Default *Aftermarket Impala steering wheel

I am thinking of buying one of those 15 inch Impala steering wheels for my 57.
It has either an idit or a flaming river aftermarket tilt column and I'm wondering if any of you ever did this conversion. The ad in Southern Rods says it will fit agtermarket columns but I want to be sure before I buy it.
thanks

The spline should be the same to fit the wheel, not sure how it will look when it cups up to the aftermarket column gap and fitting between the bottom of the wheel and column

do you have power steering? reason i ask, is because if you don't the smaller wheel makes u-turns and other type turning hard. the bigger steering wheel just makes it easier driving.

wheel fit on my Ididit Tilt column with no problem. Ididit also has a chrome ring that fits onto a depression on the original wheel for looks.

I have an Ididit paintable tilt steering column in my 56 Bel Air, which is in the final phase of restoration.

I need to decide on a steering wheel.

I am looking for a diameter of either 15 or 16 inches.

I am also looking for a steering wheel that can be color tinted without being painted. My experience with painted steering wheels is that the color wears off on the part of the wheel where your hands hold the wheel.

But that was 30 years ago. Is this still an issue with painted steering wheels?

I am currently considering 3 options:

1. Aftermarket 15 inch wheel in the 1959-1960 Impala style - this wheel would have to be painted, probably a dark blue to match the Harbor Blue on the dash. $389.99 list price plus cost to paint wheel

2. Aftermarket 16 inch wheel in the 1957 Bel Air style - this wheel would have to be painted, probably a dark blue to match the Harbor Blue on the dash. $399.99 list price plus cost to paint the wheel

3. Aftermarket Con2r 15 inch steering wheel, 3 spoke design, two tone color rim (dark blue and light blue). $390.00 plus a possible horn button option for an additional $158, total of $548.00

Thoughts?

Thanks for all the replies. Southern Rods claims these wheels fit aftermarket columns if you order the right one, but I wanted to see if anyone on here had done it.
There is a picture of a 55 in their ad on line with the wheel and it looks really cool.
So I am going for it.

In the sixties when these steering wheels first came out, I saw a lot of them used on customs of all years .

Yes I have the CPP power steering set up. Power with a 18 :1 ratio. It's a great modern set up if you are looking for better handling.

What's the difference between the $280 and the $189 wheel? Does installing the seperator clips cost that much to install, that you need to take off to paint?
