    I too have one, I compared it to an NOS tuff wheel and while it is considerably different (a lot of little things) it does mostly look the part and I would buy another one.

    (sorry for the old pic)

    I have a wood one too. I also have the same surface rust thing going on. I like the wheel just need to find a way to keep it from rusting. Got it from Mancini racing.

    I like the 4 spoke Grant wheels because I can rest my hand at the 6 o'clock position while driving. They do show a light rust after about 20 years but other than that they've served me well.

    It looks like abodyjoe used a spacer while mopardrt didn't. Does this have something to do the column shifter vs. the floor shifter?

    i used a factory adapter. puts the wheel in a stock location. nothing to do with a column shift or anything else.

    the tuffwheel or rim blow is a flat wheel. the spacer is used to put it in the factory location..

    If you try to mount without the spacer, it will be hard to get your knees between the wheel and seat. I wish I had Joey's pics before I mounted. I already had the adapter so I just had to take apart and reinstall.

    Glad to see Grant took the rivets out of the wooden one. I talked to them at SEMA and told them that sucks.

    My understanding is, there are two that Grant makes. One where the spokes are on the backside of the wheel and one where they are in the middle. The one in the middle is more accurate, BTW. Any preference?

    Thought about a wood one, and a leather cover. Means I don't have to worry about the foam coming loose like the Tuff wheel I had awhile ago. Bad idea?

    Anybody want to sell their wood one with rivets for cheap because they upgraded to one without rivets? ;-)
