    I have to purchase new rear wheels for a kart running junior 2 cycle. We are mandated to run the 450 rear tire size. The 5″ Douglas metric aluminums come in 5.125″ and 5.5″ widths. Which width should I get?

    I am visiting the site now and I have to purchase new rear wheels for a kart running junior 2 cycle. We are mandated to run the 450 rear tire size. The 5″ Douglas metric aluminums come in 5.125″ and 5.5″ widths. Which width should I get?

     

    Did you get the 5.125″ ?  Did they work well for you?

    The thinner wheel will give you less rolling resistance.
