Pretty sure it's plastic. US Berlinas got a similar plastic woodgrain wheel, but this is from a non-US market car. Doesn't have enough dish for US. You know what it came off?

Previous owner claimed ďGiulia SuperĒ, barely spoke English (Greek). Itís definitely European spec..

Itís plastic, thoughts on me:

1. Filling cracks with epoxy
2. Sanding
3. Primer spray paint
4. Black spray paint (gloss black?)

That's the way some folks do it. You could put a leather cover on it too ;-)

Not sure why you would try to "make it better" by painting it?
Leave it alone, and get one that works for you.
Absolutely no point in stripping away originality and painting - which will wear off and look like cr** in no time. I mean really? Have some respect. That crack represents character !

Sorry. Didn't mean to sound condescending at all. Just trying to help.

I removed many black plastic wheels in my past, and replaced with alfa/personal wood ones. Now, however, I'm putting the black ones back on. Tastes change with time.

I would just set it aside for now, and buy a black plastic one. You never know.

But, be aware, black or brown, they are all pretty much cracked. Maybe someone can chine in on restoration of these. I imagine black epoxy is a little easier to match. I would not try to paint it - either color. Myself, I would just look past it. Once you have your foot in it, you won't notice that little crack!

I've refurbished 3 wood steering wheels, 1- Hellebore, 2- Personal.
what I found in the process of paint was to mount the "ready to paint" wheel on a lazy-susan & spin wheel holding paint stationary.
I put on five coats.
Worked well for me

This is plastic, not wood. Yes, Euro Super seems right.
Go Todd!

I believe the original post stated... "wood look" steering wheel....not "wood". I was told by one Alfista more familiar with Berlinas that the "wood look" ones were fitted on Berlinas. As for restoring the plastic ones that are badly cracked, I came across this link...

In the US market, yes, "wood look" was just 2000 Berlinas. That would cover Canada too. But I've seen these on non-US Giulia sedans, etc. Again, the dish for the US market was way deeper than they used elsewhere.
