The most basic component of an Xbox steering wheel is the wheel itself. There are some important things which you will need to consider with regard to the wheel construction to be able to select a good steering wheel. The wheel should be ergonomically made so that it is comfortable and convenient to use while playing a racing game. It’s also a good thing to make sure that the assembly of the wheel is up to the standards.


Pedals are another important part of a steering wheel set without which the steering wheel is incomplete. The difference that you will find in the expensive steering wheels and the cheap ones will be in the quality of the pedal as well. The low-quality ones will be made of plastic and wont be very sturdy and robust for excessive use. The good quality ones will be made of stronger materials and will also include the latest technology of ‘load cell’. This technology senses and responds to the pressure exerted by the user thus giving a more realistic experience while playing a racing game.


Clutch is another vital part of the steering wheel set. It should be present in the gear box that comes with the steering wheel. With a clutch, you can expect a more realistic experience while playing the racing games. However, even some of the best quality steering wheels will not include a clutch and will work just fine without it.
