I dont have wheels or hubs to sell - all I have is whats on my own kart.

If your looking for proper racing kart wheels - then get to a racing
kart track etc. and they would have old perhaps slightly damaged
wheels they could sell/ give to you. It doesnt matter greatly that the
tires may be threadbare - as long as you get the kart made and do some
small testing - then you can buy new tires.

Apart from getting really old and used wheels from a karting arena,
you could use wheelbarrow wheels. What about wheels off a small
trailer? - or a small compact caravan?

I never buy wheels! - I always keep looking and asking people.

P.S. this isn;t a hurdle - this is a lack of work and insight on your part.

Best of Luck
