    Read the Sim Racing Paddock 2020 Wheel Buyer's Guide: simracingpaddock.com/sim-hw/2020-sim-racing-wheel-buyers-guide/
    Looking to get a new Sim Racing wheel in the near future? Then check out this wheel buyer's guide! I originally created a Buyer's Guide in 2017, with a minor revision in 2018, but now, it's time for a total revamp of the guide, featuring all the major wheels available for Sim Racers entering this new decade.
    Unlike my Previous Wheel Buyer's Guide that focused SPECIFICALLY on the PC, I decided to make this guide an all-encapsulating guide, highlighting the wide variety of products available. Hopefully you can find what you're looking for in this guide!

Fanatec's post COVID 19 prices are ridiculous. It's probably a USA thing considering the leadership, but still... What the hell?

I just want to have a fully realistic car and drive off-road, but since my dad died I can't drive anymore... I just want to press that goddamn clutch and release it slowly! No automatic clutches or/and when starting the car. If I'm in gear and the clutch is not pressed the car needs to slowly move as I crank the engine (not good for the car I know). Basically just have a fully realistic driving game, it would be even better if it was off road! If there is a game like this please reply to my comment

What about the T500 RS? Isn't it compatible cause it is to old? I like the fixed shift pedals instead of the rotating ones, and because of that I'm considering to buy that. Thank you for the good guide!

Is the Thrustmaster T80 worth the price? I'm buying a wheel for its smoothness when using it, not force feedback or any other features

Vor 8 Tage

The Devil

don't buy it! the t80 is crap, you'll regret buying it. better save a bit more for a t150 or tmx, depending on which device you are using. ffb, even if you just have it on very low settings, is important - trust me. without ffb you don't feel anything from the car and have to drive it purely based on what you see on screen. feels horrible.

Different categories but what do you think is the better option between the fanatec club sport wheel base and the Accuforce direct drive. It seems that at just a $100 difference the Accuforce is he way to go. Strictly comparing wheel base prices only.

Logitech dfgt wheels go usually for 50€ in Finland, i found one second hand for 30€ with four games, i offered him 20€ for the wheel (without games) so... stonks i play beamng with the dfgt, i cant find drivers that work for my dfgt/computer so its only 200~ degrees of rotation but hey it has force feedback and is way better than under 100€ wheels

Why do edgy sim racers insist on calling the decks or bases "wheels" and the wheels "rims'...? It's retarded. You have a CSL Elite base that is interchangeable with Fanatec steering wheels. Stop it.

Hi William, In february I decided to go the direct drive way, as my Thrustmaster TX started to get calibration issues. The Simagic M10 looked like an option at first, but it was a PITA trying to get some reliable information on dimensions, weight and mounting hole patterns. The AccuForce went off the list as soon as I got to know what shipping and taxes would add to the price when buying it from Germany. Then I got to know about Sim-Plicity and finally preordered a SW8C+, which I got three weeks ago. I think it's worth mentioning that, contrary to its predecessor SW7C+, it does not even get lukewarm. It shares the same motor with its bigger brother (SW13C+), a MiGE 110ST-M06030 rated at 6NM. Perhaps the 13NM version might bring the motor somewhere near its limits, but the 8NM wheel is a very chill dude. Hopefully you get the chance to review one of those two new compact bases soon.

I've always wanted a wheel, but tbh I'm just poor. Also I always get in the top 3% or better with my controller so I really just can't bring myself to pull the trigger so to speak on such a large purchase. Almost all these setups with pedals and the like are going to cost me more than my entire console itself. Plus I maybe play like 3 driving games a year on a really good year nowadays :/

I'm a Chinese and Simagic is more like a one-off, fan made product. They DO want to make good stuff, but lack of experience and funding. Besides, they sell their product at a lower price in China, we can get the full set for about 500$ including shipping. If you are living outside China, then I don't recommend you buying the Simagic.

Gear drive wheels are too slow if it rotates on its own. Really bad for counter steering during a drifting session.

G29 can be used on ps3 OR ps4. There's a switch on the top of the wheel hub. Should note that when on the ps4, the selection wheel is a bit gimpy at times and doesnt always register when you want to alter things like traction control or brake balance.

i have a t150 since 2017, definitely drove over 1000 hours with it so far. never had any issues. i think the quality control isn't so good at thrustmaster, so it's more likely that a wheel isn't put together perfectly and gets issues soon. but if you get one that's fine, it will work fine for years.

Thanks for this. I recently grabbed my Thrustmaster T500 RS servo and pedals with the Ferrari F1 racing wheel out of storage to play F1 2019. I forgot how fun it is. I had to stop using it in my old apartment because the feedback was so loud when I would hit the curb or crash that my downstairs neighbour could hear it and it bothered her. In my new apartment, it's not an issue and my daughter loves to watch me play! I play on PC only. I also have the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog kit that I hope someday I will get the motivation to re-learn and play DCS A-10C with.
