Save big on a Thrustmaster T248 racing wheel at Best Buy before Black Friday

The Thrustmaster T248 Racing Wheel is on sale and discounted during Best Buy’s Black Friday sales for some pretty big savings.

With the release of Forza Motorsport and EA Sports WRC at the end of 2023, interest in sim racing is at an all-time high.

We tested a few in advance of these games’ release, including the Thrustmaster T248, and now Best Buy is offering the budget force feedback option for nearly $90 off.

Available for just $313 after the discount, the Thrustmaster T248 is one of the most affordable options for anyone looking to get into sim racing.

Why buy the Thrustmaster T248?

As we mentioned in our review, there are a few reasons why you should pick up the Thrustmaster as your first entry into the world of sim racing.

First is Thrustmaster’s hybrid drive setup. Instead of drive being solely via gears or a belt, the company has incorporated a hybrid of both options into the T248. This gave the steering wheel a pretty unique feel with its force feedback.

Additionally, numerous settings are available via the steering wheel’s screen, including various force feedback and connectivity options, allowing users to customize the steering wheel exactly how they prefer in each game.

The same screen can also act as a kind of head-up display during gameplay, showing you information about speed, RPM and even gear. That is, assuming the game you’re playing supports it.

We also like the fact that the Thrustmaster wheels don’t come with extensive software that you have to keep running in the background of your PC.

However, many sim racers still choose to keep a mouse and keyboard handy for general navigation outside of the game. If you’re looking for a new device yourself, Best Buy also has the Razer Basilisk on sale.
