Cragar Street Stars, Centerline Telstars or, Weld Prostar rims? They all look pretty much the same to me. I have not seen any up close and cannot tell what differences they may have. Can anybody help me out?

The street stars are a steel wheel...I think.I have the weld Prostar ...I know cragar makes an aluminum version.And I think weld is owned by Cragar or vice versa.

Or I may be wrong...But I do own the weld Prostars.


Not much help huh.

The Pro Stars are lighter than the others for racing. I had a set on my Beretta and they were stamped Not for Street use. I bought another pair used and they were stamped Street Legal. The set on my present Nova are stamped Not for Street use. I'd say based on those stampings that they either have or in the past had two different wheels. So if you just want the look and don't care about weight go with the cheapest one. JMHO, RM

Greetings,

Just keep in mind with the lighter, aluminum wheel, less unsprung weight! I'd go with the Prostars myself. The Telstars don't look bad at all, but I'd go with the Prostars.
