smaller diameter steering wheels

Has anyone gone with one of the Momo's? Thoughts? They certainly look cool and it would be nice to have more room to get in and out especially with a seat that has bolstering. Does a smaller wheel make the truck more difficult to drive? Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Mit

Mit,

I have a smaller MOMO, I think around 13-14" and love it and does not make the truck more difficult to drive, actually I feel it makes it easier to drive all around FWIW

Looking at the leather/alcantara on Urban Land Cruisers. Is that a bad idea in a soft top with no roof? I have another car and try to limit how often my Defender gets rained on but it does happen. Is that wheel toast if it gets wet?

I'm only 5'-9" and I can see the value in not hitting the window with my left elbow.

I'm 6'5 and love the little 13 momo wheel in a defender. For some reason the one I have is hanging on a nail in the shop.
