Do you have your own room or space that you can put something more sturdy in?
Mickymouse something temporary until you can save up for something more sturdy than what you mentioned. If that is all you have for now then just watch how rough you get when turning the wheel.

Depends on how stable the stand is, but yes they can work. Right now I'm using a "Walmart Special" stand, a cheap $18 student computer desk thing, that I had available at the time. It's functional but not perfect as it's not balanced correctly and has too much "wobble", though if you have any basic skill with tools (and the inclination to do so) it's possible to throw together a decent wheel stand for $50 or less with supplies from your local hardware store.

Do you have the means to make one out of wood? Mine is made out of 2x4's and plywood. I ordered the racing seat off Amazon. It's crude but the seat is comfy, foot pedals, steering wheel and shifter are at perfect length and position. So while it's not much to look at, it's works. I got mine setup in my own 'man cave' room down in the basement so it sits in the middle of the floor 24/7. However, if I did have to move it, it does seperate in two sections for easier portability.
Anyway, all you would need is some plywood, 2x4's and some screws. Tools required would be a circular saw and a drill.
Sorry the pic quality isn't that great, but you get the idea. You can also see the blu-tooth keyboard and that blue thing next to it is a book light I got at Barnes and Noble that plugs into an outlet. So I can be playing in low light and still have the keyboard lit up for typing.
just search this forum for "Driving Rig" or "cockpit" and you will find many threads that show some good store-bought and homemade rigs...
(and yes you will need something rather sturdy. if it wobbles at all, no good.)

Heck, hellsoul you can even go see what your neighbourhood Pick-a-Part has to offer. Maybe you can find a nice driving seat there for alot cheaper than what is online. Give it a look over.

would a Tv Dinner Stand or a laptop stand be a cheap alternative then a legit racing wheel stand? i wasn't aware that the stands are just as expensive as the wheel or even more :/
You want something sturdy, so have a look through this thread. Lots of great ideas, all different, mostly inexpensive or easy to make.
