Thinking of a new steering wheel for my 91

I have been thinking about getting a more modern looking steering wheel for my 91 Prostar. I like the looks of the Grant 457, it looks close to the same shape and design, just more modern.

What are your thoughts on it?

here is shot of the factory 91 steering wheel and then the Grant 457.

As in the late 80's? I like those too, but as you can see my factory wheel has the same design shape as the new 457.

If you can see it, on my old wheel, the spokes have openings in all three... the two side spokes looks about the same as the Grant 457, but the bottom is a different.

Thanks for the options though!
