The Moto-Lita name is one synonymous with quality. During the companies 50 year history Mota-Lita handcrafted products have been selected for use as original equipment in some of the worlds finest motorcars including Aston Martin, AC, Shelby Mustang, Austin Healey, Caterham, Jaguar, Jensen, Lister, Lola, TVR, and Rolls Royce.
Each Moto-Lita Steering Wheel comes finished with a hand stitched leather rim featuring a rubber underlay for an improved tactile feel. One spoke features the engraved Moto-Lita signature.
The 380mm/15in size diameter Moto-Lita wheel provides a larger diameter option than the majority of other aftermarket wheels whose maximum diameter wheel size is 14in/350mm. Crucially the 15in Moto-Lita wheel looks and feels right at home in the Defender. If you're looking for that little bit of extra room under you knees, we recommend the 15in Moto-Lita wheel.
Moto-Lita steering wheels and their bosses are not interchangeable with any other type of steering wheel or boss, eg: Momo, OMP, Raid, Mountney etc. Please note that Moto-Lita steering wheels are not a mass-produced product. All Moto-Lita wheels are handmade to order.
Moto-Lita Steering Wheel Bosses
Moto-Lita steering wheels will not fit straight onto your existing steering column. In order to fit a Moto-Lita steering wheel or indeed any other aftermarket steering wheel onto a Land Rover you will also need an adaptor or 'Boss' kit.
The Boss suffix numbers refer to the number of splines on the steering column shaft. If you're in any doubt as to which boss you require or you're maybe looking to upgrade your existing aftermarket steering wheel with a Mota-Lita wheel then the only 100% accurate way to tell which boss you need is to remove the steering wheel. With the steering wheel removed you will be able to accurately count the splines on the end of the column.
What steering wheel boss?
The narrow rimmed four spoke steering wheel was used on the earliest vehicles up until and including the 200Tdi models.
If your Land Rover Defender is fitted with this kind of steering wheel select a 36 Spline Boss in either polished or black finish.
