Hi all-
Does anyone know of any options for a flat-bottom'd replacement steering wheel for the CTS-V? Haven't seen anything out there, but would love to add that to the car.

Round wheels work better.

You might check with your dietician and personal trainer.

I will admit, the one things the germans get right are steering wheels..

only BMW manages to screw things up really. I suppose the red/blue stiching helps a little.. but they're still too plain looking.

I am with ya. Flat bottom steering wheels FTMFL. I have chunky legs and they fit between the seat and steering wheel no problem.

The Buick Regal GS steering wheel has a flat bottom, wonder if it could fit? Would also need to swap out the emblem.

I would check with Caravaggio. They made one for my C6Z06.

He needed the flat steering wheel for the ejector seat to work.

It wasn't a wheel. It was a yoke.

Thanks DoingOK. MM36X, good point about the Regal wheel, but I'm not trying to blaze that trail.

Sounds like you're blazing something...

Man, you just hate the flat-bottomed wheel huh? Don't worry, you won't have to put one on your car. I won't even make you look at it on my car (if I ever add one).

On E63s I was cross-shopping, it just felt "right" to have the wheel more oblong/flattened (especially with the paddle shifters-acted as a is a physical feedback point-of-reference for the wheel)

Camaro guys are pissed because the ZL1 has the flat bottom version of the Cruze/Volt steering wheel.

My HSV Senator (GM-Holden) has a slightly flatterned steering wheel, and the buttons may be able to be adapted.

There were a few shipped to the UK via Walkinshaw Performance - no conversion required. They are fundamentally a (later version of) the Pontiac G8 (Holden Commodore).

is it different from the regular camaro? Yes.
Is it better looking than the regular Camaro wheel? Yes.


I can undestand their fustration, but it's not like that rim is fugly, I like it better overall than the CTS-V's design.

I don't know. I LOVE the steering wheel in the '10 and '11 Camaro that everybody else seems to hate.

I think getting one custom built is the only option out there.

That would be sweet to have the flat steering wheel.
