The MP is the model that launched Max Papis Inc. It is the lightest stock car steel wheel on the market, comes in 4 different sizes (13”,14”, 15”, 16”), 2 different grip thickness (O and OE), and incorporates the MPI Safety™ u-channel and double rivets technology.
Safety is always on the forefront of all MPI products. The inner structure has been engineered to deform under elevated impacts, absorbing the load and reducing the effects on the driver’s upper body, offering an engineered safety advantage. The inner foam injection has been developed to have the highest vibration absorption rate in the industry. The special oval shaped grip makes holding the wheel a natural feel for the driver.
Two grip shapes are offered: O and OE. The O version has a more rounded style grip with a consistent radius around the wheel, making it feel slightly thicker. It is the preferred choice for drivers that tend to move their hands on the wheel. The OE version is a more oval shaped grip with pronounced thumb inserts that feel slightly thinner, promoting a firmer grip. This is the preferred choice for drivers that keep a consistent hand position on the wheel.
The selected suede covering and its hand stitched finish, give a very high grip feel, reducing the effort needed to hold the wheel while increasing driver feeling. The MPI Orange™ marker helps both driver and crew chief get a visual reference of the steering wheel position.
Each wheel is individually serial numbered for traceability and comes complete with the MPI love, attention to detail, and a super light center pad for added driver protection.
