Steering Wheel adapter?

Before I remove my steering wheel from my 53 Hornet do they make an adapter to use after market wheels?
I can't justify paying $1,200 for a cut down wheel to 15". I have lowered and moved the seat back and still hit
the wheel. I am 6'2" and 260lb. Any HELP would be appreciated!!
Thanks anyone!!

     Check the Aftermarket Sites like Summit Racing or JC Whitney. Their Tech Dept can help with your questions.

     Keep in mind that a smaller steering wheel will be harder to steer and you will need to get a Universal Horn Button for side of column.

    (My '51 Hornet Racer has a small aftermarket spoke wheel that I purchased at Swap Meet so they do adapt)

    Have you looked to see if there is a stock wheel of some kind that fits? example: Chevy ,ford etc. If the splines are the same you could still have the horn and get a smaller wheel.
