    Steering wheel

    So one of my 95's steering wheel is going to hell. It is a non airbag wheel. Is there a difference between the non air bag and air bag wheels? I don't know how much searching I'm going to have to do to find one yet but I have a feeling that I might be hard pressed to find a non airbag wheel.
