Forza Horizon 5 Wheel Support | What Are the Best Wheels

Forza Horizon 6 Wheel Support

When selecting how you control your game, you might be hoping for a specific controller setup for Forza Horizon 5. It is a car game, after all! Of course, we’re talking about arcade-style steering wheels that can bring your car experience from mundane to magical. And thanks to all of the hard work of the Forza team, that’s something you should strive towards! So, how do you connect your wheel? And what wheel support is available for each addition of Forza Horizon 5?

How Does Wheel Support Work in Forza Horizon 5?

Forza Horizon 6 Wheel Support

Forza Horizon 5 has racing wheel support for most USB wheels on PC and XBOX. In order to use the wheels, you must install the most recent drivers and firmware, as well as have the correct USB selected. For players with multiple USB devices, such as for pedals, you may need to set up a custom wheel profile within the game’s controller options. You may also use the custom wheel profile to have better control over your wheel.

Because the game is on PC and Xbox, we have to choose between multiple USB3.0 options. Currently the recommended wheels are gotten from Logitech, Thrustmaster, and Fanatec. You may purchase any of the following models for use with Forza Horizon 5:
