    Thicker steering wheel???

    I've noticed that my hands prefer a thicker steering wheel than the stock wheel. Both of my fleet vehicles for work had much thicker wheels that the MM and even my Fox Mustang is thicker. Was there a bolt in Ford wheel that is thicker than the MM version? I'd prefer not to use the wood wheels from the TC unless I painted the wood or wrapped it in leather.

    I am not used to the feeling of the original steering wheel. I actually wrapped the steering wheel in leather just to provide some 'girth'. If you go that direction, there are a lot of YouTube videos out there that can help.

    How about wrapping the existing wheel with a leather cover? Then you can still use the buttons.

    “Dallas steering wheel “ does a great job addressing recovering wheels. I too prefer a thicker steering wheel in addition to thumb rests.

    Someone here had one wrapped years ago and had thumb rests to it. It turned out super slick. Any decent upholstery shop could do that.

    ^^^^ I can confirm this company does excellent work. I installed a few over the years. Widened, with thumb rests was plush.
    They're pricy but quality is first
