So, long story short, I have a prosthetic left leg and my car is a 5 speed. I don't have any problem hitting the clutch, but my leg gets hung up on the rather giant steering wheel or car comes with. Does anyone have any recommendations on a nice looking smaller one. I have been looking around and I haven't really seen anything that looks right in our cars.

Id suggest any reputable aftermarket steering wheel maker. You can get variable amounts of dish, diameter, and spacers to put the steering wheel wherever you might need it. Try staying away from the ebay knock off wheels. They are unsafe, poor quality, and definitely won't last you forever like a quality one will.

I put a memo in a customer's car 12 years ago, before there were so many knockoffs.  It fit well with a mitsu adapter, and still felt right.  The dish was shallow, but the adapter moved it out about 3" and made up the difference well.  Don't recall the name for sure, but I think modena 360 rings a bell.

Awesome, thank you guys. I'm definitely going to stay away from the knock offs, last thing I want is to lose steering while driving the car (Had that happen in my old Jeep, it sucked a lot)

Sorry I don't have a part number, but this is what it looked like in the car.  It had a semi-flat bottom, which I think would help with what you are describing.
