Coming in 2020 - The Return of the Star Wire® by Truespoke®
Cragar® Star Wire® Wheels by Truespoke®
Truespoke® Wire Wheels (America's favorite wire wheels since 1974), will be bringing back the Star Wire® 30-spoke wire wheel. The continuation Star Wire® wheel will be a fully licensed product by Cragar®, built to our high standards. The wheels are expected to be ready for sale by the Summer of 2020. We can't be more specific than that at this time. We do not want to bring this wheel back to the market until we know it is safe and of show quality.
Rear wheel drive only. We will not make any front wheel drive wheels.
The wheel sizes offered will be 14 and 15 inches in our phase one. Standard and reverse styles will be available. We cannot announce prices yet because we are not in production and it is premature to estimate. By the summer of 2020, we expect to be able to release pricing information.
We are NOT taking orders or deposits at this time. When we have production available, we will contact all of the folks on our email list to notify you about all the details.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
We know you will love the Star Wire® wheel, AGAIN.
UPDATE: Production of our Cragar® Star Wire® Wheel has been interrupted and suspended. Another wire wheel company is accusing Truespoke® and Cragar® of infringing upon their Trademark and have alleged that only they have the right to make the 30-Spoke Star Wire® Wheels. Truespoke® and Cragar® deny that there has been any infringement and that the other wire wheel company has infringed upon their rights. The matter is in the hands of the attorneys for each party and unless a settlement is reached, the case will be headed for a trial. Until a decision is reached through negotiations or a decision by the Court, our progress has been halted.
For those following our progress on the new Star Wire® Wheel, we offer this video, showing a
pre-production prototype being tested for fitment here in California. The center section of the wheel will be constructed much differently than the former WELD RACING type design. The spokes will not be held together with bolts and glue. The center hub section will be one-piece and all of the spokes will be welded together with the hub and inner-rim (also known as the "felly channel").
The new and improved wheel design will be much stronger than earlier models. As of December, 2019, the new Star Wire® Wheel has completed its safety-testing with a load capacity of 1,500 pounds.
We will release more details as the development of this beloved wheel progresses. Although we are using modern construction and engineering techniques, the wheel will be identical to the original, trademarked and patented design.
We are NOT taking orders or deposits at this time. If you wish to be on our mailing list and notified of any developments, simply add your name and email address to the email list below.
Thank you for all the encouragement and support we have received from our devoted fans, as we progress. The last Star Wire® wheels were sold up until 2010 by Cragar® Wheels. The Star Wire® trademarks and designs are licensed exclusively to Truespoke® Wire Wheels.
