Hi Guys! I am having some problems with my Xbox 360 Wheel and have decided to buy a new wheel.


What do you recommend?


Thank you very much

For wheel. I have only owned DFGT and G27.

But i think for now these are best options. And i can recommend G27. It's really good and it has all. Wheel, pedals and shifter.


Logitech DFGT, Logitech G27, Thrustmaster T500RS or Thrustmaster T300RS , fanatec clubsport


Both Thrustmaster and fanatec clubsport wheels have add ons. New wheel rims, pedals and shifters.


Here are some pointers that i can think..

And google is your friend here.


Logitech DFGT

- max rotation 900 degrees

- cheapest

- plastic feel

- no clutch

- sequential shifter on wheel base

- really small shift paddles

- best wheel under 150€


Logitech G27

- rotation 900 degree

- cheaper than thrustmasters

- 6 speed shifter ( no sequential)

- 3 pedals so clutch is included

- wheel is metal and leather

- best overall wheel bundle on market (MY OPINION)



- rotation 1080 degrees

- 3 pedals 

- you can change wheel ( BMW, F1 etc.)

- shifter sold separately

- you can reverse mount pedals



- rotation 1080 degrees

- no clutch

- shifter sold separately

- you can change wheel like on T500rs

- PS4 support


Fanatec clubsport

- rotation 900 degrees

- you can change wheels

- only wheel base

- everything needed to buy separately



If you are on tight budget go for G27.

If you have money to spend T500RS.

No budget =  Fanatec?

I haw tried out T500RS and the pedals are miles behind compared to G27 pedals . The wheel is ok but shifter pads dont move with the wheel that bothered me  .


G27 is the way to go  - unless it is 3th option Fanatec

And to save you some time Fanatec kit comes around 1200 eur .

I'm quite sure all mainstream wheels are good.

There's plenty of video reviews about all of the above mentioned in the youtube, take an afternoon off, and watch them all and you'll have a good picture of what you want and what you don't. Then save some money and trouble and buy the one you think suits you the best.


I'd also like to point out that Fanatec actually has some cheaper options too, Like this or this. I've heard they're on same level as the 'industry standard' G27. No need to go for the 1200€ set straight away. ;)


I have DFGT for a wheel. The wheel it self is pretty decent, but the pedals in that set are not. There are plenty of easy hacks to fix it starting from shoving a squash ball under the brake pedal to preloading the springs... But yeah. Plastic spatula is a plastic spatula, no matter what you do to it.. :)

if you are on a budjet go for the g27, i know there are wheels for less, but in the long run/long term thats the best money can get. good FFB, plenty of buttons, a very nice and solid pedal-set and an H-box shifter thats not bad if your not trying to yank godspeed out of it :ph34r:


do like we do with gaz in our automobiles, we calculate how far we go for our money, the same is valid for the hardware we enjoy our free time with. for me the g27 comes to fractions of cents per miles, so its a nice deal B)

I don't recommend DFGT (have it myself). No support, need custom .ini to work normally. Reading guides.

Oh and the pedals are plastic fantastic and the wheel is a lot louder than G27.

SQ: 820ish -- Miles Raced: 12000 -- Team: ATS -- RIG: DFGT + TV

Need advice for gaming build or workstation? Ask me, don't be so shy.

This wheel add on and there is no problem ;)


For only "best wheel on SRW" it's hard.. almost every wheel is bundled with pedals/shifter.

If you plan buying pedals like fanatec clubsports or some other product you will have extra pedals if you buy Thrustmaster / logitech products.

But then again some of our best drivers use DFGT and are really happy with it. I liked mine too before it broke down and i bought G27.

When i have enought money to spend on simulation again i'm thinking to buy that T500RS wheel with add on that moves paddles too.

But then again i don't have anything bad to say about G27 and i can stick with it... And maybe fix it if it breaks down one day. :D
