If you're a car enthusiast like us, looking to improve your driving experience, one simple and relatively inexpensive modification you can make is swapping out your stock or OEM shift knob for a custom weighted shift knob. Many opt for power options right out the gate but a simple and easy change you can make yourself is a shift knob tailored to your preferences. The emotion of driving and enhancing the experience doesn't start and stop with performance mods and wheels, it starts in the cockpit.

While it may seem like a small change, a custom shift knob can have a significant impact on your driving experience, providing a range of benefits that can enhance both your performance and enjoyment behind the wheel. We'll take a closer look at the benefits of a Billetworkz custom weighted shift knob compared to a stock or OEM shift knob, and why it might be a great place to start when modifying your car.

What's considered a Weighted Shift Knob?

A weighted shift knob is a shift knob that is noticeably heavier than a stock knob. The weight can be made from various materials such as stainless steel, brass, or tungsten, and is designed to provide a more substantial and satisfying feel when shifting gears. Billetworkz specializes in creating custom weighted shift knobs that are designed to fit a wide range of vehicles and can be customized with different colors, materials, and designs to suit your style.

We consider a shift knob to be weighted if it's more than 450 grams. Most stock shift knobs have a weight of about 200 grams. Be careful when shopping for a weighted shift knob from other companies, as they might be the same weight or only slightly heavier than the stock shift knob.

Take The Fusion for example. It's a pairing of our weighted design but options of either an Alcantara or Leather center core - the perfect combination for any interior matching. Plus, you're able to customize your color, go with a 5 or 6 speed velocity engraving pattern, or no pattern at all, keeping everything clean and eye-catching.
