white spokes on the tire coming from the wheel. is this dangerous?

Asked by Aug 15, 2013 at 08:08 PM about the 1999 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a tire that was low on air (had been sitting for a few weeks and was at 23 psi). i filled it up (32 psi) and went for a drive. then i noticed that there are white spokes on the tire coming from the wheel.
they are evenly spaced like a bicycle.
the wheels were dirty (white mud type) before the drive, now they are generally clean.
is this dangerous?
these are not the kind of wheels (blue chrome) i would like to have a blowout in, and far from a tire shop to get it looked at.

White spokes? Are you saying the dirt from the wheels has been thrown onto the side of the tires in streaks while driving? If so your fine.

kind of hard to explain. could the white lines be spewing from the wheel joins of the tire?
