Best steering wheel for GT5

Price is not a problem. I am just looking around for later.

Those look nice but I might wait for a better deal. I don't know if that worth the price

What happened to "Price is not a problem?"

The Panatec wheel is supposed to the best no compromises wheel, but the Logitech Driving Force GT is the best value. Also I think either the G25 or G27 has a shifter and clutch.

Which would equal one of those rigs the real race car drivers have.
An actual race car cockpit to play any game or race sim they want.

Would could be only a few hundred, with a junk car shell and cheap game controllers to grab electronic inputs. And probably and understanding wifre or girlfriend to set it up in the lving room

I found this out the hard way. Do your research and make sure the steering wheel emulates the PS3 controller. Less and less developers are supporting steering wheels unless they emulate the controller so whatever expansive steering wheel you buy for GT5 could very well end up not being supported in any other racing game.

If price is not a problem than Logitech G27, I also have a play seat with gear shift holder. This is what I got, but there selling fast because of GT5

http://playseat.com/shop/us/playseat...itech-g27.html
But the lower priced ones are OUt of stock, might have to wait a week unless you buy the super expensive ones.

I've heard that most users like their G25s over the new G27s, but I don't own either at the moment. I would say get the G27 over the G25 though.



G27 Vs. G25

I've heard from some extreme enthusiasts that the Porche racing wheel has a much more authentic feel to it:
