Pretty sure it will. The Sentra "Sport Coupe" has a nice wheel too.

well Ricebox i hated so much my wheel that i changed it.. its the big a** one with the recessed twin prongs, huge ! square fatty button... im not sure if you did saw this one anyway but as for my self i dislike it pretty much.... the one from the Pulsar (3 prong) got sweet line , not square edged like the one i had...

And for you info, the steering from 87 to 89 fits but 90 dont... (info i got form Grant steering looking into fitting kit...)

You probably can get an other model if you pass some time entering nissan car name and years... sentra 87 kit is #3596 if its the same ##, you got the same hub pattern...

look there http://www.grantproducts.com/idea.html and search model in the bottom of page... P.s u can use stanza,maxima,pulsar wheels... heheh dont put a year or model youll get the oll list... :) hope you find something !! :)

I have the two spoke steering wheel on my car to. I almost changed it for one from a sport coupe, but couldn't be bothered with doing the swap. You need a specialized tool to remove the old wheel.

Steering for style!

HEY! All of the non airbag Nissan vehicles steering wheel shaft mesh pattern is the same. Grab a four stud crow bar (looks like an X) pop off the horn pad, lock the wheel, one of those sockets will fit, find the one that fits, crank it off, remove the wheel like this if you do NOT have a puller. . . #1 Turn the wheel back to it's strait position, #2 Set a N, S, E, & W positions on the wheel, #3 Grab the north point and tug it, grab the south point and tug it, grab the east point and tug it, grab the west point and tug it. Keep doing that in THIS order and in a minute (depending on your power level) you will remove it without any damage to it or the inner shaft thread pattern.

Hint! If unsure of you power level grab a Hostess honey bun and a Mountain Dew. Consume these items, wait 20 minutes and you are freaki'n Lou Ferigno. snatch that wheel off! :mad:

Anybody got a Pic of a Pulsar Steering Wheel?

Anybody got a Picture of one of these famous, sexy-lookin Pulsar steering wheels? Been hearin alot about 'em.

Anybody ever try to install on an '02 Sentra GXE 1.8L ?
I despise airbag steering wheels, and was wanting to replace with a smaller Grant or similar.

No ralph nader preaching please... my first TEN cars and all my motorcycles never had no steenkin airbags nor antilock brakes.

Happy tuning & ride safe,

I just grabbed a pulsar wheel and went to install on my 87 sport coupe and found that it hit the steering collum plastic cover are the pulsar covers interchangeable I know that the dash parts are mounted almost identical is this the same for the collum?

Also if anyone is interested the pulsar center console dosn't look half bad in the sentra the biggest problems I had with it is that it gives you two ashtrays (hell of a place for an EQ or boost controller) and it is a little short at the dash but a little black felt (mine came from a z31 headlinner keeping it in the family) taped to the dash makes this almost unnoticable. and in my S/C if I have the rear seats folded down then the console lid won't lift up.
Also the power mirrors are a nice upgrade a little intensive on install time but I think worth it the mirror housing will bolt up to the mirror mount on a S/C and I am sure it will to a sentra with remote adjust mirrors. I am interested in the seats next I saw a really nice looking pair in the wrecking yard today soon my car will be a Sensar!

wath you can do : trim the plastic from the column cover with a dremel ... will look OE rather than cutting the plastic on steering ... thats wath i did, and looks OE there :)
and no the cover from the pulsar wont fit : the knob for the key release is not at the same place (i checked that last week :))

instead of the SC hashtray you can snapfit-in a 1st gen SAFC with ease :) (you know the one with 6 dials on it!!) thats wath i did :) ... it also divides the rear seats nicely !!... so you wont get any 3rd dumbass wanting to get in the back !! ;)

The only problem with the spliting of the rear seats for me is that my daughter, 2 years old thinks it is cool to kick it a little annoying. Thanks for the info on the cover plastics looks like my dremmel will need to be found tomarrow.
What else from a pulsar will fit into the S/C that will look good? I wanted to put the dash in form one but I did not think the door panels would interchange and the pulsar dash would look silly with out the door panels to go with it.

Another question will the pulsar ignition fit on the sentra column I think I may look into that cause I don't like permanent stuff like cutting what if I dicide to go back stock may look cheesy.

I put the pulsar wheel on my 90 also, didn't have to trim anything, I did have to make the metal ring that is on the back of the wheel ( that makes contact with the horn trigger) since the wheel I got off e-bay was missing the metal part. as far as removing the stock ( or any) wheel, just loosen the nut but don't remove it and grab the wheel on each side if you pull it towards you wiggling it back and forth it will pop right off, leaving the nut on prevents the wheel from smacking you in the chest.

Have you tried that on a 240 for some reason they like to keep their steering wheels.
I did some trim work on the plastics and still have a little bit more to do just hits in two spots but over all I am very happy with the look and feel of the pulsar wheel would recomend to anyone.
