    Steering Wheel for Win 8?


    Does anyone know of a pc steering wheel for racing games that has win 8 drivers? (or probably win 7 too)

    did you try the Logitech wheels? best compromise between price and performance.

    there are others but it depends on your budget.

    fanatec makes some fantastic wheels but they're pricey:

    Unfortunately I'm not THAT big of a gamer. I play around with some racing games and thought it'd be nice to have a wheel but it ain't worth that much to me.
    I may try the cheap Logitech one and see how it works out.
    Thanks again.

    I use a Logitech Wingman Formula GP. I initially purchased it for Windows XP, but it works perfectly in Windows 8. Bonus: It is automatically detected. No drivers needed.

    I was looking at the wingman. Is anyone familiar with the
    Genius Twin Vibration Feedback F1 Racing Wheel

    It's dirt cheap for a wheel but the reviews weren't bad.
