If you like to feel as if you're behind the wheel of the car and want your friends to join in with the experience whilst playing Mario Kart or any of the other numerous racing game titles you can pick up for the Wii, then why not grab three steering wheels to mount your Wii-motes in.
Amazon are parting with Competition Pro steering wheel triple packs for £6.01, which isn't bad considering the next best offer for three Wii wheels seems to be £11.97 from Game, so you'll be making a saving of almost £6.

When it comes to racing games on the Wii, I'm not a fan of the steering wheel peripheral because I just don't think it gives you the same control over your vehicle as you get from the nunchuck's thumbstick. The big problem is getting the hang of the motion controls and avoiding angrily waving the wheel around, resulting in your car crashing into a barrier as the other racers whizz past you.
Competition Pro's wheels come with the added bonus of being fairly well made, which means that you won't have to worry too much about breaking them and rushing out to find a replacement due to a rage induced incident.
If you decide you want to give them a go, then you'll be sacrificing control for a bit of gimmicky fun that'll disappear very quickly, but then again for £6.01 it's probably worth a punt.
