    Ok, let's be honest, do you NEED these wheels? No. Will you have fun playing with them? Absolutely! I purchased these so that my kids (4 and 3) could play Mario Kart 8 without feeling overwhelmed. The game features options for auto acceleration, tilt steering, and smart steering (keeps the player from driving completely off the track). With all of these options turned on and the joy-cons snapped into their wheels, anyone can feel like they're a veteran Mario Kart player. As someone who's been a gamer since the original NES of the 80's, it's so much fun to watch my kids enjoy themselves while playing a game that without these wheels and options be completely over their heads. I highly recommend purchasing these wheels.

    Works for what it is

    I haven't used the Nintendo wheels, but these seem to work perfectly fine for Mario Kart. I had no trouble fitting in the joycons into to wheels or taking them out, and the triggers work perfectly. The triggers have a decent amount of travel, but they really register the click with very little travel. My kids love the colors and think it's more fun than just using the joy cons alone. These are small as others have noted, but that's the standard for these wheels. I'm only taking off a star because it's really just a piece of plastic, and there is no cutout to show the controller light indicators. You can still sort of see them if you look at the gap between the wheel and the joy con, but other wheels seem to have a cutout for them.

    Works well, just pricey for what it is.

    The controllers fit perfectly and they perform as expected - just giving you a more comfortable/familiar grip on things when playing multiplayer racing games on a single switch console. Would have given it five stars if it weren't for the price. It's just pretty expensive for what are basically two plastic doughnuts. Their dock is ridiculously priced, the replacement controllers, ac adapters, gaming controller - everything that's sold as an accessory from nintendo for the switch is just overpriced for what you get. Bottom line. I'd actually buy more of them if the price was more reasonable just to duplicate our setup on multiple tvs in different rooms - if it just didn't cost so much.

    I purchased these because they were $5 less than the official ones from Nintendo. I also have the official Nintendo ones but I chose to use these instead because they came in red and blue whereas the official ones were both black and I have gray Joy Cons. Comparing the two sets, the official ones look like it was better made and I was a bit concerned. However, I used these during races and they were great! They L/R buttons worked perfectly--something I was concerned about when I first look at them. Now I use these exclusively due to the colors. When I get other color joy cons, I will take out my Nintendo ones to use.

    I don’t know how these compare to the official ones, but these are good quality steering wheels, at first you think you might use this as a stinger and we’l I don’t know how these compare to the official ones, but these are good quality steering wheels, he’s are more useful as reps and they are actual steering wheels, because Mario kart is more responsive if you play with the analog stick instead of turning these to turn in the game, with that being said there’s two trigger button behind the wheels that you can’t seeing these pictures,

    I really enjoy using these when playing mario kart. I am glad I bought this cheaper option since its just a tiny piece of plastic much smaller than the Wii wheel. The joy con is also much smaller so I guess it makes sense and it feels good in my hands. The box for this wheel set was the same size as the box for the authentic Nintendo ones so I believe they are the same size. I haven't tried the authentic Nintendo wheels but my advice would be to get a set of wheels but make sure they are on sale and as cheap as possible.

    Feels like a whole new way to play Mario Kart

    I'll start by saying the Joy-Cons fit very well in these steering wheels. That being said, using these with the controller buttons just doesn't feel right. We ended up using them with the auto acceleration to rely on buttons as little as possible. They are fun for a new challenge playing with friends, but neither me or my 4 year old prefer them over just the Joy-Cons so they stay in a drawer most of the time. I'd recommend them only if you have gotten bored of Mario Kart and are interested in a new way to play it.

    I wasn't going to buy joy con wheels but they were the right price. I brought them home and played about 50 hours of game play with each wheel before the buttons on the bottom of the wheel became inoperable; making the game play impossible to play while the joy con was inserted in the wheel. I am still giving these three stars because I might have been too rough on the buttons. I am sure they would last longer if played with kid gloves on. I would buy them again if I thought they really improved my game play, but they are more of a novelty than necessity.
