    with mario kart wii coming with a wheel people are wondering where to get more, here are a few you can get. now you are on the quest ot get 3 more wheels for your wii-motes

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6527181
    dream gear has made a great wheel, so long as you have a desk or flat sureface to rest it on, but this is wii? you need the open space so this one will be an option for you gamers $25.00

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5334357
    next wii-wheel would be the ubisoft wheel, with the purchase of GT pro series wii, it comes with a black wii wheel that bears the name ubisoft, and if it says ubisoft, it says satisfaction. $20.00

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5334358
    3rdly, monster truck world circiut comes with a wheel, the game was made by ubisoft so the same wheel pretty much, again, $20.00

    http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=7790601
    and lastly EX gear has made a great set with 1 wheel and a controller pad. it's great and is the exact same shape as the ones stated above, except it's actually white!!!!! $20.00

    it depends, iamreptar... if the game is intense you may need more to hold than the ends of the remote... i'll take the free one with the game and make the decision from there. :yesnod:

    I don't think so. It's just for those who don't want to just use their Wiimotes to drive their karts.

    you still use your wiimote you just toss it in a plastic stearing wheel instead of holding it on both ends and turning it... just gives you more control and a real life feeling... i see them go used for 5 bucks tops alot of racing games include them free...

    I've seen some "universal" PC/PS/GC/Wii wheels on the market but i dont think they were bluetooth i think they were at best in the GC style so i haven't bothered buying one.. And the fact there hasnt been a game to "blow me away" racing wise yet. Once some realy good racing games come out i might check into them.

    http://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-Universal-Challenge-Racing-Wheel/dp/B000RJW1Y2


    I like the new standard racing setup its atleast a challenge over all these years racing with a joystick use, but i can understand where people would not like it making the years of "skills" useless...lol

    I like the racing peripheral aswell they give a nice change of pace if you set them up correctly... most of them are uncompfortable unless you have them ontop a desk, and fix it to each person every time you use it.
    With the Wii mote though it would end up still being cheep if more hit the market, it would be like GH guitar not mucth more than a really big chuck to plug your wii mote into and just extend the buttons for gas,break,clutch pedals to other places... Really suprised there hasnt been more attempts to make one yet.

    Probably best getting one bundled with a game, I mean they look the best and come with a game so you have nothing to lose really.

    Plus they are cheap.

    Thats about right, I assume nintendo will sell wheel peripherals not just the ones with the game. I'll wait to see how it is with and without before splurging on more wii accessories. If I do buy more wheels though, I'd rather they were all the same type, meaning I'll buy ones nintendo sells or get them free by doing surveys or something.

    ya know, i would consider have each of my 4 wheels unique, if they each feel nice... after all, the characters, cars, and items are unique... maybe it could make it feel even more fun? :)

    Valid point, I'm somewhat OCD though and wouldn't be comfortable with 4 different wheels. When I got my wii and started buying gamecube games, I was annoyed by the ones that had the yellow player's choice insignia on the side cause they didn't look good on the shelf next to the other games, ruined the uniformity, drove me crazy. Have to keep the player's choice next to each other. :wink:
