It depends on the Wheel...Small ones are illegal not sure of the size and sum full steel onse are illegal too as they dont bend or brake during a crash...if ur gettin one from Eg Autobarn, Super cheap they will be able to tell you if it is or isnt..for the insurance if it illegal ur insurance is voided if they find it....

if your car has an airbag [ being acclaim i'll put that down as yes ] then no you cant have an after market one, as for insurance, as always its just a case of letting them know and maybe throwing xamount more on your premium so its covered.

i think the limiting diametre is about 30cm, And it needs to be ADR approved, If it had a airbag fitted it must still have one. I told b\my insurance company and they didnt seam to care.

THere are aftermarket wheels around that are designed for VS with airbag - leather, colour coded options available. momo iirc. About $350+. You could get your existing wheel upholstered in leather - your choice of colour, for about $240. If fitted - the airbag MUST stay. No legal way around that.
