I am looking to get a new wheel stand and would like to get some suggestions/feedback on what you guys think is a good one? I have the TX wheel with the TP3A pro pedals on a homemade stand that does the job but looking for something a little more sturdy/adjustable. I just want the wheel stand at this point but maybe one that can have the seat added later, I am really considering the grandstand wheel stand but I am not sure how good it is, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I've got one of these and really cannot speak highly enough of it. It's worth the extra shekels to get the deluxe model, the cheaper ones feel exactly that.

Although look around, I only paid 50 for mine from Amazon. Prices do vary...

Another vote for the Wheel Stand Pro.

Check out the GT Omega stand. You also have the option to add a seat later if funds are tight. It's a good quality sturdy stand.

Afterthought... I had actually thought I may need a seat, until I tried the wheel stand pro with something strikingly similar to this:

I was incredibly surprised how relaxed and comfortable a race position it is with the wheel stand pro, largely down to it's totally adjustable frame. Plus you can pick one up for around 50... I wont be play seating any time soon at that price.

You should say where you are from because shipping over seas makes a big difference . I'm in the states and bought a Dx-racer wheel stand because its the same as the GT Omega with out the shipping cost

^^^ that the seat i use with my wheelstand also and watch TV

Damn comfy, eh?

I've had mine for years, it must be a good 15+ years old now. Still just as comfy but now it has a dual purpose :)

Now you're just showing off ;)

In fairness I don't use it really unless as a race seat. My couch is a much nicer place to be when I'm not hurling round a track. lol.

I almost went with the GT Omega but like you I am in the states and did not want to deal with the shipping.
