About this deal

Then there is the upgraded screen which is now using modern OLED technology. It displays a bright white readout of elements such as your speed, RPM and more. Read why the GT DD Pro is one of the best PS5-compatible racing wheels in our GT DD Pro in-depth guide. You want higher-end features and quality: Being rather basic and affordable comes at the cost of what could be an unsatisfying experience for many.

While the Thrustmaster T248 does slightly beat the Logitech G923 in its overall performance, I do think the quality of design and finish still lies with the G923. Whichever racing wheel you prefer, both the T248 and G923 offer great console racing performance at a reasonable price. If you are looking for the absolute best racing wheel for PS5, go for the Fanatec Podium F1 racing wheel. You may have noticed that so far we haven’t included a Thrustmaster product in our PS5 steering wheel recommendations. The reason for this is purely down to how good some wheels from other brands currently are. Logitech have you covered for the best entry-level PS5 steering wheel, and Fantaec has a variety of options as you move up the price range.


The original McLaren GT3 wheel was great however, the improvements that Fanatec has made put this wheel in a class of its own. In most cases, you will require these additional peripherals to be from the same brand as your racing wheel. If you have a Logitech G923 for example, only a Logitech shifter will be compatible. And if you race with a Fanatec CSL DD wheel base, only a Fanatec shifter will be directly compatible on PS5. And to this day, this wheel base is the only true plug and play direct drive wheel base that is compatible with PS5. So if you’re after an all-in-one racing wheel and pedal bundle for your PS5 or a wheel base for your Fanatec setup, you won’t find much better than the GT DD Pro.

As well as Sony confirming that this wheel will work on both PS4 and PS5, Fanatec themselves have also confirmed that their current lineup of PlayStation compatible wheels will work with next-gen consoles. This allows us to buy a PS5 steering wheel with the confidence that it will work well. The direct drive technology inside the Podium F1 wheel base is capable of creating forces that exceed 20Nm! To put this in perspective, the Fanatec CSL Elite wheel base that we spoke about earlier only puts out 6Nm, and even that is enough to give your arms a workout!Both steering wheels wouldn’t look out of place in a real-world open-wheeled race car, and both feel great to race with. The Formula V2.5X does include a wider range of inputs and is built to a slightly higher quality. But both steering wheels excel within their respective price ranges. Fanatec Formula V2.5X

With many racing wheels, you can connect additional peripherals such as gear shifters and handbrakes. These add to the levels of immersion that you experience. Shifting manually with a H-pattern shifter and clutch can increase your levels of control as well as immersion. And handbrakes are crucial if you are drifting or rallying.Mid-level racing wheels such as the Fanatec CSL DD and GT DD Pro generate around 5-8Nm of torque. This is strong enough for a lot of sim racers. This will portray most of the forces felt in-game to a strong level.
