    The best advice is to follow an existing project, perhaps refining things as you go, that way you have a better idea of the hardware needed, the software and potential challenges.

    Here are just some of the existing wheel projects, there are more in the member threads: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steering-wheels.65/

    I built the Cousin of OSW and am very happy with it. I used a 1000w my1020 motor. Having a 3d printer for this project helped a lot though.
