The wheel is just a piece of steel with a cylindrical ring around it, the part that connects the wheel to the hub is the same as any Grant wheel, I'm not trying to best Sparco or Momo I'm just trying to make a wheel to my preference.
Superiority can have many meanings; aesthetics, structural, price, etc. From a personal standpoint I'd say it is superior simply because it's exactly what i want, i honestly can't find a rally style deep dish wheel like this under 350mm, this is about 290mm, 60mm is a pretty big difference, and it'll be very structurally sound once it's finished, plus how strong does a steering wheel need to be anyways? It's not like i'm making brake disks or something.
I've just mated the rim with the cross member to fit much closer, no more washers. I've also drilled some holes for the hub, just need the big one for the column.
I also bought a horn cap that pulls the entire wheel assembly together, it'll almost look oem, which is nice. http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/ite...asp?T1=5895+01
The hub kit came with a cover that goes right behind the wheel and covers the hub assembly which is painted the same way and aligns with this cap perfectly.
