Early R129 steering wheel diameter

I need a favor.
I have an 86 R107 and would like to change to a smaller size steering wheel, but I want to keep the car as original looking as possible. Early R129’s used the same style. Can somebody tell me what the outside diameter is of an early R129 steering wheel?

On R129's (and I think is the same on the W140) the OD of a wooden steering wheel is 385mm the leather standard is 400mm.
