hey guys, does the size of the steering wheel effect with a car is roadworthy or not?

i replaced the steering wheel in my laser with an aftermarket one which is considerably smaller, just wondering if i should put the factory one back on before i send it in for a rwc.

normally only makes a difference if you've lost an airbag to do it.
putting the original on couldn't hurt.

May be an issue. Depends on how much smaller it is compared to standard as a percentage. Try it and see. If they knock it back, swap it over and then swap it back after.

I dont see it being an issue with RWC, but it IS an issue wiith insurance. If it is considerably smaller, any claim that is made would be knocked back

Ha, smaller wheels are sooo not rice.
You EF-and onwards owners wouldn't know you, you've got scarebags stuck in your bus sized steering wheel.
When I managed to get a smaller MOMO (factory style, with cruise pad and woodgrain ;)), it completely changed the feel of the car, so much better to drive.

Marshall,just spoke to my young son,who issues RWCs,and he says there is no issue with steering wheel size. The car's insurance company,could possibly have an issue with it though.
