Think a Momo model 12 is the one people have if going for flat bottom type.

Have you got a lowered floor? I'm 6'1" in an S3 with S type seats and the lowered floor made more room between knee and wheel (now a 280mm model 26) but also opened up the foot well meaning I can get my clutch foot in a resting position.

I have a 270mm model 29 and a 280mm model 26. 

29 is flat top and bottom. 

Both are fine getting in and out, the flat top on the 29 makes it easier to see shift lights.

Used a Momo Mod27 270mm on my old car for a while. TBH I only bought it because I saw it on Ebay half price and thought I'd give it a go, as at the time I also had a flat bottom wheel on another car.  
For road use I personally found it less than ideal when having to turn the wheel significantly, having to adjust your grip positions on the wheel etc. and certainly noticeable when parking, and therefore eventually reverted back to a "standard" wheel

I thought the split steering wheels were an MOT failure

This SPA 255mm D-shaped suede wheel works well for me. Tillet seat, 5'8" and standard floor. Can be seen in action here

I'm 6'1" and have just had a lowered floor fitted.

A big improvement in several ways for me.

1996 K series 1.6 S3 Supersport with leather seats.

270mm round Momo wheel.

It's easier getting in

Plenty of leg clearance to the wheel

Better pedal access 

Less wind buffering

I feel  more "in the car"!

It is a bit harder getting out!

Very happy I had it done
