    I appreciate the recommendation verification.

    I noticed some smaller wheels I purchased earlier tend to leak slowly. I thought it was because the ones I purchased were Harbor Freight specials, but now it appears to be a standard issue. Guess I'll have to keep them aired-up periodically.

    The websites for the above shops are:

Search pocket bikes on ebay and the net. the stuff is everywhere.

    Good idea. I hadn't considered those before. Some of those rims are NICE!

    Thanks for the responses!

    I appreciate the responses and wealth of information provided.

    PaulRBrown -
    I'll take a look at Williams Racing products. They seem to know their stuff.

    ZTFab -
    That BarStoolRacers site openned up a whole new area to me. What a cool idea. Their discussion area has some good leads on rims and tires.

    Welder13 -
    Indeed, the prices are a bit steep for a welding cart. I'll take a look on eBay to see if anyone has some used rims or tires.

    50BMGShooter -
    Thanks for the link to HodgeRacing. Nice website and online catalog.

    TS-Off-Road -
    Douglas Wheel does make some NICE rims. I'll have to check out those shops you suggested when I'm in that area. I appreciate the extra effort to provide the addresses and phone numbers. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Dave-

    I've found some on EBay before for decent deals.

    Especially for what you want to use them for, look there and you might find a racer selling last season tires for a good price since they will be too worn for the track but perfect for wagons and carts.

    If you want new try looking on BarFlyRacers.com, they might have some resources for them over there.

    started a topic Go Kart aluminum rims source?

    Go Kart aluminum rims source?

    I LOVE the rims on the Power Click contest entry "TIG Welding cart" by C. Piester.

    I'm in the process of designing a welding cart. I was going to use some Harbor Freight wheels, but aluminum rims would look much better. They look like small diameter rims, 3 to 4 inch or so. I know some of you folks build high-end go karts, so if you would kindly share your source for rims and tires, I would GREATLY appreciate it.
