Now that wheel definitely has some possibilities! That red one looks like a close match to the adrenalin red interior I want to get, and the flat bottom definitely looks like it increases the clearance when getting in and out. Couple that with the power tilt and telescoping features and this one looks like a winner! I had a two tone red and black wheel in my Spyder and was somewhat disappointed that the C7 3LT only had red stitching vs. the two tone. This is nice!

That looks so amazing. How difficult or easy it to swap out? Also what about the airbag.

Not super difficult to swap out. 1. Disconnect battery in trunk. Use a small screw driver to release the air bag (small holes on the bottom of back side of steering wheel, 4 and 6 o clock position. Once air bag is released remove the 2 connectors to the air bag. Then you'll need to disconnect the 2 harness plugs. Lastly use a t-50 to remove main bolt holding wheel down. Once the screw is out the wheel should come right off. Swap wheels and hook everything back up and call it a day. Took me about 10 minutes the first time with out knowing what I was doing.

I was curious about the airbag but not deleting its function. Do u actually remove it and put it back in the new wheel. Sorry for all the ?s but i want to make sure i make the right decision.

Yes you will re use your air bag. As long as you disconnect the battery you shouldn't have to worry about residual energy.

If it's anything like my 2005 Chevy SSR, there's a little more to it to disable the airbag. I follow the shop manual procedures for steering wheel R&R (probably done a dozen now) I haven't seen a Stingray shop manual, but that would be the place to find out exactly what the procedure is to disable the airbag before removing it.
That said, I seen them removed many time with only disconnecting the battery.
Personally, I'm not to fond of the idea of an airbag going off in my face. Not trying to scare anyone but I want to provoke some thought before just jumping in.

I've done it around 300 times in the C6 and never had a problem.
