An equivalent to those wheels in the link below might be off a small 
scooter/moped. The spoked wheels off a moped would be metal however and 
would weigh a good bit more.
You could also look to taking the wheels of a pedal kart. E.g: 
It could cost a bit however. On some of my earlier karts, I used the 
spoked pnuematic wheels of small children's bycycles. These worked 
reasonable, however would not take hard cornering or too much weight.

Best of luck,
