This custom “Wiiata” probably isn’t the safest thing to drive around in. A TikTok user has modder their car so that uses a Wii steering wheel attachment as the car’s actual steering wheel. Important disclaimer on this one: don’t replace your steering wheel with a Wii steering wheel accessory. Last month, TikTok user Tyler Atkin, known as Ttptng, posted a video showing them modding a Wii steering wheel accessory, replacing the actual wheel of their car with it.
