In my opinion the best belt drive wheel for the money is the Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer - Thrustmaster VG Ts-Xw Racer - Thrustmaster T-GT Racer they are all pretty much the same base other than the Thrustmaster T-GT has the transducer. As far as direct drive wheels the SimXperience AccuForce v2 Direct Drive Wheel, has no competition in its price range. The complete setup minus pedals can be had for about 900 us throughout the year. Less if you want to use one of the rims, you already own ( even thrustmasters rims can be converted to work ) 600-650 us with a coupon code. Even without a coupon code 700 us is a good deal, in my opinion. With that said you can't count out the Logitech G series wheels, some of the fastest people in sim racing use them. I guess it goes to show, you cant buy fast you ether are or your not.
