Came across some more info on the steering wheel on the J's USA website:
J's Racing "Sport Steering Series" was created with ease of use and excellent gripping feel as the top priority after gathering enormous data on the actual racing and test runs.
The optimum gripping feel is realized by improving the shortcomings of the stock steering wheel like "weak grip" and "uncomfortable grip" with the emphasis on the confidence.
The well though out steering shape minimizes a sense of fatigue even at a long endurance race and the driver can feel its considerable benefit on a long street driving.
The diameter of the steering wheel is set at 350mm compared to the stock size of 365mm.
Please note that the smaller diameter might reduce the visibility of the gauges and might change the accessibility to blinker and wiper control.
Compatible with the stock air bag
The sport steering is compatible with all the Honda stock parts from the SRS module (air bag), paddle shifter, to the audio & navigation switches. It can be recommend to any customer who felt uneasiness on the conventional aftermarket steering wheel.
* this steering wheel does not add the paddle shift capability on the vehicle originally without the paddle shift.
* the air bag installment could be dangerous and has to be performed by an experienced mechanic.
Superior Italian leather
The high-grade Italian leather is used as the material. Furthermore, for a better breathing the punched (air) leather is utilized on the constant contact area (9 and 3 o'clock area). A buckskin model is also available which provide a perfect fit for the drives with driving
A carbon model is made of twilled carbon. Our carbon model presents a great harmony between competitiveness and luxury.
