I like the rubber coated ones. You can get the big 3 spoke stainless ones on eBay for decent deals. Finding a good knob was harder. I found one that you drill through the wheel so it nice and clean. I couldn't find a rubber coated 3 spoke at the time. Still can't find a rubber coated 3-spoke. I sold my last boat in a hurry and forgot to take it off.

Hmm can't find a picture on my phone, I have a 5 spoke now. I think standard size is 13.5".

Here's the steering knob I like, no brackets off the side to catch, http://www.gemlux.com/catalog/steering-accessores/1504

It is being discontinued, I paid way more for mine when I got it.

I put these on my last two Zodiacs and just bought another one. Feels good on the hands and wallet ($50 on Amazon).

I've installed this one on most of my boats:

SCHMITT MARINE STEERING 13.5" Destroyer Wheel with Control Knob | West Marine

The brodie knob is already built in and we haven't been able to snap one off yet.

I have a Destroyer wheel similar to Troy's pic. I wrapped the bare SS with some seine twine to give a bit more grip when it's wet (as a diver, it's usually wet.)

I made a bracket to offset the (aftermarket - mine was just a wheel at purchase) knob inside the wheel diameter so I can still wrap the wheel around normally without the knob getting in the way. If I remember right, I epoxied a piece of aluminum tubing onto a spoke and clamped the knob to that.

I use a Schmitt Destroyer.

115hp 4stroke with a Teleflex NFB helm...no problems turning at speed or with torque steer.

Looks like a wheel from an old school hot rod.
