Logitech G25 or G27. It's what most of us use.

I use the Driving Force...its the Logitech wheel designed for Gran Turismo on PS3, but works great for iRacing...like $125 out the door when I bought it a year ago.

I use a 10+ year old Microsoft SideWinder wheel. Creature of habit I guess!
I'd try a g27 though, you can even adapt a real racing wheel to it if you're feeling ambitious.

Ive been sim racin for over 10 years now. If you want it to be like a simulation and not like a video game then spend a little $ and get a good wheel. I have been using the same Logitech G-25 for over 4 years and it is great. About $250 but it is well worth it if you really plan on racing. Make sure you get a good up to date computer so you can run the game smooth. Also you need to have a good DSL or better internet connection.

It is alot of fun and can really help you learn stuff for the real car. If you have any questions about it or need any help getting going or on the track when you get started let me know.
