FAQ

 Hi Friends,

We've been getting lots of of the same questions, so here is a list compiled into a FAQ to save everyone some time.  Email us with any questions not found at renownusa@gmail.com.

Thanks for the continued support!

Where are you located?

We are in San Francisco, CA.

Do I need anything else besides the wheel to mount to my car?

Yes, you need to buy a MOMO steering wheel hub adapter or any hub adapter designed for your car with the same 70mm PCD 6-bolt pattern.  

Does a Renown steering wheel fit my car?

Yes, they will fit your car.  Our wheels have a six bolt pattern that is universal with other popular steering wheels like Momo, Sparco, OMP, NRG, Sabelt, Isotta.  Therefore you can fit our steering wheel to any car equipped with a MOMO hub adapter.

You can see if MOMO offers a hub for your car here:

What materials are used to make a Renown steering wheel?

The frame of the steering wheel is 6061 T6 Aluminum - from there we use genuine leather, genuine suede or perforated genuine leather on the rim.  

Note: Suede is often desirable for track use because it offers exceptional grip.  Therefore, it is usually used with driving gloves.  Using a suede wheel without driving gloves, results in a very short lifespan to the suede because the oils in our hands break down the suede.  Instead of having a smooth finish, it becomes flat, rough and downright ugly.  

If this is going on a car that you only use occasionally, the quick wear without gloves isn't as noticeable.  But if on a daily driver, the suede will wear much faster than a leather wheel.  We recommend the use of driving gloves to help increase the lifespan of your Renown grip.  

Perform a quick google search for more info on how other drivers feel about suede vs. leather.
