gcam333:
I am making an American Wheat Hybrid this weekend. OG should be 1.055. Is there any need to make a starter at this OG?
Thanks,
Gcam

There's never a "need" to make a starter. Whether it will make better beer is a matter of personal preference. I would say yes. It can also help to cover for other potential process problems (contamination, high temperature, lack of oxygen).

If you're willing to wade through it: Yeast Pitching Rate Results

Thanks for the explanation. I had assumed from reading that it was primarily based on OG.  I actally enjoy making a starter. Now it sounds like I can make one on most every batch.
Thanks again,
Gcam
