Thin steering wheel

Post by Darklordmick » Tue Oct 17, 2017 11:58 pm

Is it me or is the new Qq steering wheel really thin....?

I had 57plate mk1 Qq when they came out and don’t recall the wheel feeling like a 1974 mini steering wheel...

I need to thicken it up...and I’m thinking a fully stitched wheel cover... what’s your thoughts

Totally agree I found it to be too thin as well ...I bought a steering wheel cover from asda.. a black leather look one you just slip over the steering wheel.. made a hell of a difference ..its alot thicker now loads better for me although some might say it's too thick now ..it's all down to personal preference

I did get a Cover but I didn’t like the gap so that’s why I’m looking at a fully stitched job

I might be missing the point here but is the problem the Grip diameter of the Wheel because I personally have had no problem with this, but as mentioned this is a personal preference.
Is there a difference between the QQ J11A & J11B Models Diameters ?.
If you are interested there is a wide selection of „Wheel Covers“ on AliExpress - Dave ;)

I think the steering wheel is thin. But it's comfortable as well. I suggest you to use a cover for your steering since you are not comfortable with it.

That’s why I’m going for a full stitched cover so it looks as close to oem as poss

Don’t suppose they would be interchangeable.? Or would that be too simple....

I’m really not a lover of the j11 thin s/wheel...
