    I am hunting for a rim with the shape very similar or exactly the same as the Thrustmaster TX rim? It´s a ferrari replica but shrinked I believe. F458? I want the same diameter 280 mm and if possible with rubber grip (due to using rubber gloves).

    Anybody have an idea where to look? It´s for an upcoming directdrive wheel so must be sturdy no plastics ;)

    The real wheel is probably designed and made by Ferrari so it will be difficult to find exact match.
    Here are some similar which you probably know all ready:

    This one is one ugly duckling and wrong for you needs but it would be nice for GT/Prototype cars with display:

    Just ordered this wheel for OK price so this one will be main SimuCube wheel...probably. :)

    The f1 inspired one that was new. But I think I want a 280 mm and relatively round seem to be better for the wrist going by the Thrustmaster f1 one. Got a 300mm and 320 mm already though I get better grip with rubber and rubber glovesthen worn suede. If I get suede gloves they wear down in notime as well.
