    I don't believe the Speed wheel has a driver yet for the PC.  At least it is not on the Microsoft Hardware download site yet.

    Also, even if it does, you must have the Xbox Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows to use it (just like the Wirless Xbox Controllers).

    I've used it fine with F1 2010.  Dirt 3 treated it like an Xbox 360 controller though.  I have not tried any other games with it yet.

    What did you use for a receiver?

    I use a original Xbox Wireless Gaming Receiver for PC but it not work perfectly in games. Yes its work but you have to turn very much on the steering wheel for it to produce a reading and it is a hassle in the long run. I don't recommend it on PC in any game.

    I too have used this on PC with the Wireless receiver and played burnout paradise just fine.  I'm using it with windows 8., however unlike the xbox controller it knows its an xobx device but treats it as a generic game controller and doesn't identify it as a speed wheel

    I concur.  Works just dandy with Burnout Paradise on PC.  Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012) on PC however does not support a wheel.

    My wireless receiver didn't recognize the Speed wheel.

    I installed the latest driver on my windows 7 64bit.

    help me please :(

    Remember, it usually comes down to the games itself supporting the hardware.

    I can confirm that the 360 Wireless Speed Wheel is recognized with the Microsoft supplied drivers for the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter for Windows.

    I can confirm that the 360 Wireless Speed Wheel is recognized with the Microsoft supplied drivers for the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter for Windows. HeartlessMouse3 commented that Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012 does not support the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel. This is true -*however*- it CAN be fixed! Here's how! You'll need a utility called X360CE and you're going to need it's config file (ini file) as well as it's xinput .dll linked library file. After you extract the X360CE.zip file, turn on your wheel and open X360CE.exe and it will ask if you want to generate a configuration file. You select Yes. Then close X360CE and open the newly created X360CE.ini file in Notepad. (In the same directory as X360CE.exe)... In the area that says "Deadzone" set that to 1 and on the line that says "Linearity", set that to 0... Now save that file. Put both the x360ce.ini file and the file called xinput1_3.dll into the same directory as NFSMW.exe, (probably in Program Files(x86)), and when you run Need for Speed: Most Wanted, it will recognize that dll file you put in there, and use the settings from the ini file when you start the game. Feel free to change those ini settings to setup your Xbox 360 Racing Wheel to whatever feels right to play Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012).
