5/8" bore wheels with no bearings

Submitted by mattcasey123 on Sun, 19/04/2020 - 22:45

G'day everyone,

I'm making a go kart project at home and I haven't done one before. I'm after a set of two wheels (for the rear) that will slide onto the rear axle, but because I'm using the rear axle to power the wheels I can't have any bearings in the wheels. 


Does anyone know where I can buy some wheels (basically small wheelbarrow wheels) without bearings in them (Bunnings etc)? I'm not looking to spend too much (under $75 would be good).


Thanks :)

Starting out

Hi - I want to start in Go Karting this year, at the club at Todd Road. I think I will go TAG 125 restricted, and buy a new Arrow Kart. I hear these are most common, but I am struggling to get information on almost everything to do with karting. I have made a budget for both purchase of gear, plus ongoing maintenance/running costs. Quite a few things I am googling, or have completely made up. From a cost perspective, and any other advice, how is this looking? I want to compete at a club level for now.
