Swapped steering wheels from the crappy plastic Ecoboost base to leather from a GT. Found a nice one on eBay from a 2018 GT with 5k for 68 bucks (anyone on here? hehe)
Yeah. The base steering wheel material feels terrible. One of the changes I'll be making. The vaguely-soft plastic wheel on my beater dodge feels better.
That's why I wrapped mine in leather myself.The steering wheel on my 13 Scion tC >>> stomps my eco premium wheel. Quite sad really, or impressive how nice the tC wheel actually is
Looks good! I was looking to do a wrap until I ran across that steering wheel on eBay, 70 bucks seemed like a pretty good deal for a mint leather one. The GT wheel isn’t perfect but it’s definitely an upgrade over the plastic eco. The swap was really easy as well, less than an hour start to finish. It was the bare wheel so I had to swap my buttons, airbag etc over. Ive done swaps on previous vehicles that took hours so this was cake.That's why I wrapped mine in leather myself.
The numbers look good for tire wear, though yes, I would insist that thrust angle be set to zero and, since you have camber plates, I would ask for more negative up front. It all depends on how you drive the car and what you use it for, but a bit more negative camber up front won't hurt anything.Since I got new wheels and rims got a alignment. I have adjustable camber plates but they’ve never been moved in any alignments. Lol but whatever.
are these specs good for my tire wear? I have 285/35/19 dsw06’s squared. the rear thrust angle is 0.02, is that ok? I read online it should always be 0.00
it’s a daily driver, mpg andtire wear are my priorities. I just drive highway 99% of time
