Default Steering wheel + hub

Hey guys i am currently looking for a steerwing wheel + hub for my 1990 2wd standard cab nissan hardbody, and i can't find any information on her.
For example, OEM steering wheel size + offset , and i can't seem to find a hub specificly for the hardbody, maybe the pathfinder hub is interchangable?

Has for the steering wheel, the truck is for daily driving and some ocasional drifting, i was considering buying a MOMO steering wheel, but since they are expensive i am kind of conserned it will get stolen =S.
What do you guys think about " cheap " steering wheels? Something like an OMP or smth?

Momo, Lecarra, Grant as well as others all make hubs for the Hardbody, Pathfinder should be the same:

application info from Lecarra:

Momo:

Grant:

90 Nissan (other years probably the same):

Sparco:

uses same hub as Momo

I will be getting a Lecarra thick grip steering wheel one day, had one way back and the extra thickness really feels good to hold

Any wheel+hub for a 240sx will fit our trucks. If you want to cheap out you can get one off ebay for like $40. Otherwise I would suggest NRG or Grip Royal if you want something in the middle range with out spending $300 plus.

Those will work.

I would advise against getting one with the red in the "E. Nardi" engraving. The genuine wheels do not have that and it cheapens the look.

At the moment i am only trying to switch the blue wheel on the truck because it really looks awfull, and trying to figure out if it is a flat wheel that i want and if the cube is 2 big to make a confortable riding position.
So basicly this is temporary, i am planing on getting an nrg hub and a momo wheel later, after i decide exactly what i want. But thanks for the tip

Generally the hub is designed to put a flat wheel in the position of the factory wheel. Most dished wheels have at least three inches of offset, which is a lot for the ergonomics and also creates quite a bit reach for the turn signal and wiper stalks. If the seller will provide dimensions of the hub you can measure this against your stock wheel to estimate where it will sit in the vehicle. In this truck I would like it to be about an inch closer to the dash from the stock position, ideally. They also make cheap wheels with no knockoff branding.

Went over this a while back for a different car. Wanted the dished Nardi because they look cool and I could have gotten one a bit cheaper than the flat wheel at the time, but I didn't want it to be in my chest. Happy with the way it came out.
