Weld Wheels, created the Starwires 50s and 30s Spokes in the mid 1970s.

Then, Cragar bought the Patent from Weld Wheels and continued creating the Starwires along with the , "84s" and "83s" mainly from 30s and specifically for the Front Wheel Drive 1984 and 83' Cadillac Eldorados. Which the 84s "poke out" further from the wheel wells, than the 83s.

Then, later, in mid 2000s, Texan Wire Wheels bought the Patent from Cragar, and continued the Starwires.

Also, I heard TrueSpoke is going to going to continue creating the Starwires .
Starwires, are wire spoke rims that has amounts of 30s and 50s . "30s" and "50s" , denounce the amount of wires in the rims.

Weld Wheel is the first company to create them, which later companies such as Cragar and Texan Wire Wheels continued creating them.

TrueSpoke may continue creating them.

Also, look on facebook of the Club Page, that is specifically about these rims call "Cragar Starwire Wheels 30&50 Spokes..."

Plus, check out the film of 1988 call "Colors". In the film, which the film was made and is based in Los Angeles, California by the way, has a early 1980s Cadillac Eldorado that has the Starwire 30s spoke wire wheels all around .
