We've spent hours looking over the best steering wheels on the market. Some of the biggest things we consider are price, convenience, and special features. We're always interested in new Switch games and accessories, so we'll keep an eye out for any new steering wheel controllers to add to this list.

For intense Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fans, we recommend the Mario Kart Racing Wheel Pro Mini. The steering wheel is larger than many others out there, and it comes with foot pedals for a more immersive racing experience. Or, if you want to take it a step further, you could get the Mario Kart Racing Wheel Pro Deluxe for better grip, button placement, and stability with suction cups.

If that's a little too expensive, you should consider the Mario and Luigi controllers. If you plan on playing with a decent group of people, we recommend the Orzly Four-Pack so multiple people can play at once. Whatever you go with, these steering wheels should provide a big improvement over the standard Joy-Cons.
