Top 8 Force Feedback Steering Wheels

By

Force Feedback support has come a long way in racing sims and now some sim racers believe that Force Feedback wheels are the only way to go. Here are the best Force Feedback wheels available on the market today.

1. Logitech G27 Racing Wheel

The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel is a great wheel. However I don't believe the new features justify an upgrade for current Logitech G25 users. As long as the G25 is still available and significantly cheaper than the G27 the G25 is the better buy.

I am giving the G27 5 stars because it is truly the best force-feedback PC and PS3 racing wheel on the market, but it is hard to recommend over the G25 which is still available for significantly less money. If you've got money to burn and have to have the latest and greatest then go for the G27, otherwise the G25 is still the best choice while it is still available.

2. Logitech G25 Racing Wheel

The Logitech G25 Racing Wheel is the finest force-feedback steering wheel available today. The G25 Racing Wheel features stainless steel, aluminum and leather components which highlight the overall quality of this wheel. The G25 costs a bit more than the other wheels available but if you take your sim racing seriously it is well worth it.

3. Logitech Momo Racing

Take everything good about the Logitech Momo Force and add better pedals, a stick shifter and a lower price and you've got a solid Force Feedback wheel that would make a great second choice if the G25 doesn't fit your budget.

4. Logitech Momo Force

Compared to the mostly-plastic wheels that preceded it, the Logitech Momo Force's handstitched leather wheel and metal components just scream quality. This wheel is hard to find these days and has been largely replaced by the G25.

5. Thrustmaster's NASCAR Pro Force Feedback Wheel

Great feel, comfortable grip, good force effects, configurable buttons and great pedals! Thrustmaster's NASCAR Pro Force Feedback Wheel is a winner from top to bottom.

6. Logitech Wingman Formula Force

The reigning Force Feedback champion until the newer generation of wheels came along, the Logitech Wingman Formula Force is still a great wheel. Some people prefer the shorter pedal travel that this wheel features.

7. Act Labs Force RS

The Act Labs wheels have a loyal following among sim racers. The thick wheel is very comfortable to hold but I just didn't care for the overall feel as well as the other wheels that I tested.

8. Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback

Wheel has exceptional programmability and good force feedback effects but the pedals need some work before this wheel can move up on the list.
