Default preffered yard kart split rims?

Hey everyone, I'm looking to re-do my nephews little kart (think its a manco) that has a couple bent wheels we want to just flatout replace all 4 wheels on.

While looking, I've seen some "regular" split wheels that require an additional hub to attach to rear axle and float on front spindles.

I've also seen some Azusa split wheels that have bearings IN the front wheels (which I guess will also require spacers on the spindle since there is no hub, and Azusa split rear wheels that are keyed for the rear axle without a hub.

Which style kart split rims do you all prefer? Regular split rims plus hubs, or the Azusa split rims that don't require a hub?

Thanks for your opinions!

Noone has any opinions on split rims plus hubs vs split wheels that have bearings/keyway in them?

Depends entirely on 2 things with me:

1) Aesthetics,
2) Amount of coin in my pocket.
