I have been thinking about getting a more modern looking steering wheel for my 91 Prostar. I like the looks of the Grant 457, it looks close to the same shape and design, just more modern.

What are your thoughts on it?

here is shot of the factory 91 steering wheel and then the Grant 457.

As in the late 80's? I like those too, but as you can see my factory wheel has the same design shape as the new 457.

If you can see it, on my old wheel, the spokes have openings in all three... the two side spokes looks about the same as the Grant 457, but the bottom is a different.

Thanks for the options though! :D

but, your key switch and kill switch are located different than mine

there is nothing wrong with my wheel. My boat has been in a garage its whole life. I just wanted to add a little custom look to it.

The only reason I would vote to replace the original wheel in your 91 is so Milk can have it.

Ha, I will keep it in mind. Thanks guys, Milk, if I decide you will be the first to know!

Did you ever install a new steering wheel? I just ordered the Grant Century to go with my new interior. And am curious to see pics.

When you guys buy these aftermarket steering wheels, go they bolt right up or do you have to buy a steering wheel adapter?

Thanks!

A 5 bolt Grant wheel will bolt right on. A 6 bolt Grant, Momo, Isotta or other, requires an adapter or a new hub.

I put a 6 bolt Grant on a few years ago on my 99'. Had to use an adapter from Grant, they were very helpful.

Just installed my new wheel on my 1996 Prostar that I have been refurbishing. You can see it on the last page of this thread. I wanted something that would match the dash panels I just refurbished too.

I want to go with something similar to the Grant.

Does anyone make a Mastercraft center cap that will fit those?

www.greaklakesskipper.com has MC steering wheel center hub decals, about $14, I think. I put one on my new replacement wheel (see picture).

:cool:

If you could pick any of these wheels, which would you pick?

If I offer a way to get one of these wheels for $95-120 +10 shipping, would you buy today?
This would not come with the MC custom centercap (compare the difference on the three spoke wheel pics, same wheel, different center cap).

This is compard to paying $275-400 plus another $50-90 for the center cap at a MC dealer.
