I got my steering wheel from Forever Sharp Steering Wheels a few months ago. I realized that I would need an adapter so I ordered an adapter from Forever Sharp. A few days after placing my order, I got an email telling me that they didn't have any in stock but that the Grant Steering Wheels p/n 4266 was the same. So I ordered said adapter. If you can figure out how a 3-bolt adapter bolts up to a 5-bolt steering wheel, then mister, you're a better man than I. So now I have to build an adapter for the adapter. Someone needs a swift kick in the pants.

I built a wheel clearance checker as seen below. I attached the main radius arm to the wheel lugs to simulate the wheel mounting plane. I was then able to attach another cross piece to the radius arm. The cross piece would simulate the wheel width, and I could also check for wheel backspacing. I cycled the suspension up and down and turned the steering lock to lock in order to check for any potential clearance issues.

Now that I finally know what size wheel and tire I can fit, I'll be firing up the ol' debit card again and visiting tirerack.com to spend my real american dollars.
