To set up the PC driving wheel, all you need to do is follow these three steps:

Install the PC Driving Wheel

Install the Appropriate Driver

Configure your PC Driving Wheel

Step 1: Install The PC Driving Wheel

The process for different PC Wheel brands would be different and can be checked in the manual or user guide that came along with the device. But the basic plan to setup will always remain the same for different devices.

1) Assign the pedals (and Gear, if available) to the PC Wheel.

2) Connect the power switch to the PC driving wheel.

3) Join your PC Wheel to a any USB port on your Computer.

4) Fix the pedals, gear, and steering wheel and place it in their correct position.

6) Finally, Switch on your computer, and connect your PC driving wheel into a power socket

Step 2: Install The Appropriate Driver

Your PC driving wheel will not work until a link is established between the hardware and the operating system. This can be done with the help of a coded program known as a Driver. All the hardware can only function properly if there is a driver that can communicate between the PC wheel and the racing game. To get the most appropriate and updated driver, you have two options:

  • Option 1 – Manual Download and Install.
  • Option 2 – Automatic Download and Install.

Option 1 – Manual Download and Install

You can always get your PC wheel working by installing the driver that came along with the device and user manual in the box. Supposedly you have purchased the Logitech Steering Wheel for PC, and then you would get a disk or a website address along with it to help you install the driver. This driver provided would be compatible and get your PC Wheel up and running, but it may not necessarily be the most updated driver.

Outdated drivers can help run hardware but do not provide enhanced performance of the device. On the other hand, updated drivers would enable the users to use the hardware to its optimal level. To update the driver manually, you can always use the Windows Device Manager or visit the Logitech Steering Wheel for PC’s official website, choose the correct model and version, download and finally install the driver.

Option 2 – Automatic Download and Install

Automatic method of updating drivers includes using a driver updated software which can scan your computer’s drivers and hardware and perform the following functions:

Update the outdated drivers.

Replace the corrupted drivers.

Install the missing drivers.

Automatic driver updater software does not require the user to enter the brand, model number, or version of the hardware installed in the computer but obtains it automatically while scanning. It also saves the user’s time and effort to manually check different websites for each driver installed in the system and find out if there is an updated version. There are many driver updater software in the software world. Still, there is one that I have been personally using for a couple of years and experienced a smooth and flawless performance of my computer.

Smart Driver Care: The all-in-one software for all your driver issues and needs. Here are the quick and simple steps to use this application:
