    Typical full size kart will use 10 x 4.5 x 5 tires in the front and 11 x 7,1 x 5 in the rear on 130mm wide front wheels, and 210 mm rear wheels.

    Check the rule book for the class and tracks you intend to race on.

    You need to provide way more information; so far you’ve only told us it is a “go kart,” which is sort of like saying you have a “car” and want us to tell you, based solely on that word, what the tire size should be.  This forum is mainly used by people who run modern European-spec competition road racing karts.  If you have a US spec oval kart or an off-road kart, the answer will be different.
