Hi Howard,

Yes - it can be difficult to get good wheels for a kart. You could use 
small spoked wheels from a childs bicycle, however you would need two 
small bicycle. These wheels, if you can get them, are idea as they are 
pneumatic and will make for a smoother ride. You could also to a search on 
ebay to see if someone in your area has suitable wheels for sale.

That would be very useful if you could send on photos of the wooden kart. 
It was quite a while ago when I made wooden karts and I never took any 
photos of them! Photos are very useful as they give people an excellent 
idea of the practical build and final outcome of a cart.

Best of Luck,
