5 great gaming steering wheels

There’s nothing quite like the exhilarating feeling of hurtling down a road at a breakneck speed behind the wheel of a car.

However, if you’re not rich enough, old enough, or perhaps the track is closed, then racing games are at the very least a good distraction.

The best way to enjoy these games is with a gaming steering wheel, as it can make the experience far more enjoyable as well as a bit more realistic.

Below are five gaming steering wheels at a reasonable price point for aspiring racers.

All steering wheels were priced from Takealot and all prices were accurate at the time of writing.


1. Thrustmaster Steering Wheel – TMX Pro (Xbox One/PC) – R9,999

If you are willing to shop at the higher end of the range, the Thrustmaster Steering Wheel – TMX Pro is compatible with Xbox One and PC.

This wheel has a 900 force feedback system and a metal 3-pedal set with fully adjustable spacing, inclination, and height.

If you’d like to add a manual transmission, it is also compatible with the TH8A Shifter, although it is sold separately and is currently priced at R3,499.

The Thrustmaster Steering Wheel – TMX Pro is an excellent choice if you’re looking for high quality.


2. FI-PXN V9 Gaming Steering Wheel with 3 Pedals & Gear Shifter – R4,997
