Truespoke® Wire Wheels Celebrates Its 48th Birthday

Updated: Jul 19, 2022

It won't be all that long before Truespoke® hits the ripe old age of 50! After all these years in operation, demand keeps increasing for our chrome wire wheels. Staying true to the time-honored designs, first patented in 1974, Truespoke® wire wheels strives to improve the quality of our chrome wire wheels, without disturbing our unique styles.

Today, we often serve the grandchildren of original Truespoke® customers, who have always aspired to own their own set of wheels, such as our Truespoke® 45 or 50 spoke models or the Trueray® or Trueclassic® styles.

At this point in time, our production of wheels is not keeping up with the demand. What used to be available on our shelves, is now being produced over a period of months. It is a challenge to find true craftsmen or people willing to learn the necessary skills to be able to build our wire wheels. We seek people that have a passion for making things with their hands. We hope you will understand these challenges. The waiting will be worth it.

Since our last post, we have received many photos submitted by satisfied customers. We would like to share a few of these photos with our followers. We maintain a "Customer's Car Show" page on our website that features hundreds of cars, fitted with our wheels. This is a list of some of the pages found on our website:

The Truespoke® 50 Spoke Wire Wheel is the only style we build that has visible lug nuts. All of our other styles have a hubcap that conceals the lug nuts. This design is unique, recognized and respected throughout the car culture community.

Vintage Full Line Truespoke® Ad from 1974

This early ad featured our full line of Truespoke® brand wire wheels. Each style was patented and trademarked. The prices have increased to be sure, since then, however, the craftsmanship and engineering have also been greatly improved. Today, Truespoke® wire wheels are America's favorite, direct bolt-on, chrome wire wheels.

This wheel is not currently in production.

We are offering accessories for the wheel including the 3-Blade spinners that we were able to source, along with the Cragar® center cap, lug nuts and washers. To view our Star Wire®

line of accessories, please click here.

Please join our mailing list for notification of any news or developments. We will send out email notification as any developments occur.

Consumers Beware!

There are all too many bad actors trying to palm-off their fake, foreign-built Truespoke® replicas. We have seen these counterfeit Trueray®, Trueclassic® and Truespoke® Wire Wheels. The quality of these phony rims is about as bad as you can get. Sadly, a lot of good people have been hood-winked into buying these pieces of junk.

The fake wheels we have seen also present themselves as safety hazards. The bogus rims are typically sold in parking lots, swap meets, online or elsewhere without any warranty or receipts. The people who are making these fake wheels are committing a Federal offense called counterfeiting.

Don't find yourself falling into a trap by purchasing these trash rims. You are wasting your money if you do and possibly putting life and limb in jeopardy.

We prepared this video as a comparison between the fakes and the real thing. Please click here to see our video on how to tell a fake, counterfeit Truespoke® from the real thing.

Truespoke® has no dealers. You are purchasing factory-direct. If anybody says they are a dealer, please report them to us for prosecution.

Thank you for being True to Truespoke® since 1974. We look forward to serving you.
