NEW SPORT GRIP Model 3 & Y CARBON FIBER STEERING WHEEL
We just finished our new mold for our newly designed Sport Grip carbon fiber steering wheel.
Our new sport grip version features:
1. Contoured oversized leather grip areas
2. A flat bottom
3. An Equal diameter to your stock steering wheel providing a sporty smaller type feel. Our original full carbon fiber wheels have a 1/2" larger outside diameter.
With the larger contoured grip handles you will love the feel of wrapping your hands around the soft Napa leather while placing your thumbs in the recessed sporty grip locations. This is a must for Performance owners !!
The side handles are made from Italian Napa leather and the black leather version will be perforated as shown in the photos. The white leather version will not be perforated, but will have a smooth surface without the perforation holes. We are doing white this way to avoid the potential dirt collection in the holes.
The 3 piece carbon fiber steering wheel accent pieces are sold separately. Here is a LINK to order. We also have matching carbon fiber turn signal stalks that can be found in our carbon fiber section. Also, the white covered airbag is simply a vinyl wrap so if you order this with white leather just let us know if you want a couple pieces of satin white vinyl and we will include it with your order. You will have to wrap the airbag yourself as we cannot ship an airbag. The wrapping is not hard to do and we plan to make a video to show you how to install the vinyl.
As of July 25th, we have 10 wheels in production. We are making 5 with black leather and 5 with white leather. The first 10 orders will ship the first week of August. After that, the lead time of 3 to 4 weeks will follow. All of the first 10 are going to have the glossy finish. The matte finish will be ready to ship in late August.
These again are only $999, and installation is free in Southern California. This price includes returning your original stock steering wheel, or you can keep it by paying $600. Once you place this item in your shopping cart the price will be reduced to $999 plus the deposit. There will be a $600 refundable deposit collected, but once you send back your stock wheel we will issue your refund.
Shipping is free in the USA and we pay the returned shipping. We will include a prepaid Fedex label when we ship out your order.
We purchase TESLA OEM Steering wheels through an authorized Tesla service center. They are fully warranted as they are not an aftermarket product. These are TESLA OEM wheels and installing them will not affect any TESLA warranties.
When we upgrade the wheel we simply modify the perimeter of the wheel. We remove the vinyl or leather on the outside along with the urethane under the surface. Then we vacuum form and mold the carbon fiber to the wheel core. We reinstall a soft Napa leather on the right and left side of the wheel.
These fantastic carbon fiber molded steering wheels are the best you can buy, ours cost about 1/3 the price of our competitors. You get your choice of a Glossy or Matte carbon fiber finish along with a choice of black or white leather. The leather stitching will be black for both the black and white leather.
Self installation takes less than 20 minutes. You your airbag and steering wheel switches get removed from your current wheel and put right into your new carbon fiber wheel.
In our installation video we teach you how to remove the steering wheel from the column and how to remove the switches. We then teach you how to put both back in the wheel your order from us.
Please watch our installation video on the above TAB before ordering.
With your purchase we ship you 2 allen wrenches you will use to pop out your airbag, along with a allen socket to unscrew the wheel from the column. We include a Torx bit to remove the switches as well. If you live in Southern California we will install your new wheel for free, and we can install it in 15 minutes.
You will love this steering wheel upgrade. Check out our video to learn more and to see how easy installation is.
Outside the continental USA, shipping is more. Extra to Canada, Hawaii or anywhere else. Please email us with your address so we can calculate your shipping before you order if you are not in the continental USA.
WHITE LEATHER HANDLE WARNING:
Our white leather handles are made from very expensive Italian Napa Leather. It is very soft to the touch, but white leather is prone to getting dirty, staining, and even premature surface wearing can happen when exposed to higher levels of acidity from hand perspiration.
Damaging the white leather can become an issue depending on the acidity level of your hand perspiration which varies from person to person. With white leather side handles we recommend wearing driving gloves to keep perspiration off the leather surface, or holding the wheel on the carbon fiber top or bottom areas and avoiding repeated contact with the white leather handles unless driving gloves are worn.
This wear and tear is not covered by warranty, but we can replace the leather handles with new white or black leather for $179.
CLEANING and SEALANT:
For both black and white leather handles we recommend using mild soap and water to clean the carbon fiber and the leather handles. Leather conditioner is recommended as leather can dry out, and something like mild baby wipes will clean your steering wheel, but to increase longevity, we recommend using a leather sealant to protect the white leather, or even a nanoceramic leather treatment like Ceramic Pro. We use Ceramic Pro 9H to seal the white vinyl seats in many customers cars and we use the leather Ceramic Pro treatment on steering wheel leather as well.
