Very good stand, is sturdy and doesn't rattle or anything. Only issue is the instructions are all in Chinese. With a bit of logic, it isn't too hard to figure out how to put together. Comes with built in pads to stop the metal from scratching floorboards etc.
This is a review of the single center pole wheel stand, this is classified as color: ”Adjustable”. A lot of the other reviews are for different products on the same page, such as “Black”, “Deluxe”, “G29 G27 G25”, or “G920”, so I wanted to point that out.
I bought this to mount a ThrustMaster T150 wheel/pedal combo after I had quickly discerned that a solid stand was definitely needed to enjoy the force feedback of the wheel. I was unsure from the pictures if it would be able to mount correctly with the T150’s stock underside clamp, but it works perfectly. The underside brackets of the stand don’t interfere with the T150’s mount cups, it can be repositioned along the entire stand’s mount surface without ever hitting the center bracket. On that note, if mounted dead center, it would appear that there would be adequate room to mount a shifter on either side (not sure if that’s for true, as I don’t have a shifter to verify). For the life of me I couldn’t find one of my 37 tape measures so I’ll just guestimate that the top mount plate area is 24” long by 8-9”.
If you look at the pictures you will notice a black mat of some sort underneath the stand, I thought that was part of the photo shoot, but no, it does come in the box and I would describe it as a 1.5” X 3” car floor mat with little anti-slide spikes that stick out on the bottom to keep it from moving. I don’t think I’ll use it for the stand but it may make a swell front door rug. I would guess that this is included for hardwood floors, although this wouldn’t make much sense with the anti-slip textures on the bottom, my guess is I don’t think the designing engineers were in agreement, so they went with a compromise, or I am overlooking something as always…who knows?
In regards to the parts I received: I thought I didn’t get the right bolts, but they were indeed all there, I was just to rushed and didn’t perceive the documentation correctly. Not sure if I mounted the pedals to spec, but I used 2 of the 6, S003 bolts to mount the pedals with one of the included bars being on the absolute underside of the stand and secured into the pedal hardpoint mounts, the other bar I strapped on the top of the pedal platform and used the S001 bolts and locknuts to further secure it. Not sure if that’s the correct way, but that sucker isn’t moving. I would say might want to search youtube for videos on setting up similar stands, as the stock documentation is lacking for each individual scenario based on your wheel/pedal vendor.
All in all, if you want to save 60-90 buck on this contraption vs other leading competitors, I would say go for it. I bought this because I can’t even call myself a novice at SIM racing and didn’t want to commit to more refined solutions without a cost effective demo. I hope my review helps you.
Received exactly what is advertised, a very sturdy solid frame which only took a few minutes to assemble. Definitely worth the money compared to way more expensive options. I modified a Dodge SRT4 car seat to mount directly to the frame paired with a G29 PS4 setup.I had to drill an extra hole for the G Driving Force Shifter which was no big deal. Very satisfied with the quality and how solid this frame is.

Bought this to go with my husbands "Big Gift" for Christmas. The top selling point for me was that it allowed the user to adjust to their height and it can be folded and put away with ease. The only downside was the installation instructions (there were none) but the pictures alone on Amazon's site were enough to put it together easily. I had bought my husband the ThrustMaster to attach to this and to be able to use this from the comforts of his recliner. I am more than happy to say it worked perfectly!! And also during the entire process the vendor kept in constant emails with me to make sure I was completely happy with my product. Even though I did not need any customer service they did go above and beyond to make sure I was happy with everything.
First off the instructions will have you install things upside down and backwards. Secondly the instructions don’t really give you much “instruction.” Additionally I had way to many of one type of screw and not enough of others. I still have a bag FULL of extra screws that I would be able to fill all the holes with and still have left over yet only 4 out of 6 of a vital screw.
Additionally, the “folding” still requires you to get on your hands and knees and unscrew both sides do it can fold/unfold.
Once it’s all set up though, it’s solid.
Secondly, they say you can hard mount the Thrustmaster T150 directly to it... what they mean to say is you can mount it with the clamp the T150 comes with. No hard mounting using screws.
I will start off by saying, if you are thinking this is a 1 to 1 replacement for a GT Omega stand; you would be wrong. But if you want something that is still good for casual racing on a budget; this will work. The stand is decently built, however the finish is easily scratched off by rotating and sliding the pieces. On mine the deck contained some sloppy welds that I had to use a Dremel on in order to get it to slot into where it was to go. I also had to make my own adapter bracket to get my T3PA Pro (in GT config) to mount up properly. All in all, there are a few little quality issues with the stand, but that reflects the price. The stand is stable for playing EuroTruck and Forza, but can get a little wobbly when sawing the wheel in rally games. Once I went through the setup pains though, it has been a good stand for my casual race nights.
