To put on an aftermarket wheel, you will need a hub adapter. I did mod a horn contact, because the slip ring for horn and cruise will have to go. I fabbed up a GM style spring loaded horn contact. I then relocated my cruise control switches. I have a 2nd gen. with no air bag. I not know much about the 3rd gen. column or air bag clearances. Obviously your OK with losing the air bag. Make sure to have the battery disconnected for a while prior to messing with the air bag. I found the hub for the best price at zxtuner.com I had to mod it slightly also to accommodate for the horn wires. It is a five bolt Grant/APC style hub. If you get that hub, any wheel that fits that 5 bolt pattern should fit. I found mine at Auto Zone (I KNOW...) for $30! It was the cheapest and "cleanest".
