Hi Jord,

For my general purpose kart - I have used wheelbarrow wheels. But at high
speeds and on bad terrain - they would not be great.

For my racing kart - I use proper racing kart wheels - the wide ones with
plastic hubs.

The IDEAL thing to use - is small trailer (or caravan) wheels. These are
only 12" in diameter and have proper treads and have good sidewalls to
take the strain. These wheels are the ideal.

Best of Luck,
