    Father's Day is around the corner so it's time for me to start dropping some hints to the family :)
    Currently I'm using the Fanatec McLaren wheel but I'd like to get another GT wheel but I can't decide between the..
    • Porsche 918 RSR
    • ClubSport GT Forza Motorsport (leather grip)
    • ClubSport GT XBOX ONE AUS (suede leather grip)
    • ClubSport Steering Wheel R300

    I'm using the v2.5 base but don't use high ffb strength.

    I love the ffb fidelity coming through the McLaren wheel but I'm wondering how the heavier GT wheels feels?
    If you have both wheels I'd love your opinion.

    Does the 33cm wide GT rim feel too "wide"?

    And finally which is more comfortable; the leather or suede grip?

    Thanks for your feedback

    My rim is 30cm and it's just right, 1:1 size with real R8 GT3 wheel. The lighter and more rigid the better, 33cm sounds way too large for GT cars in my opinion. I get the best feel with suede grip and driving gloves. If you dislike using gloves then leather is only smart option.

    320mm is the size used in Porsche cup cars and a lot of touring cars. Anywhere between 300 and 330 is fine for a round wheel. If you like to do rallying then consider a slightly larger 350mm rim.

    In short pick the rim that matches the cars you most like to drive. Also consider the universal hub and a "real" wheel.
