Below we have a number of 6 steering wheels are listed along with their pros and cons , some are the most top of the line while others are in the middle but no matter which ones they are , we have tried to include something for everyone.
6. Thrustmaster VG TX Racing Wheel – Leather Edition
with a name like that your probably wondering what it can do and you won’t be disappointed, this is a company that you will see twice in the list , the reason being that the model we are presenting to you now is the special leather edition. Now we know that looks are not everything but ideally we always want something that is not good in performance but is appealing to the eye as well.
With the Thrustmaster VG TC Racing wheel you get exactly that a first rate leather as well as exceptional performance. This wheel is quite reasonable considering how the leather is of fine quality, coupled with functions that are required in any steering wheel, the price you get this for is completely fair, and another good thing about this wheel is that it has one hell of a force feedback which is a must in any steering wheel you buy.
- Reasonable priced
- Fine quality of leather
- Great force feedback
- Supports PC and Xbox One
- Quality built
- Inverted pedalists
- Pedals plastic made
- Pedals not comfortable
5. HORI Racing Wheel One
Here is wheel that is actually officially certified by the Microsoft Company to be used with Xbox One, so it can’t get any more authentic than that and to top it off it is at a really reasonable price like $80 bucks, so it is best for the people who want a steering wheel but don’t want to go overboard with the money.
Now you will find that it does lack some of the features that you may find in another wheel like the force feedback which is so commonly used especially with games like Forza Motorsport. Also the mounting system that comes with this wheel may not be appealing to steering wheels fans as it uses a very simple mount made of suction cups to have it stick to the ground, although you may find this wheel mediocre but if your more price oriented and less bling oriented than this is definitely the wheel to go with.
- Extremely budget friendly
- Can play all the games that are played on the pricier wheels
- Made of plastic
- Mounting system not so good
- Does not support force feedback or vibrations
4. Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 – Italia Edition
Another make from the Thrustmaster and this may look familiar because it is the previous one that was reviewed is actually the leather edition and this is the non leather edition.
This one comes at a lesser price of about $300 but if you like a wow exterior than you may be disappointed as the only Wow element in this make is the Ferrari Branding in the middle, however other than that you may find it pretty simple , whereas the leather edition rocked it quite well with a lush leather feel but you need to carry extra cash for it as it is costly than this make to be exact the leather edition is for $470, but if your fine with a premium look then this model supports both Xbox One and PC and the built quality is really good and concrete.
The performance on this baby is splendid when we gave it a test run on games like GRID, Grand Theft Auto V and ForzaMotorsport, we were more than not disappointed we were actually moved by its performance and to top it off the force feedback was not only powerful but it was also intense.
So if you want to go ahead and buy this then you will be more than satisfied, yes you may not be thrown by the built and make but if you’re more performance oriented than this is definitely a keeper.
- Excellent performance
- Great force feedback
- Supports Xbox One and PC
- Comes with Ferrari branding
- Premium look
- No leather so premium feel too
- A bit pricy
- Built premium
3. Mad Catz Wireless Force
As the name states this is a steering wheel that is wireless and comes from one of the well known and reputable companies in the third party peripherals delivery, fanatics of Tekken and Street Fighter can get enough of this brand and it does have the typical Mad Catz design with a silver wheel and black lining around it, so it gives that classic look and what can we say about the way it performs? Well it passed with flying colors on games like Forza Motorsport, and on games like GTA V and Los Santos giving pretty amazing smooth drives and the force feedback top notch indeed with a solid robust response.
So what are the drawbacks of this $ 300 something wireless steering wheel? Well first of all you do need a power outlet to run it so it’s not all that wireless, secondly the built is amazing but the pedals look like they were taken from a very low grade metal material which makes you second guess it but other than few kinks here and there this is a nice model to lean on in the world of Xbox
- Renowned company
- Nice aesthetics
- Concrete built
- Top of the line force feedback
- Great performance
- Still need an outlet to run it
- Pedal quality not good
2. Thrustmaster VG Ferrari
If you are Ferrari enthusiasts then you have to get your hands on this wheel, you will find the Ferrari exterior all over this wheel and you will find that this is at an exceptionally low price like just for $90 talk about cheap! But how does this model play about as we can not only rely on the aesthetics and branding, well in my opinion the idea that it is so cheap made me think that the quality will be substandard but opening it up it was not that at all, the built was pretty concrete and the performance was also great on every game we ran it on.
The only thing that may be a drawback is the non existence of options that are found in other steering wheels, but other than that it is a pretty solid deal at whopping 90 bucks only.
- Ferrari branding included
- Pleasing to the eye
- Very reasonably priced
- Premium performance
- Premium built
- Lack of options on the wheel
- Constructed with plastic
