Installed my new Beith wheel (flat top, flat bottom) along with a new clockspring since my old one was damaged from the eBay wheel. Beith preinstalled all the buttons, main wiring harness, shroud, and paddles for no extra charge, awesome customer service! The quality is OEM level or better and the alcantara is WAY smoother and nicer than the eBay wheel. Not to mention the full carbon fiber bezels. It's a little thinner than the too-thick eBay wheel and feels similar to my old GT500 steering wheel I had on my 2012, which is to say perfect. The flat top is really nice, easier to grip without the wheel slipping when you're turning (gloss CF problem) and it improves visibility over the top as well.

Very nice. I wasn't aware that Beith had an option of receiving the wheel with the buttons and wiring harness pre-installed.

They normally don't, but he made an exception for me since my stuff was damaged from the poor fitment of the eBay wheel. He almost forgot about it and I noticed the picture he sent me before shipping didn't have the buttons etc. on it. I emailed him ASAP and he actually intercepted the package from FedEx, installed the stuff, then shipped it off to me. Really exceptional customer service

That is outstanding. Do you have any recommendations for someone to install the wheel them-self. I've had one dealership quote me two hours labor and another quoted $125 but didn't say if the quote included moving everything from old wheel to new wheel. I don't mind paying if it is a big hassle to do the install.

the install is pretty straightforward, i would just do it yourself. it's a little tricky to get the springs to depress but other than that it's super easy. just watch a cj pony parts video on it.

My Beith wheel is one of my favorite mods. Exceptional quality and very good customer service for sure. Price was higher than some but in this case I got what I paid for.

It is not a big hassle to install a new steering wheel or switch over the buttons. Watch the video, and just take your time. Less than an hour project.

Tried to do a donut in the rain, turned off advancetrac and TC, tried the donut and advancetrac went crazy, grabbing wheels, then lots of errors on the screen.

Does it stay on marginally if you're in sport mode? Need to be in track? Sport+?

Yes I held for 8-10 seconds.

Did you see the "advancetrac disabled" pop up in the center guage display?

Hold the switch til you see that. Once that's off you can do whatever you want. The car will let you do donuts and even let you crash, it won't intervene.
