GT owners!

I swapped a GTS leather steering wheel into my GT. Got the GTS wheel from a salvage yard for 100. Install is simple.

I'll get some photos soon. Looks and feels great.

GTS is wrapped in leather & it feels way more comfortable, plus it doesn't fade & look like junk like the GT.

They are totally different in the feel.

I drove the GT for 4 years and when I felt the steering wheel of my GTS, it was like butter...hehe.

Much more comfortable IMO.

Or you can buy an aftermarket custom wheel, maybe a MOMO. There are other nicer leather wheels too, I am sure of it.

I'm going to save my money to buy a GTS after owning a GT for a month now, so I can go from 0-60 mph 1 second faster! rofl

No thanks, GT2111

And the lift jokes are horrible. But I still laughed. grin

GT did have a leather option? Good, I thought I was losing it. Also my arm rests are leather, must've been the same option. (obviously I bought my car used).

yeah, my only complaint with the gts steering wheel is that leather gets slippery when wet and they have no finger grips on the wheel. the only grip you get with the wheel comes from its 3-points..and it's not always the most comfortable way to hold the wheel

you just need the gts assemblies

...according to boost magazine (by car and driver) it costs approximately $300 to change the rear drums of a celica gt into the rear disc brakes of a celica gts thumbsup
