What's the size of a stock 90 f150 steering wheel?
Im looking to put a smaller one as I'ma bigger fella in a reg cab just to give me some more room with the Steering wheel. I'm looking at a 10in wheel from summit think thats to small?
here's a cool 10" steering wheel I found on the photobucket
All you need after that is some dingle berries hanging from the windshield and whitewalls running on 13" gold wire Daytons
A steering wheel acts as a lever. The shorter the lever the less leverage you'll have. That means the more steering effort that you'll have to put into the wheel to turn it. That's why when you look at older cars from the 60s on back, especially the ones without power steering, they have massive steering wheels. The suggested 13" is really on the small side. I don't think I would want to drive a truck with anything smaller than 15".
I didn't suggest a 13" wheel , i said i would not go any smaller , i use a 14" wheel in my truck and its fine , stock is 15 , my 70 396 BB nova only had a 14" wheel in it with no power steering , no problem steering it ...
I'm 5-10 305 not a small fella the 15 is ok in there now but I'd like a few inches smaller give me a lil more room for turning as I tend to use one hand alot. I'm not to worried bout it being a little harder to steer. Just lookin for a little mire room.
I cant tell the difference between the 15-14" , with power steering you don't need alot of leverage , so its up to you ...if some can't drive a truck with a little smaller wheel they need to man up......Lew
I think I can handle a few inch smaller wheel. I drove my dads old chevy with no power steerin for almost a year it'll be fine. I agree lew a think a 12-13 is the smallest wheel to consider. Any thing else is stupid small.
I'm with bashby here, tilt would be more convenient, especially if there is another driver, as in wife or GF.
