I agree Srt2Stang725---- some like others to test unknown waters (even puddles) before jumping in themselves.....

I picked up mine from a close friend, however do a search on the ford part number and you will come across some sites. You will possible pay around $380 to $450 for the wheel, or the wheel/boot combo.

Thumbs up

Thats very cool. Is that wheel any smaller than the stock wheel??

I was thinking of getting a momo wheel but would prefer this one if it was smaller!

Nice write, thanks for the info.

Thanks for the write up. Was toying with the idea of replacing the center cap when I get my 05-07 for one off of the 10 gt. Will be easier than i thought to do it if I can find one.

were did you get the wheel? oh and how much did it set you back? i've been looking to get a s197 for a little while now and the only think i really don't like about them is the stock steering wheel and the svt one is perfect.
