The best Xbox One steering wheels

Sim Racer

E-sport driver & Sim Racing enthusiast, I decided to share my passion on this website.

Many Sim-racing fans lament the fact that Xbox One steering wheels are so rare on the market. It must be said that models compatible with the platforms of the green giant Microsoft are generally conspicuous by their absence. However, when it comes to games, players are more than spoiled on this platform which offers the best titles of the moment.

Whether you’re a fan of Forza or prefer Project Cars 2 or F1 2022, Xbox is the perfect medium for console racing.

So how do you choose the best Xbox One steering wheel? In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know to answer this question. We’ll help you determine which model is right for you, and then explain the essential criteria for choosing a good steering wheel model. And of course, we will present you with a selection of the best Xbox One steering wheels you can find on the market today.


The best Xbox One wheels at a glance


How to define which Xbox One wheel is right for you?

In order to define which model of Xbox One steering wheel is best for you, there are certain criteria you need to take into account, which we discuss here.

The type of player you are

Whether you are a beginner or an expert player and how much time you spend playing will help you decide which model of shuttlecock is right for you.

Your game platform

You need to make sure that the model you are going to buy is fully compatible with your console or simulation platform. Ideally, you should choose a model that offers broad compatibility if you want to be able to use it on several platforms (Xbox, PlayStation, PC…).

Your budget

What you are going to buy must fit the amount of money you have. The cheapest models can cost between 150 and 300 euros, while other more professional models can cost between 550 and 700 euros, or even more. Define your budget to determine which category of steering wheel range you can go for.

Type of races you want to play

The style of races you want to play are also an important factor to consider. If you are an F1 fan, it is recommended to turn to F1 design steering wheels, on the contrary if you prefer GT style, it is best to choose a GT steering wheel. In this sense, the shape of the steering wheel and some additional components should vary depending on the type of races you will be playing.

What to look for in a good Sim-racing wheel for Xbox One?

While budget is one of the first requirements for players and drivers to purchase a sim-racing wheel, there are other essential elements that must be considered. In our opinion, the main ones are the following:

  • The size and weight of the model must correspond to a real steering wheel for more realism.

  • The quality of materials and workmanship should ensure a long life for your steering wheel and should also provide comfort during play.
  • The degree of rotation of the steering wheel should be as wide as possible. In addition, it must have some resistance, just like a real steering wheel.

  • The steering wheel must be equipped with a force feedback. A steering wheel with no or little force feedback may not be satisfying to drive, and you may be at a disadvantage. For a total immersion in the game, the force feedback is essential!

  • It is important that your steering wheel model offers compatibility with future updates via firmware. This way, you can be sure that it is compatible with future game consoles of the brand.

  • Installation and configuration should be easy, especially if you are a beginner player.

  • It’s a real plus that the steering wheel offers compatibility with additional accessories. This ensures that you can add a shifter and that it attaches to the base without major problems.
