does anyone know if 00 - 05 impalas can put aftermarket steering wheels on? I tried to use the search but I didn't find anything. Any suggestions would help. This is the wheel I want.

You would lose your air bag obviously, (all airbags, if one is screwed up, the system shuts down all the bags.) You'd lose the cruise control, unless you want to rewire the switches to some remote location.

But as for mounting, i have no clue, but I'll just guess that it won't work...

Also, it looks pretty dangerous, pinch fingers between the small spots on that wheel, and doesn't look like it would bend very well in the case of a crash.

EDIT
also looks like it would be pretty cold in the winter, being that it's pure metal. Might I also add uncomfortable...

Sorry if I sound mean man, just puting some thoughts out there!

Well you wouldn't have to worry about pinching your fingers if you're driving with your hands at 10 and 2! haha but yeah I agree with the airbag/accident stuff..this would be something cool for a show car, as a DD I am not too sure about. (looks cool but function is questionable)

Hmm... 1000 bucks for a dangerous addition to the vehicle. I'd pass.

1000!? F**K that lol. If you know a little bit about metal work you could make something similar yourself for a hell of a lot cheaper

The wheel is 500 bucks or so, but you also need a vehicle specific adapter for the low price of 450. Pretty ridiculous IMO.

Haha. See for yourself: http://www.streettrendsinc.com.....Code=BBODY

I'm also entertained by the fact that Firefox won't let me to Street Trends checkout page because its 'untrusted.'

I just bought a wheel for the wagon, $75 for the wheel and $14 for the adapter (and I thought that was crazy)

Someone has to be buying these at that price... I'd point the finger at the B-body Impala crowd.

Its the same ones screwing up an original SS by welding in some angle iron to lift it so they can roll on 30's Rolling Eyes

Nothing like taking a $20k car, adding $20k worth of crap to it, only to have a value of $5K when done. Laughing

You are correct about that. I misread the listing... but 500 bucks is still too much for that product.
