iRacing is one of the best sim racing experiences on the planet and is enjoying serious attention in 2020. But to get involved, you're going to want a good wheel, and whether you're just starting or looking for something to take that next step, these great wheels are the ones to get.

On the right track

The equipment is only part of the sim racing experience, but a good wheel will undoubtedly make your time in iRacing much more enjoyable. If you're looking for something substantial that also doesn't break the bank, you get a lot with the Thrustmaster T300 RS GT (opens in new tab). It's a great wheel at an attractive price that also includes a full three-pedal setup, so you just plug it all in and be on your way.

The Thrustmaster TS-XW (opens in new tab) is an excellent step up to the next level, especially with the value of the ecosystem behind it and the additional bonus of Xbox One support for the days you fancy something else. Ultimately, though, if you're serious and you have the budget, Direct Drive is where you need to be headed, and Fanatec's Podium is an absolutely amazing Direct Drive wheel.
