I recently bought a car with the airbags deployed. I was wondering if I could just put an aftermarket steering wheel on it and it will pass inspection.

If your car has an OBD2 port then it probably wont pass inspection unless you replace the air bags. OBD2 (on board diagnostics) is on all vehicles built after 1995 and NC inspection stations will hook up a scan tool to the OBD port. If you car is a 1996 or newer I doubt it will pass inspection with deployed air bags.
