    Steering wheels, which ones work? (02 Wrx)

    I scanned through a few pages, but I'm still not sure which ones work on my 2002, and which ones don't.
    I personally don't like the stock momo wheel, or wheels that have a STI logo.

    What I do like is the 06 wrx wheel with a regular subaru badge.



    I read something briefly about issues with the air bags, but it didn't go into detail.
    What are my options?
    02 Wrx wagon - daily
    91 Civic sedan - other daily
    88 Civic wagon - el cheapo project
    91 Civic wagon - top notch project
    08 Ridgeline - wife's daily

    I have a NRG shorty quick release, it allows me to attach a wide variety of steering wheels. You lose the cruise controls and auto canceling blinkers, but my car has no use for either of those features.


    This is the steering wheel I am currently using, it's made by Momo and seems to be very durable.

    You could always rig it and mount the controls on the steering column, dash, or where ever you want. I had already removed all the other cruise hardware, so ditching the controls was a no-brainier for me.



    I only have experience with aftermarket.. I would think someone here would know what OEM steering wheels would work.

    The JDM V7 wheel fits. In order to make anything 06+ to work you have to do some rewiring to the airbag, which for me was not a good idea. The V7 wheel has an all silver MOMO logo and red stitching but otherwise looks the same

    JDM V& from what I just searched is a 5 spoke wheel.
    I'm looking for a 3 spoke.
    What's the issue with the air bag?
