Racecars are designed with very small cockpits that are often so cramped, they require removal of the steering wheel just for the driver to get in and out. Such steering wheels feature quick-release mechanisms in the center steering hub with exposed bolts and levers that can be unsafe in a crash, and racetrack officials require center pads for protection. Grant® offers stylish cushioning center pads for its Performance Series quick-release steering wheels that feature heavy padding and durable high-grade black vinyl. For deep-dish pattern wheels, choose the 5-inch diameter center pad with snap-on buttons for the wheel hub. For shallow-dish steering wheels, choose the 3-inch diameter center pad designed with wrap-around spoke sleeves.
