You would have to check the pitch circle of hub & also the new wheel. You will also have to check where the holes are drilled in wheel some are drilled @ 12 & 6 o clock others are drilled @ 11  & 1 o clock. If  you turn the hub to suit the wheel it will then cause  your blinkers not to cancel on one side.The other problem you will have is the tele function on the column incorporating a locking method.
Could be done but a lot of work have done a couple with aftermarket wheels

Nope will not fit if it's the black sports wheel from the HQ onwards.
HK to Ht will fit as will the early LC Toranas.

If it's a genuine HQss wheel it would be worth quite a bit . (sell it n buy an original vette wheel or after market replicia ) much easier

Thanks for the replies
What about a "vega" aftermarket wheel, I read somewhere they are the same.

I found an aftermarket replacement at corvette parts worldwide which looks OK (it must be silver) for $400.00 which seems a lot.
The cheapest freight is $138, which is the killer.

I agree, buy a wheel that looks like it belongs there, it'll make the car look that much classier.
