Recommended Posts

So as I said i'm looking for a steering wheel for about 50€, I know it's not much, but i'm not a hardcore racing gamer. What would you recommend?

check your local craigslist listings for a Locgitech Driving Force GT. They sometimes go for around that price. If not, then get a Logitech MOMO. Those are the cheapest best FFB wheels I know of.

Even if you are not a hardcore racing gamer, 50 are way too few for a decent wheel.

On that price range, the best you can get are cheap knock offs from chinesse OEMs, and believe me when I say you, they are not worthy.

After 6 months the pedals and the wheel itself will break.

Try to save a little more. Logitech have good products, starting with $150 Us (Driving force gt wheel + pedals, no clutch), everything below it will be a waste or your money.

Instead, try a xbox 360 wired or wireless gamepad version ($70 us i think) or a dual shock style (ps or not, makes no difference, just a personal preference)

you should be able to get old xbox 360 gear for cheap especially now.

 

I have a cheap chinese ebay wireless xbox controller adapter and my wireless xbox racing wheel hooked into my pc. I'm pretty sure the build quality of the xbox wheel would be on par with some of the pricier pc accessories.

If you want a good entry wheel save up for the Logitech Driving Force GT. Anything lower is not worth the price. I got one years ago and I cannot go back to racing with a Pad anymore.
