Buy mag rims about $160.00,
spokes are a constant problem.
Spoke came from an age of the first WW I Aircraft they had to tune it the wings all had spokes running up and down back and forth trying to turn it get the right tension may loosen the other side and then you crash.

Spokes were on bicycles long before aircraft were invented...Remember the Wright brothers???...lol...They ran a bicycle shop before making their first plane and used some of what they learned with bicycles for their plane...lol.
