    With my T500 I use for the driver settings:
    Overall 80%
    Constant 100%
    Periodic 100%
    Spring 100%
    Damper 6% (don't ask me why)

    In game:
    FFB multiplier between 0.60 and 0.70
    Min steering torque 1.5%

    In the profiler these should really be you starting settings:

    Overall 60%
    Constant 100%
    Periodic 100%
    Spring 0%
    Damper 0%
    Auto-centre - by the game

    Maybe it's a stupid question, but why do you keep 80 overall strenght if with every car you have to set the ffb multiplier between 0.60 and 0.70? I'm new on rfactor and didnt understand that much.

    The key is to set your profiler so the wheel is putting out the most 'linear' forces. This basically means the forces you feel from it will be undistorted across its entire range (so the FFB will feel good everywhere). For the T500 this is actually around 60% of its overall strength, give or take. For an explanation of linear forces see here:
    http://isiforums.net/f/showthread.php/19034-Guide-Optimal-FFB-settings-for-rFactor-2-The-key-to-being-in-the-Zone-D

    Once that is set you adjust the forces from within the game. For the Logitech wheels or for the T300 I believe you should be closer to 100% in your profiler but carry out the tests in the thread above to find out what yours should be.
