Are steering wheels round, concentric about the hub?

In an old issue 1969 of Car and Driver it mentions that FoMoCo is going to install steering wheels with a bit more clearance at the bottom, for the lap. Due to drivers getting fatter. This was to apply to Mustangs, Cougars, Torino's and others of intermediate sizes. According to the article, there was only going to be about 1/2 inch difference. Not noticible.

I never took mine off to place on a lathe to measure if true.

But, are steering wheels concentric?

I remember my father's '73 Marquis had a odd shaped wheel , just slightly out of round. Nothing new really. In the 50's there were a few cars had almost square wheels. Stu
