Is that a steering wheel or wheels rims you're talking about?

I know I understand I would sacrifice the airbag with it and I'm fine with that to be honest

It's not just about what you're fine with.

Your car won't pass an MOT without it.

From the MOT Testers manual:

Re: (Re post) would this adapter work with this wheel for my 1.2 fiat 500

I'm not too worried I have a friendly mot tester and it's actually legal as there is no legislation on airbags although like you stated it could fail but I have a good mot tester all I want to know like I've asked is what kind of hub is needed I didn't ask if it would pass the mot or not not trying to sound rude but I just want to know what hub would work

It's not legal it's clearly shown in the mot manual that a removed airbag is a straight fail
There's no grey area or anything

Well if it passed your friends not tester isn't doing there job correctly and risks being struck off if reported
The only way it can pass legally with the airbag removed is if it car is extensively modified for competition use e.g rally car with roll cage external power cut off type things
