I like the black foam rubber 10" diameter jobs w/the chrome spokes and no horn button/cap.

Momo steering wheel w/Momo steering wheel hub adapter p/n 2702. Ain't cheap, but some of their wheels are gorgeous, IMO. Lecarra is another option.

I have never seen a grant wheel that did not require the correct adapter to mount it..just saying..

I had the same trouble with 81 vette. Reman sterring wheel $300+. No way am I paying that. Check out Corvette Central or Willcox. They should have a direct bolt on. Got this one for the 81. $85

Unfortunately the '84 is a totally different animal. Even the $81 Wilcox wheel above is up to $90, w/o cap. Still a hell of a bargain if it were available like that for the '84...
