F1 2012 steering wheel help

4 replies 355 views Edited Feb 9, 2013

I'm wanting to take my racing to the next level.  I'm looking to get a useful force feedback wheel but which steering wheel should I start off with?  I'm not looking to break the bank on a Logitech G27.  If at all possible, I'd like to keep it under $100.00 USD

 

I've read some reviews on the Logitech Driving Force GT and it seems to be a pretty good fit but I just want to make sure that my i's are dotted and t's are crossed.  Is it fully compatable with F1 2012?  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your time! :smileyhappy:

There can be only one!

In the price range you mentioned, I can only think of one wheel, the Logitech, DF:GT.

 

Don't get anything less than that and I would highly recommend saving up for as good a wheel as you possibly can.

I have a Logitech Driv ing Force EX which works well with F12012.  It  has paddle shifters which are exactly what is needed with this game.

Thanks for the help MastrGT and Wastelander.  So I was on the right track.  So now it's between the EX and GT.  I've noticed that it's hard to come by an EX yet it seems there's a plethera of GT's out there still.  Would love to have the paddle shifters but will take the sequential stick shifter if that's all I can find.  I would start saving for the G27 but the wife would probably hang me! LOL
