The wheel you listed is arguably less than entry-level, as it doesn’t have force feedback and that’s arguably one of the most important parts of any serious sim racing wheel.
Since your budget’s $150 i’d suggest the Thrustmaster T150, decent, fairly small but it’s got FFB and is a solid jumping in point to the sim racing hobby/market.
I use this wheel
It isn't horrifically expensive, and it's probably the best cheap (ish) wheel you can buy
For me, force feedback is an absolute must, it makes driving so much more immersive. You could find a decent wheel for cheaper, but it won't have force feedback.
Not sure why I got downvoted, but the T-150 is actually on sale right now for $149.99: [link]
The cheapest wheel worth getting is probably the Thrustmaster T150. You can typically find them around the $150 range, not sure why they're this high all of the sudden.
I just would wait until you can justify spending that before getting one - like say you want to play Euro a lot, or play some racing games/sims. I just wouldn't bother with a wheel (personally) unless it had force feedback.
They're currently out of stock, but they were in stock a day or so ago. I feel your pain about spending. I've looked everywhere for a reasonably priced one. Just be glad you're not in Canada, that T150 is almost $300. I've used the DFGT before. It's a good wheel, but apparently this one is better
Thanks for the PSA. I was going to buy this Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback Racing Wheel for $77.99 from a just launched seller from the UK until I saw this. The racing wheel normally goes for $200 but is on sale for $129.99, so I had my doubts but his unresponsive to my message and this post helps clear things out.
Checkout the Thrustmaster T-150. It's $199 and I've been extremely happy with it. It also works for PS3 & PC.
Been considering getting one myself after seeing the awesome VR+racing wheel combo video thing.
From what i've found, these Thrustmaster wheel looks promising.. though a bit above your budge @$150. Check out /r/simracing for more info.
Cheapest wheel I'd recommend is the Thrustmaster T150.
True force feedback, 1080 degrees rotation. Only downside (to some) is no clutch or h-pattern shifter... but most people just getting in to racing games with a wheel will be perfectly happy with the paddle shifters.
As someone who is looking to buy a first wheel, what are the differences between this and the T150 for $200
Both seem to be 1080^o. I think the T150 is Belt and Gear whereas the T300RS is Dual Belt (edit: Oh does the T300RS have adjustable rotation?). But the biggest difference is the pedals it looks like. The description says the T300RS has "progressive resistance".
Basically for a first wheel, is the T300RS worth the 90 more dollars when $200 was really about the most I wanted to spend?
Edit: FUCK IT! Placed my order for the T300 RS. Too good a deal for a wheel normally twice the price of the T150. I hyped now. Free expedited delivery from B&H, Wednesday can't get here soon enough.
Yeah, the 360 had a few good entry-level wheel options, even wireless options. That was the same time that plastic instruments were flying off the shelves, though. Nowadays the only options are the $300 Logitech G29, which is just a repackaged G27 where they raised the price and took the h-shifter out of the box. Thrustmaster has a few options, including a new $200 wheel I didn't know about - it doesn't come with an h-shifter and those pedals look awful, but it has force feedback!
Thrust master T150. Got it on sale for $150. for [link]
Direct link to the item on Amazon, cutting out the middle man: [link]
Good price on a good basic/starter wheel & pedals.

I bought a new Thrustmaster T150 in January at Amazon.com for $188.20 (US). For the price, it seems to me like a good quality entry-level wheel so far. It works on PC, PS3, & PS4. It has paddle shifters & no clutch. Placing a grippy non-slip rug pad between the pedal base & the floor can help hold the pedals in place (if you don't mount them to something).
yea, its pretty tough in Dirt, but not too bad in Driveclub
Heres a link to the one I bought: [link]
And this will be my next purchase for VR racing: [link]
I miss a few bucks and i dont know how long the sale will last. But i found this one
is this good too?
Thrustmaster VG T150
- 29000 INR - [link]
- This is close to what I make in a month. Too expensive.
- 18000 INR, price close to Logitech G29 which is 21000 INR
The Thrustmaster T150 is going to be the cheapest wheel with force feedback and they are around $200 USD. I wouldn't even bother with a wheel that didn't have force feedback like the Thrustmaster T80.
The top wheels that are PlayStation compatable are the Thrustmaster T300 which is on sale right now for $300 or the Logitech G29 which is around $350
Works with PC has force feedback and pedals
This is probably the best one you can get for $200. [link]
Wheel & Pedals
$200 USD on amazon and newegg.
After getting frustrated by the sudden price increases on the DFGT and G27, I stumbled upon this gem. The pedals leave a bit to be desired, but they get the job done. The wheel is awesome! I've been playing Project Cars and American Truck Simulator all day and its been a total joy on both games. I highly recommend it for those who are new and on a budget.
If I couldn't fix the controller then I'd probably get a cool accessory I'd been wanting to make the wait for the VR knuckles easier.
This narrows your vr gaming options and will be annoying, but if you're like me, narrowing your options will still leave you with plenty to experience in your VR backlog.
I'd probably also use this as an opportunity to treat myself by getting a cool attachment, such as a racket, wheel, or HOTAS.
You're still paying about the same amount as you would to replace a controller. Except this way you are getting some direction (in terms of vr games to play) and something cool out of an unfortunate situation. You aren't 'wasting money' to replace something due to an accident, but are getting something that enhances your experience. (The knuckles controllers and any other fun attachment)
Is this a good option for you? Depends on what you can afford and what is important to you. What I like about this sort of option is that it allows a more positive way to look at the situation. The biggest unknown is how long it will take for the knuckles controllers to come out and how many quality games will come out in the mean time that require two track pads. You may be waiting until Summer or longer. Of course, it's not like you can't change your mind about waiting after waiting a while.
Also, I would probably find another cool use for your original controllers once the knuckles come in, such as them as foot trackers (if possible) or to be used in another way, such as VR mixed reality filming. Alternatively, you could sell them.
Well the PS4 version is $200 I wonder why?
Even this plus a pedal setup with the clutch is cheaper than the T300 hmm but I want the gear shifer and clutch
