Hello! I’m new here! I just started getting into yard karts 2 months ago. A friend gave me his disassembled and I put it together and got it working. I joined here because on my second kart, I can not figure out what tires to put on the front. It’s not 5/8. It’s a hair bigger. The rear axle is also a 58mm bolt pattern. It’s as if this kart was designed only to have race kart tires. I’ll post tonight with some measurements. Anyway, nice to meet all of you!

Ha! Thank you! There’s more coming. I have some custom vinyl decals coming. I just can’t figure out these front wheels. It’s driving me nuts. This is my first yard kart. It’s Gordon Freeman, HL2, Black Mesa themed.1C80F464-1AE9-42E2-948C-0B988B6EF739.jpeg233150D9-EEBA-41BE-AF48-0CBC8DD94758.jpeg

and btw i did some thinking and if you just brought your wheel into napa or whatever is near you and ask for a bearing that fits it and give the axel measurement

I’ll have to Google the nearest one. I believe it’s a floater wheel? I wish I could put big ATV wheels on the rear and some 14 x 5.5-6 cleat tires on the front but I think I’m limited by the width of the front axle and I’m limited by the 3 lug 58mm bolt pattern in the rear.

You could always change the front setup and put some new spindles on it or new hubs as suggested before. It just comes down to how much time/money you want to spend on it vs how much time/money you want to spend on trying to find something that'll fit what you got now.
