I have restored several original Springal wood steering wheels and Edo91 wheels look good and they are thicker than the original wheels. It helped with a better grip witch was the draw-back for racing with the thinner wheels as they did not have the full metal rim like in the later wheels.
There was a Business and Ventor listing section where Edo91 could have made his wheels available. It seems to have been dropped some time ago. I had my knockoff spinner tools listed with a long history over the years and have made several attempts for information and a reason for the change. Hopefully, you can do better.
I have a mint horn and hub with the metal spokes but need a wood rim. PM me
