Is this game too "twitch"-based to use a racing wheel?

Some games, like GT5/Forza 3, are vastly improved when played with a wheel. Other games, like Burnout Paradise, don't work so well with a wheel because of the speed of the game. I know Hot Pursuit is a lot like Burnout but its car handling is still more realistic than Burnout.. has anyone tried it with a wheel? Is it better or worse than with a controller?

I was on a forum talking about the time trials in that game and it seemed a reasonable number of people were using wheels and having at least average or above success.

Hmm, I should dig mine out of storage (where it's been since Forza Motorsport 2) and give it a whirl.

I can't get used to the Xbox wheel; I played it at a friend's, but the lack of corrective force feedback really killed the experience.
