I actually like the Grant Elite series and have the same 4 spoke version on both my Monte and Regal.
I also like that it is 14" in diameter and these have the vinyl grip which is very comfortable.
I did also buy a shorter billet adapter instead of using their metal 2" version with styling sleeve.

565, that is a good looking steering wheel! I like the looks of the stock wheel but if I were to change, it would be the one you have or the one the OP is asking about. I like the look of that wheel too! Both choices you can’t go wrong.

IMO factory steering wheels are too large in diameter for a Gbody and buying a 70-72' reproduction one at the hefty price of $368 seems only justifiable if you actually own a 70-72' Cutlass, there are plenty of more affordable aftermarket steering wheels out there with a similar look.

I agree that the stock wheel is a large in diameter. I like the looks of the batwing but not the size. All the modifications I did to my car are far from stock but I have an OCD to keep the looks of my car as close to stock as I can. Don’t ask why because I don’t have a good answer. Just how my mind works. A company makes exact replicas of 69-72 Chevy truck wheel in a smaller diameter. Maybe someday that will happen with the batwing wheel.

@565bbchevy anyway you can get a picture of the adapter that you are talking about.

yea i don't want to pay so much for a repop wheel. i like the looks of it and wouldn't mind something similar. i tend to like 15" wheel over a 14: though for some reason.
