    13" seems very small to me.

    Been looking at new wheel myself. You need to check how many splines you have 36 or 48 for the boss.

    I am thinking 14" or 15" as I have been told from a number of people that 13" is just to small.

    I guess it is subjective but a lot to spend to find you just don't like a tiny tiny steering wheel.

    get yourself a couple of plates and pretend to drive with them. Then you can get the feel for different sizes:p:p
