Product Description

Description

Thrustmaster T248​

Compatible with PS5, PS4 and PC

Designed for all gamers looking for performance and immersion and wanting to free themselves from their keyboard, mouse or gamepad, or improve their skills after starting out with a beginner’s wheel, T248 is a racing wheel officially licensed for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and compatible with PC.

  • Premium design with leather wrapping on the outer-facing portion of the wheel
  • Up to 25 action buttons including 2 dual-position encoders
  • Interactive race dashboard with more than 20 different displays on the wheel’s screen
  • On-the-fly Force Feedback level adjustment: 3 Force Feedback curves (presets included)
  • Next-gen HYBRID DRIVE system: 70% more power than other Thrustmaster hybrid racing wheels (T150 series)
  • Super-responsive magnetic paddle shifters
  • Magnetic pedal set with 4 spring configurations for the brake pedal

Real-time information onscreen

T248 offers different displays for real-time racing information: speed, RPM, race position, best lap time, and much more.

The list of compatible games is available on the Thrustmaster technical website, and regularly updated.

THRUSTMASTER RACE DASHBOARD DISPLAY

T248 features a selection of more than 20 different displays on its built-in screen: manual adjustment of a range of settings (selection of Force Feedback type, the wheel’s rotation angle, etc.), or the user’s choice of telemetry information (gear ratio, RPM, gamer’s best lap time, etc.).

DYNAMIC FORCE FEEDBACK

T248 features 3 types of Force Feedback (presets included), compatible with all games and modifiable on the fly directly on the wheel:

FFB 1: Force Feedback 100% proportional to the force requested by the game.

FFB 2: enhanced Force Feedback, for better skid control.

FFB 3: boosted Force Feedback, allowing users to clearly feel all racing effects from the track (curbs, skidding off-track, etc.).

NEXT-GEN HYBRID DRIVE SYSTEM

Providing gamers with extra power (up to 70% more than the previous Thrustmaster hybrid racing wheel, T150), T248 dominates racetracks thanks to its intensity.

The outstanding drivability made possible by this hybrid system avoids counterintuitive sensations and friction problems commonly found in racing wheels without a belt drive component.

25 ACTION BUTTONS

Including 2 dual-position encoders (up and down) located on the ends of the wheel’s central spokes, T248 features nearly twice as many action buttons as previous Thrustmaster racing wheels (T150 series).

This extensive range of physical and virtual buttons allows users to always have plenty of choices when it comes to assigning racing controls, in any type of game.

MAGNETIC PADDLE SHIFTERS

Thanks to H.E.A.R.T magnetic technology, T248’s paddle shifters allow for super-fast gear shifting, with clear and precise activation feel (30 ms response time) to avoid driving errors.

This proprietary technology, based on a contactless system of magnets without any friction, also allows for an unprecedented product lifespan over the long term — even with the most intense gaming sessions.

MAGNETIC PEDAL SET

Providing truly exceptional, thousandth-of-a-second precision, the T3PM magnetic pedal set also allows for 4 pressure modes on the brake pedal.

With completely smooth motion and avoiding the loss of precision over time experienced by standard potentiometer-based pedal sets, T3PM represents a huge, striking leap forward both in terms of versatility and in-game responsiveness
