I stumbled across a great deal on rolf prima vector wheels. The only issues is they are splined for Campy 9+, and my drive train is Campy record/chorus 8 speed. Can I affix a different freehub to this wheelset to make it compatible?

If it was a genuine Campy hub yes. But what you can do is replace the spacers with Campy 8 sp versions. Then drop one cog on the cassette. You will have converted your 0 sp to an 8 sp. Now you can go back and forth between 8,9,10 and 11 sp. Good luck on the project.
