Title: Nardi Steering wheel
Post by: nthomas1 on 04 June, 2019, 12:37:28 PM
I've always liked the Nardi steering wheels.  I'm trying to keep my Fulvia as original as possible but am thinking that a period styled Nardi wheel would be an acceptable modification.  The closest dimensions to the original factory fitted Fulvia wheel would be a dished wheel ("deep corn") with a 395mm rim.  However Nardi only make their 395mm woodrim/alloy wheel in their "classic" design which is not dished.   The largest dished wheel that they do is 350mm.   Does anybody have experience with either the 395mm classic or 350mm dished wheel on their Fulvia (mine's a 1.3 S2 with standard steel wheels) , and can comment about how much it affects the driving position and heaviness of steering?

A more in keeping mod is to find a HF2000 steering wheel (same as Fulvia except a more comfortable thicker real wood rim).

I look at these type of wheels sometimes but have a nice period leather Ferrero which I like. I also like the Momo Indy re-release. (Every company is into heritage these days, apart from Lancia). What I would say is have another look at the 'deep corn' because I think they may be extremely dished, more like a 70's US muscle car. The dished one you show is just right but I'm not sure it's a 'deep corn'.
