Planning to do the same. Which p/n wheel did you end up ordering?I went ahead and ordered a new wheel and am shipping it to DCTMS. I've asked them to make it slightly thicker with firmer padding, full alcantara, and blue stitching. Will update thread with pics when I get it.
Thank you to everyone for the help you have all provided!
Thanks for the tip! Beautiful wheel and I love the feeling of new Alcantara but I've seen the mess they turn into after a couple of years of regular use. Hope you have some nice driving glovesI wanted a thicker Alcantara wheel with a blue leather strip, and blue stitching.
YW, TY. I use a version of these https://www.bionicgloves.com/Bionic...t?quantity=1&custcol1=1&custcol2=3&custcol3=1 for the daily driving. Already used them in the RS with the OEM wheel. They don't list the exact version I have on their sight. The only real difference is mine have a conductivite material on the thumb and forefinger tip, for use with touchscreens. I purchased mine by calling them directly. They're not the most expensive, and I'm not sure they qualify as "nice", but are an incredible value, IMO.Thanks for the tip!

There's very little reason to worry about using a heated wheel without the heat connected as far as I can think of. Might be slightly heavier . Also, you should probably find a way to secure the connection and/or wires for the heat, but beyond that I don't see what could be a drawback.thomwithah - that is very similar to what I want! Looks great!
So if I can't find a non-heated one, can anyone think of a reason why I couldn't use a heated version? Those are available all over the place. I have no intention of trying to hook up the heating elements.
OP - sorry for the gigantic threadjacking!
Did you end up ordering the heated wheel then? Did they end up matching Tasca's price?Went ahead and ordered the Ford Performance wheel from Levittown and they are drop shipping it to DCTMS.
FYI - Mike at Levittown is fantastic to deal with! I don't even live in NY but their deals are excellent and he is a fun guy.
