Best steering wheel for Gran Turismo 7

Best steering wheel for Gran Turismo 7: The best racing wheels for the big PS5 driving simulator

Chief among Sony’s PS5 games reveals earlier this year was Gran Turismo 7, the first numbered game in the legendary series since GT6 way back on the PS3. But with the customer base likely to be small for a year or so after the console’s release, the possibility of a release on PS4 merits discussion.

To that end, here our some picks for the best steering wheel for Gran Turismo 7 on PS4. Obviously we don’t yet know what racing wheels will be compatible with the PS5, but we’ll update this article when we do…

The best premium steering wheel: Logitech G29

A brilliant racing setup

For properly good racing gameplay, the Logitech G29 Driving Force racing wheel and pedals offers the very best option for PS4 gamers.

Made of hand-stitched leather, the wheel features an unrivalled 900-degree turn radius and dual motor force feedback for a realistic feel. It also comes with a self-calibrating pedal set, adjustable to fit your frame.

Don’t forget to pick up the shifter, too!

The best mid-range steering wheel: Hori RWA Apex

A great choice for new racers

It might not feel quite as premium as the Logitech option, but the Hori RWA Apex racing wheel and pedals are a great choice for PS4 gamers new to racing.

Officially licensed by Sony, the Apex allows you to switch quickly between handling modes, adjust your dead-zone calibration and customise your buttons to how you like. It also includes a clamp for securing the wheel to a desk.

The best budget steering wheel: Subsonic Wheel

For the enthusiasts

If you’re looking for a wheel which makes you feel like you’re in the cockpit of a sports car, Thrustmaster’s T80 Ferrari 488 GTB racing wheel is perfect for you.

Designed specifically for PS4, this wheel boasts realistic linear wheel resistance with automatic re-centring, while the pedals feature adjustable inclination and a wide footrest for ultra-precise, comfortable control.

The best elite steering wheel: Fanatec CSL Elite
