Yah the center hub that holds the bearings is pressed in place not welded. So any real amount of side force like turning, could snap it off.

I welded mine together, purchased good bearings...and after 15minutes of fun I replaced the tires with Walmart tractor tires. $15 each. No problems with them so far. But Iíve only put a couple good hours on them. Need to find a good place to ride.

Stupid kalifornia gokart laws...

Anyways, be safe out there.

My daughters kart had those on the front & I'm using them on the twin karts which will only do around 15mph around the yard; any faster than that & I'd be spending a lot more...

No, the point will never be made. If you do a forum search, the same topic comes up a sextillion times.

They are not go kart tires/wheels and there's not a product description anywhere saying they are. It could conceivably be a confusion with Northern Tool & Equipment which is HF's closest competitor whom actually sells bona fide go kart wheels...

Maybe this was a thread designed to troll the forum?

Nice hijack.

Those are not HF tires. If they were, I'd say SURE, GO AHEAD

I'd make your own thread, because this one is for the obvious purposes of satire.
