VRS DirectForce Pro Compatible Steering Wheel Options
Many VRS DirectForce Pro (DFP) purchasers didn’t own a compatible steering wheel already, so they purchased one separately. VRS does not sell its own steering wheels yet, so we surveyed current DFP owners to see which steering wheels they purchased, and compiled the most popular solutions. Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey. We hope you find this list helpful!
To be compatible with the VRS hub clamp, the connection to the wheel/button plate must be a 3 or 6 screw 70mm PCD pattern. Most “Direct Drive/ OSW compatible” wheels will have this pattern. Some real-world steering wheels, and Fanatec/Thrustmaster wheels require an adapter.
Price differences often come down to build quality, materials, and functionality. VRS is NOT endorsing any of these products nor responsible for your customer experience, so please do your own due diligence.
