Solid vs Spoke front wheels on a rear-engine dragster?

Does it really matter or are there any pros/cons to using spoke wheels on the front of a rear engine dragster? thanks

I don't think it would really matter as long as they break the beams, it would be a matter of preference, I have seen many with both types.

Makes no difference. Solid wheels are probably more rigid and can stand 350mph better than spokers but spokers look better on slower vintage cars.
