What's required for a steering wheel?

Hello, I've got a Razor Pro that has three USB ports so they're all taken with the headset and sensors with the Rift.

I've never seen how a wheel is attached so how does that work?

Do I need to add more USB ports to my PC to accommodate what I would assume to be more USB's?

I'd like to get the wheel, shifter, and pedals.

Thanks for any help on this topic!

    If you don't have enough usb ports, you'll need to get a usb hub (a powered one is probably less likely to cause problems) to extend the number.

    Yup, they connect via USB so you'll need to get a hub or PCI-E expansion card.

    Yes a powered hub will work great , I have been using a CyberPower USB 2.0 powered hub for several years with great success. As kojak mentioned, be sure to get a powered one with it's own electrical plug.

    I have a Thrustmaster T150 Pro - needs a single USB to connect to.

    Is there no USBs on the front of your PC case or anything that you could connect to?

    He's got a Razer Pro. That's a laptop.

    Although it does have a usb-c port, you could use an adapter to hook a wheel up.
