Default Smaller Steering Wheel for Palio

Hi Folks!

Was wondering if anyone of you have experience with a smaller steering wheel for Palio GTX? I'm planning to replace my car's current biggish wheel.

If yes, could you plz guide me

1) Does the Steering wheel hub needs to be changed or there are wheels that can be mounted directly on the existing hub
2) Approximate cost range
3) Where and who can do a professional installation in Bangalore

Thanks in advance!

You will need a PALIO specific hub incase you are fitting an after market steering.(Which is hard to find)

Else i have heard you can use a lancer's hub as well in the worst case.

You can go through my gallery to have a look at a smaller steering wheel in the palio.
You need a hub specific to the palio... and then you can get any steering wheel you like.

Thank you guys!

hellspawn - Did you find the installation complicated? Is there a noticable difference w.r.t steering feedback?

No,the installation was fairly easy,not at all complicated.
I dont see how smaller steering wheel will alter the steering feedback but yes,it is easier to grip and turn.The stock steering is too big and not all designed properly to aid quick full lock turns due to absence of proper spokes on the wheel.
Highly recommended for a palio.
