    350mm Momo Mod 68 or 70 Suede. Whichever one doesn't have bumps at 10-2. Great on track.

    I love my Momo 330mm Mod 78 (round, no dish, leather). I feel like 350mm is just a tad too large, and despite having no power assist am completely comfortable with the 330 size.

    I've got a mod 78 330mm but I think I would get a thicker wheel in the same diameter next time. Maybe Sparco R323 or R383.

    Only reason to go Sparco for the thicker rim? I only ask because it's significantly more expensive than the Momo options.

    I think I have the same Momo wheel as most other Miata drivers around here. I'm fine with it although I might need a little more spacer.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    There's probably a couple of options out there but I don't believe Momo makes a thicker rim.

    Sparco seems to be better made than Momo.
    Just my personal observation, I've seen small imperfections on Momo wheels that I've never seen on Sparcos... I'm probably nit picking.

    No experience with Sparco but my first Mod series Momo started peeling apart after a couple months. Exchanged it with Momo out in RSM since I'm local. No issues since, seemed to be defect.

    +1. Except 330mm, and not in a Miata.

    It really is something you need to scratch and sniff. That is go and touch and feel the thickness of the wheel and the shape of the grip. Dish is also significant in that it is determined by how close you sit. Me with long arms, short legs I went for a flat dish.

    Loving this one. http://http://www.revolutionracegear.com.au/index.php?PCID=10542&PSO=245&PSID=606201 22&PSV=Primary&CDO=
