This is a discussion on Steering Wheels for 2012 WRX within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Originally Posted by rage-wrx My bad. So let me get this straight. I'm paying 0 for this? Yup, my thoughts ...
I like the way the way it feels, it has a larger grip area which feels good. Yeah the price is steep but if I can find a decent deal I'm going to jump on it. I've found an online dealer selling them 465, which still aint cheap. I thought JPM Coachworks used the Gtspec wheel but the one they offer looks different now.
I have the prova and love it. It's the best mod I've done. When I put my 11 wrx stg2 e85 back to stock and got my 13 sti the prova wheel is the only think I cared to keep for the new car.
Went with the Gtspec. I got a fantastic deal from Zinkai and couldn't pass it up. Also decided to pull the trigger on a suede interior ( headliner, all the pillars, sun visors and a few other spots). I'll do a write up on it this weekend once it's finished. I don't get why Subaru uses two different interior colors ( pillars/headliners) for the wrx/sti.
Howdy Black, I got the wheel for 450$. It was the last one they had in red stitching, but I believe they have a few in blue if you're interested. I also just snagged some Zerosport 4 pot brakes and slotted dual rotors.....looks like ramen noodles for a month haha! Ill do a nice write up over the weekend.

might pull the trigger for one myself eventually.. looks like prices are dropping a wee bit? just scooped an AP finally so it might be a bit before I snag one of these..

Just got home from driving with the new wheel. 1st you'll notice the smaller diameter immediately, but not in a bad way...just different. This wheel has a LOT of shapes, which so far I really like. After paying for it I kinda had buyers remorse but after using it I can honestly say it was worth it. Starting on my interior tomorrow along with the sti turn signals swap and then the new brakes.....busy busy weekend.
