Question where do you place your steering wheel...

just curious....where others may find the "best" position to be....mine is all the way in (toward the cluster) and up as far as it will go (so I can see all the gauges) / I imagine this also has a lot to do with seat position and height as well....just throwing the topic out there

This is probably a very hard thing to describe,

My steering wheel is similar to yours, but mine is pulled out just a bit and lowered

All the way in and down all the way.

Supposedly the ideal distance allows you to place both wrists on top of the wheel while having arms slightly bent. Seat height allows approx three finger distance between head and headliner with seat back slightly passed 90 degrees. Pedal distance should be such where you can jam the brake pedal to the floor while.having slightly.bent knee.

You of course want to be able to see the gauge cluster..
