Hi
I would like to change the steering wheel of my Mahindra Bolero. As you can see in the below photo, the steering wheel is big (ugly) and not very comfortable to drive.
large steering *
There are many sporty steering wheels available in the accessories market but the problem is that I need to find a matching Hub to fix the wheel to the steering column. I have tried searching in Hyderabad and no one seems to be able to get one. These Hubs are made out of castings. Can anyone give me any information/suggestions on this?

Hey Chaxy,

Getting parts for a Mahindra are extremely difficult as they change specifications and designs sooner than you can say "Mahindra & Mahindra"!

I'd advice you to visit the best Mahindra workshop in your city and ask them for a hub. Alternatively, as has been suggested by Kinetik, you can try the adapter hub. I had one in my Esteem and it fit perfectly.

Hub adapter kits mount directly below your steering wheel, and allow you to fit practically any custom steering onto your car. It accomodates for the size differences. Hub adapter kits cost between 750 - 1600.
