Pretty much all of them can work, there's adapters that can be used.

Personally I think they all look like crap on modern cars like these with a chunky square column, but to each their own. With a 93 I'd opt for a SC wheel personally, those have a nice thick rim

I put a basic Grant wheel on my FX Lincoln. The adapter is pretty flimsy and does not lock onto the steering shaft nearly as well as the factory wheel did. I also messed up a little when I got the wheel and I did not pay attention to the amount of dish that the wheel had. I am unable to pull the multifunction switch back far enough to change between high and low beams. I will be needing to get another wheel with more dish in the future.

1995 T-Bird. PI 4.6. Bullitt intake. Big MHS cams. 4,200 Dirty Dogg converter. Kooks headers. Full exhaust. 4" Drive Shaft. 4:10s.
Waiting on a tune.

Remember, our cars use the standard ford column that was also used on the taurus and mustang. So anything that can fit a 1994-2004 mustang will work.

That's a sweet wheel. About what year and model is that from? And from which old country?
