Sim racing wheels consist of a wheel rim, a set of buttons or paddle shifters, and a force feedback mechanism. The wheel rim is the part of the wheel that the user grips and turns to control the virtual vehicle. It is usually designed to resemble a racing wheel with a circular shape, often made of high-quality materials such as leather or synthetic materials to provide a comfortable and authentic grip.

The buttons and paddle shifters on the wheel rim allow the user to access in-game functions, such as changing gears or adjusting settings without needing to reach for the keyboard or gamepad. These buttons and paddles can be programmable, allowing users to customize their functions to suit their preferences.

High-end sim racing wheels are precision-engineered devices designed to provide an immersive and realistic racing experience.
