Nope...the Ford steering column is a "Keyed" column.
The Mazda column is a "Spline" column...so they don't swap

A keyed wheel will fit a spline shaft, but a spline wheel will not fo on a keyed shaft..

This does not always ring true, a mazda wheel will fit a fiesta ... Also, ford ranger and mazda B-series pickups are interchangale. those are the only example I can think of off the top of my head.

Cliff notes:
Ford wheel will fit a mazda column.
Mazda will not fit a ford column.

there are no good looking ford steering wheels IMHO...
You can get an aftermarket wheel, because the companies make "steering wheel instalation kits" AKA adapeters. Because most aftermarket wheel don't directly "bolt on" to any car column.
