For all those who are looking for high performance but at less than half the cost of go-kart wheels, then this could be your answer. Many trikers start with barrow wheels and sleeves. The barrow bearings are utter rubbish and wear out in a day. So you can buy £1 motor bike bearings and add these for starters and then if you have a welder, you can weld the press fit barrow wheels. At about £30 a pair plus tyres for go-kart and only £10 for wheels and tyres, its a third the price. I’ve run both for a year and a half and the performance is the same. Side impact like kurbs are always problem for any wheel but at £5 each for a barrow wheel you can’t go wrong.
