The ST wheel has nicer, perforated leather. The wheels are the same from S to ST to Ti, but the leather and appointments are slightly different.

Yea, first "mod" I did to my SE was taking my leatherman micra, which is scalpel sharp, and trimming all the sharp flashing off the wheel. It's a poor reflection on Ford that the wheel has sharp flashing all over it. If the car wasn't $2500 cheaper than the hyundai elantra we were looking at, I wouldn't have bought it instead, the hyundai was a much nicer drive but I suppose there is a reason the Ford is so much cheaper.

With a steady hand and a small sharp blade you can greatly improve the stock plastic wheel. Next step will be a good leather cover. $150 is too much.

vacman Got my wheel today. It is SO much more substantial than the plastic one. Cannot wait to install it.

From the catalog. Sorry about the loss of color. If you could pop it loose it would make a great matching vinyl piece!

Yes

Agreed. I went for a test drive and it had the cheap wheel....feel horrible. Test drove another with the leather, and huge improvement.

Can't believe the ST wheel is that cheap...

steering wheel

Anyone have a leather stering wheel they would be willing to part ways with after swapping out for the ST steering wheel? If not Im probably going to order the wheel skins set up and just wrap my own wheel.
