Looking for a great wheel to improve your Xbox One racing experience? Look no further.
When it comes to console racing, the Xbox One is very well equipped with the best titles around. Whether you’re a Forza fan or looking forward to the forthcoming Project Cars 2, Xbox is the place to be for racing on console.
If you’re getting serious about your virtual racing, then you’ll probably be interested in moving away from a controller and up to a wheel. And if you’re looking for the best, check out this little lot.
The Logitech G920 is one of the best all-rounders, in part because it’s often available at a discount thanks to being on the market for a while at this point.
The G920 is an exceptionally well-built product with built-in vibration motors, a 900-degree rotation, leather grip and a full three pedal setup. This means you can use the optional gearshift with it if you prefer those over the paddles, though it’s not included.
Logitech has a history of making great wheels, and the G920 is just the latest in that lineup. It’s priced around $260 right now, but that’s a sharp decrease from its original asking price. And it’s well worth it.
The TX from Thrustmaster has been around for a while now, but it’s still a top choice for Xbox One racers. It’s based on the wheel design from the Ferrari 458 Italia, right down to the switches and buttons on the wheel.
It’s as premium as it comes with glorious leather trim and metal pedals, though you do only get two of them. True to the 458 Italia, you’ll be using paddles only on this one unless you switch out the pedals at a later date.
It’s got a brushless motor, terrific force feedback and a full 900-degree rotation on top of looking the absolute business! It’s a little pricier than the Logitech at $350, but it definitely stands out.
Fanatec CSL Elite
There’s serious, and then there’s serious. Fanatec wheels are some of the most expensive you’ll find, but not without reason. If you want the ultimate, you probably want a Fanatec.
The core is the CSL Elite wheelbase which houses all the electronics and the motors. You’ll get 1080 degrees of rotation, advanced force feedback and even rev lights on the top of the unit. Fanatec has a complete system at its disposal, too, with shifters, improved pedals and more. It’s as close to the real thing as you’ll find.
The Fanatec CSL Elite also allows you to swap out the wheel itself, which in this case allows you to add a specific Xbox One compatible one. Clip it on, sit back, and hit the tarmac!
If your budget is a little tighter, then you might consider the TMX from Thrustmaster. At $200 it’s the cheapest here while still offering much of the same experience.
You’re still getting a sleek design, leather trim and 900-degree rotation with paddle shift. The pedals on the TMX are plastic, not metal, which is one of the areas the price has been trimmed.
The force feedback is still on point, and the pedals can actually be adjusted so you can get as comfortable as possible behind the wheel.
