I've been reading "customer reviews" of various steering wheels.
One thing that I noticed that comes up is "flimsy".
I'm not a novice to aftermarket steering wheels and have never come across this before so it has my attention.
Personally I can't even imagine how I personally could bend or twist these things up UNLESS they were in some kind of an accident where the wheel was subject to some kind of an impact?
Even the "Chinese" versions are made with a similar thickness to the aluminum frames.
The only thing that would vary would be the alloy involved?
I think I remember something about the wood rim wheels being involved in splintering in collisions where as the leather covered tend to bend and absorb the impacts.
