dunno about airbags, I don't have them
but my 390mm wheel does obscure the top of the gauges. I am 5'8" and sit fairly regularly-positioned. I can't see the top of the speedo, or the fuel gauge, or the upper reaches of the rev counter. All countered with a look under or to one side. worth the minor inconvenience for ease of getting in an out, and the better feel to the steering.
