Hello Friends. I’m looking to restore a Manco 400 for my grandkids as my own kids had one when they were little. Back wheels are AOK, fronts are wrong. Anybody have a pair they’ll part with or even shove me in the right direction.
Thanks!

Hey Denny. I found a guy with literally 1000’s of vintage go Kart wheels including Manco’s. I’ll let you know how I make out. He’s been really reasonable with everything I’ve bought from him before.

Hey Tricky, what are those front wheels? They look like vintage nylon/plastic racing rims. I think some were called Nylite.

Azusa makes some called Azusalites, but they're probably a bit higher tech:

"Zytel® is a series of nylon resins by DuPont Corporation. Azusalite Wheels are molded from a glass-reinforced, alpha crystalline, Nylon 6 resin designed to provide an optimal combination of tensile, impact and flexural strengths. The resulting Azusalite wheels are strong, resilient and durable."

I had skyway tuff II's on the front of my Hutch back in 83/84 or so, got tired of killing Araya 7x? When entering back into 1/4 pipes.....I know off topic but great memories, I got used to Dr's and ER rooms at an early age 🤪 :cool::thumbsup::popcorn:

haha if only. Na. They were just some hand truck wheels with fake rubber china tires. Couldn’t put a bearing in them if I had a really big hammer.
