Who makes the better Steering Wheel?

For the investment which manufacturer makes the better steering wheel?

A. Budnik
B. Billet Specialties

Granted both offer attractive custom wheel designs, but for all of th serious Pro Touring builders in which direction did you end up with and why?

Getting ready to install a tilt column and want to top it off with the better of the two.

thanks...

I'm sorry I'm of no help... I went with Momo! Who can resist that Italian leather? Love the wheel.

Re: Who makes the better Steering Wheel?

Yeah, the half wrap is the way to go. This past weekend I was at the Super Chevy show in Bristol, TN. Great show as always perfect weather and some outstanding Chevys. Most all 69 Camaro trailer queens at the show had Billet Specialties steering wheels. They just look right.
I'll be placing an order soon.
