Since the PS5 release date in November 2020, plenty of sim racing drivers have started wondering what were the best steering wheels to race with it.

Just like with the older versions of the console, there are many different steering wheel options to choose from when it comes to PS5.

All of which have their own benefits and drawbacks.

To help you make a decision on which steering wheel is best for you, we’ve put together a list of 5 of what we believe are the best wheels for PS5.

We know how frustrating it can be to deal with dozens of different choices, so hopefully this list will help you make a better decision on what wheel to buy.

Here’s the list of the 5 best racing wheels for PS5:

  1. Fanatec CSL elite
  2. Thrustmaster T-GT 2
  3. Logitech G29
  4. Thrustmaster T248
  5. Fanatec Clubsport F1 2021

These are the 5 best steering wheels for PS5 that are available on the market right now.

Let’s now get deep in each one of these wheels.

Fanatec CSL elite

The Fanatec CSL Elite is the second most expensive wheel on this list, though one of the best ones.

This wheel has everything that you could possibly want in a racing wheel.

It has great build quality, it feels amazing to drive and it has a gazillion of features.

The Fanatec CSL Elite is a top of the line racing wheel that offers top notch performance.

Force Feedback (FFB)

The Fanatec’s FFB is strong and precise, the wheel is very responsive and it doesn’t need a crazy amount of power to have the FFB working at it’s best.

The general feel of the wheel is quite similar to that of a real F1 or Gt3 car.

At this price point there are very few steering wheels that can compare to it in terms of overall performance.

Compatibile only with PS5?

It’s also worth mentioning that this wheel works with PC, Xbox One and PS4, which makes it a great option for those who own multiple gaming platforms.

However, all of these features do come at a price since the CSL elite is the most expensive steering wheel on this list.

How much does it cost?

The steering wheel costs $499.95 though that also includes the Fanatec force feedback which makes the price a real bargain.

Despite the relatively high price, the Fanatec CSL Elite is still a great choice for anyone.

Where can I buy it?

You can purchase the CSL Elite directly from their website and not from Amazon unfortunately.


Thrustmaster T-GT 2

The Thrustmasters T-GT 2 comes as a direct competitor to the Fanatec CSL Elite.

It is also quite expensive, but it does offer some pretty awesome features.

Most notably the fact that is has been designed in collaboration with Gran Turismo’s developers.

It’s also important to note that has build specifically for Playstation 5 which is definetely a plus.

It comes with three sets of pedals, a shifter, and the wheel itself.

Force Feedback (FFB)

The FFB from the Thrustmaster T-GT is one of the best we’ve tested so far.

It’s very powerful, precise and it feels great when you’re driving.

Despite not being quite as good as the Fanatec in terms of strength, the FFB from this wheel is still very reliable and realistic.

It’s also worth noting that you can change the strength of the FFB on this wheel at any time, which is a nice bonus.

Compatibile only with PS5?

Just like the Fanatec, this wheel also works with PC, PS4 and PS4.

How much does it cost?

The wheel costs a bit more than Fanatec CSL though remember that it will include also the default set of pedalse from Thrusmaster.

It’s the single most expensive steering wheel on the list but the price is justified by it’s feedback quality, features and performance.

Where can I buy it?

The Thrustmaster T-GT can be bought on Amazon or the Thrustmaster Website.

You can check here the current prices here on Amazon.


Logitech G29

The next steering wheel on the list is the Logitech G29.

This wheel is a bit cheaper than the Fanatec and the Thrustmaster, but it still offers some great features.

The G29 is a great wheel for those who are looking for a cheaper option without sacrificing quality too much.

Despite originally being compatible only with Ps4, the company has recently announced that the wheel will also work with Playstation 5. Awesome news, isn’t it?

This is a great bonus for those who already own the G29 and it makes this wheel a great choice for those who are looking to upgrade their sim racing setup in the near future.

Force Feedback (FFB)

The FFB from the Logitech G29 is not as good as that from the Fanatec or the Thrustmaster, but it’s still reallygood.

The FFb is not as “strong” as the more expensive options, but it still feels great when you’re driving and it’s definitely more than enough for most people.

Compatibile only with PS5?

Just like the Thrustmaster and the Fanatec, the Logitech G29 is also compatible with PC, PS4 and PS5, though it also includes the compatibility with Xbox one.

How much does it cost?

The wheel doesn’t cost that much to be honest.

It’s way less then the other ssteering wheels listed.

Where can I buy it?

You can purchase it on Amazon and you can check the current prices here.


Thrustmaster T248

Now it’s time to take a look at the Thrustmaster T248.

This wheel is not as expensive as the first three mentioned adn it’s also cheaper than the Thrusmaster T-GT we’ve previosuly mentioned.

It also comes in a bundle with a set of magnetic pedals and paddle shifters which makes it even more attractive.

Force Feedback (FFB)

The Thrustmaster’s FFB is really good and it’s definitely one of the best we’ve tried.

It’s precise, strong and realistic.

Just like the more advanced and expensive ones.

Sure, it won’t be as awesome as a $5,000 steering wheel, though it’s still a great option for those who are looking for a good quality wheel without spending a fortune.

Compatibile only with PS5?

Nope. Luckily it’s compatible with PC and Playstation 4.

Where can I buy it?

You can buy the wheel directly on Amazon and you can check its current prices here.

Remember that it’s bundled with a set of magnetic pedals and paddle shifters, so you’re definitely getting more for your money.


Fanatec Clubsport F1 2021

fanatec clubsport f1 2020

Last but not least we’ve got the Fanatec Clubsport F1 2021.

This wheel only costs $399 and it’s the cheapest option you can get.

The quality of the materials as well as the design is just stunning, and it’s definitely a wheel that will turn some heads.

The only downside is that it doesn’t include the force feedback therefore you’d have to purchase a separate one in order to run the Clubsport F1 2020.

Force Feedback (FFB)

The force feedback can cost up to $400 so if you add them all up you’ll have to spend around $800 in order to get the full racing experience.

However, the wheel is still a great option for those who are looking for an affordable steering wheel while already having a Fanatec force feedback themselves.

Compatibile only with PS5?

The wheel is compatible with PC and Playstation 4, but it won’t work with Xbox one.

How much does it cost?

As previously mentioned, it costs only $399 and it’s definitely a great option for those who are looking for a Fanatec steering wheel while already owning a force feedback from the same manufacturer.

Where can I buy it?

You can buy it directly from the Fanatec online store but not from Amazon unfortunately.
