The S550 Mustang steering wheel is arguably the sportiest one ever offered on the standard trim Ford Mustang, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement.
If you are like us, you prefer a flat-bottom steering wheel for looks and functionality, so your legs do not come into contact with the wheel at any point during vigorous driving.
The X550 steering wheel from SVE Performance does just that — with a race inspired flat bottom design to provide more leg clearance during spirited driving and getting in and out of your Mustang, and nice styling to boot.
Not only does the X550 steering wheel drastically change the look and feel of your interior but it has thicker grips (at the 10 and 2 o’clock hand locations) to improve grip, ergonomics and ultimately better control of your vehicle.
The X550 steering wheel has strategically placed materials throughout the wheel. Black, genuine leather is sewn in on both sides of the wheel where your hands are most commonly placed. This durable material helps extend the life of your wheel in places that see the most use. A black, leather sight-line is sewn into the 12 o’clock position of the wheel which helps you quickly steer your Mustang straight after coming out of a turn.
The top and bottom of the steering wheel has black suede material that provides a high class look and black stitching is used throughout to complete the X550 steering wheel’s tasteful aesthetics.
