    If you were contemplating a response before I stepped to the plate. I will politely concede my position on the winner's podium to the true winner. :notworthy:

    All the money a save from gas goes right back into the car with all these custom upgrades, tats what we get for being car enthusiasts. My next upgrade is coming, I ordered the JDM engine room cover, possibly next week.

    My steering wheel was slightly to the left after my alignment and I figured to get the new wheel on before I took it back for them to fix. I was able to get it as straight as it originally was.

    Do I need to use a steering wheel puller? What size is the nut that holds the wheel?

    Thanks in advance

    Those of u that had the issue with the wheel not exactly strait when driving strait all u needed was a tie rod adjustment? When i put mine on last night i drove this morning and noticed driving strait the steering wheel was to the left a little. So i just took everything off and pulled the wheel off to go to the next setting to the right. Now its a little off to the right but not as bad as it was to the left. So i need to go to alignment shop and adjust tie rods u think?

    UPDATE: 8/8/15 Front alignment corrected it. Looks better now with the real CF button covers on the wheel.

    Hi All,

    I've been reading the posts in this thread and am contemplating getting an aftermarket steering wheel. Lots of great info! Based on this quoted post, it seems that the MIT wheels are lighter and the leather is harder than the JDM wheels. What about the quality of the REAL brand, like this?

    auc-screate | Rakuten Global Market: REAL (BRL) Prius ZVW30 leather Alesa gungrip steering (blue stitch)

    Is the SPORT GRIP the same as the GUN GRIP? And, what is the average import duty fee for something like this?
