it (or I don't)." Different problems have different solutions.
