    Personally, I like the Z28 wheels from 78-81. Come in colors that match the OE interiors and aren't flimsy like most aftermarket wheels.

    Since my wheel is all chewed up from what seems to be the P/Os dog, I'll be picking up a burgundy T Type wheel in the future to match my Rega's interior. Here's a pic of an '87 Limited with the wheel I want. May upgrade to buckets and console in the future.

    This is not my car but I found a black Pontiac wheel like this that has the arrow head horn button rather than the Firebird emblem. I think it works well on a Pontiac.

    Small world, I've been looking heavily at what type of wheel i wanna put in my cutlass once i get to the interior. I've honestly looked at so many different styles, but i keep coming back to the T Type wheel. I believe it's probably the best looking factory g body steering wheels out there, my opinion of course.

    Like Ribbedroof, I got the 4 spoke wheel. Mine came out of a '80's Cavalier that I dyed to match. If I was to go with another wheel it would be the '69-'70 three spoke wheel.
