Racing gamers are having a great time of things recently. There have been some huge releases in the past few weeks, with none bigger than Gran Turismo 7! GT7 has seriously impressed us, and to see exactly why, check out our full review of the game.
Things can get very competitive when it comes to Gran Turismo. So, we've got a way for you to get the edge over your opponents in GT7. Having a set of pedals and a racing wheel is a great way to improve your lap times, but how do you set it up? We've got everything you need to know right here!
The right wheel
Much like cars, racing wheels come in a variety of packages to suit different budgets and needs. We've given our take on the best wheels for Gran Turismo 7 in this article. However, you can use any wheel that is compatible with either the PlayStation 4 or PS5, depending which system you're using.
To make sure that your wheel is connected to your PlayStation, you'll need to head into a race. It doesn't matter which race this is, you just need to go to the pre-drive menu. Go into your settings and then controller settings. From here, you can choose whether you're playing with a wheel or a controller.
You can also go into your PS4 or PS5's home menu to see whether the wheel has been registered and is working correctly.
As for the settings you're using for assists, treat them like you would a controller. The difference here though is that it's easier to control things such as traction control, manual gearbox and ABS. Get a feel for what you can handle in time trial or another single player mode before trying this out online.
