To help you get the most out of Gran Turismo 7, we’ve put together a handy guide for the best wheels for GT7, with recommendations to suit every budget.  

If the GT DD Pro is too expensive for you, then the Logitech G923 wheel in our guide might be more suitable. With its excellent force feedback and affordable price, it's our pick for the best all-rounder.

If you're on a tighter budget, there are plenty of entry-level wheels that will still enhance your GT7 experience such as the Thrustmaster T150 and Hori RWA Apex.

For PS5 owners, the Thrustmaster T-GT II is also a great option if you can afford it. With its real-time drift curve calculation system, smooth force feedback, and high-quality pedals, it's one of the most advanced wheels you can buy for PS5.
