    What's dangerous about a cheap steering wheel?

    Certain ones bend really easily. Under road racing conditions itcould cause an accident.

    Ahh, I gotcha. The reason I asked was because I sell alot of steering wheels for under $60 (which I would consider to be cheap). But I wouldn't call them junk either. They're just simple steering wheels for use on race cars. Once you take away the leather wrapping, fancy stitching, anodizing, and high-end brand name, you can get a nice, strong steering wheel without spending alot of money.

    I guess I'm not surprised that some companies are selling flimsy steering wheels though, but I've been lucky enough to never come across one.
