Default More Hub Confusion

Thanks to this forum I have found out the hubs I bought are metric standard.

Ive been looking through eBay at some rims and tires for my go kart project and I can't seem to find the bolt pattern anywhere. Am I missing something obvious or do I need to ask each seller what pattern the rims are?

Are all uk kart rims metric standard?

Thanks
Will

I searched ebay for Metric Go Kart Racing Wheels and this came up.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Douglas-M-S...IAAOSwFSxZ6Vv~

Searching ebay uk didn't give as many results as ebay usa.

You should probably contact any seller to verify before ordering. I assume unless the racing kart wheels say American, they probably use the standard metric pattern.

Yes, I think you should ask questions just to be sure. Same as buying any other part for your kart.

I would assume most gokart rims are metric in the UK; but I still think you should still ask, just to be absolutely sure.

Lots of British, Swiss and Italian brands of racing karts have been Imported into the USA for a long-long time; And some of the racing kart brands made in the USA have been exported all over the world for a long time too...

Some brands of racing karts made in the USA have rims with Metric bolt patterns,
and then some other brands made in the USA have rims with the US bolt patern instead.
So, It might be the same situation all over the world...

Here's a pic showing the dimensions of each type:
