We love the look and feel of the CorkSport Mazdaspeed steering wheels and thought we would throw some love to the Miata guys. Designed to inspire confidence during aggressive driving while improving day to day comfort, this steering wheel is a complete package and will complement your other CorkSport Performance Upgrades.
The CorkSport Steering wheel is a direct OE replacement as it retains all trim, buttons, airbag, and even paddle shifters for automatic models. It’s also a perfect fit for all ND Miata models (yes even those of you with a RF). Check out the image below, it shows exactly what you will get in the box (right) next to an assembled performance steering wheel (left). Once you remove your OE wheel you just need to transfer all of the trim and accessories and you’re ready to install.
In designing the wheel we knew we wanted performance without sacrificing comfort. Let’s face it, the steering wheel is the one thing you are (hopefully) always touching while driving. We knew right away we wanted a thicker wheel as the stock one is awkwardly thin. We increased thickness without increasing the overall diameter of the wheel.
The flat bottom of the wheel makes it easier to get in and out of the car, especially for those of us who barely fit in Miatas anyways. To further enhance the aggressive style we added a center stripe to the top of the wheel. Finally we carried over the deep thumb grooves from the CorkSport Mazdaspeed 3 steering wheels to really lock your hands in place during spirited driving.
All of the features are wrapped up in plush black leather, with perforated leather on the high use areas to keep your hands cool. If that wasn’t enough we’ve also added an option for alcantara inserts. Why? Because Racecar!
If you’re looking for an easy mod that will upgrade the feel, comfort, and style of your ND Mx5 let the CorkSport Steering Wheel find a home in your interior.

Yes, I said the “A” word, but before we dig into the detail let’s talk steering wheels in general.
The steering wheel in your Mazda (and most all other cars) is probably one of the most used yet disregarded parts of the vehicle. Its round, it has buttons for controls and the horn, and in modern cars and airbag which could save your life one day. More or less we don’t notice because it just works, but what if we could make that a much more exciting part of your Mazda?
There are few, if not any, other components that you interface with more than the steering wheel so why not give it the attention it needs without sacrifice? At CorkSport we did just that.
Every CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel is designed with you, The Driver, in mind. We want you to be connected to your car and the experience it can provide you every single day. The performance design is inspired by race only steering wheels without the sacrifice. Thick grips with countered thumb grooves provide a secure and comfortable control surface. High quality smooth and perforated leather is used for durability and breathability in tense driving situations. These all come together without compromise, retaining your OEM controls, horn, and most importantly the airbag.
Now back to that “A” word…
A few years ago we introduced the CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel for the 2nd Generation Mazdaspeed 3. We were super excited to bring such an awesome performance part to the community and even more stoked by how much love that steering wheel has received over the years. Today we are happy to announce that a select few of the CorkSport Performance Steering Wheels are getting some extra awesomeness real soon.
Say it with me…Alcantara…
That’s right; we’ve heard you and we’re calling you out. In a very short time, we will be launching the Alcantara Leather option for the 2010-2013 Mazdaspeed 3, 2016+ MX-5, and 2014-2016 Mazda 3.
If you’ve been on the edge about a CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel; well the wait is over. I can’t say enough what a change a steering wheel makes to the driving experience. It really is like getting a whole new car and now it can be even better with Alcantara.
Don’t wait or it might be too late!
