Can anyone recommend a quality bolt on steering wheel that's preferably 12 inches in diameter? I would prefer a setup where I can easily go back to the original if needed. I have a 81 4 speed and I could use more room to operate the clutch. Thanks!!!

Check the Grant website. They should have plenty to choose from.

Shocked   Oh NO you DINT!!! LOL
You're a bad man Gary....a bad bad man....LOL Besides...I think that's a 10 incher.

But really.. Grant would be the place to start. Just remember that Corvettes take a "special" adapter, and, depending on what wheel ya get, it may be really close to the turn sig stalk.

I had a Grant removable wheel on my 1969 standard column.  The adapter adds enough length to the column so that the wheel pushed into my belly and driving was uncomfortable. 

I've switched to a tilt/telescoping column with a stock wheel and have plenty of space now (lost 35 pounds too!)  I have the Grant and adapter somewhere in the parts forest called my garage.
