    Hidy guys,
    I found an old Radio Flyer by my neighbors trash can last Tuesday and brought it up to the shop.
    I’m gonna lower it with some stainless tubing and some either spoked or smoothie style wheels.

    My problem is that I have no clue where to find wheels. I’ve typed in every keyword i can imagine and haven’t had a lick of luck.

    I’ve read several threads and articles and scoured the internet but cant find what im looking for.

    Does anybody have any advise on where to look for this style wheel? Probably a 7-10” btw

    Thanks guys

    I immediately thought of something like a Honda 50cc atv. Then I remembered seeing this
    wagon on Craigslist. I had hoped the wheels would have shown up better in the pic.

    I actually had tht idea. Insteada going with a dual in the rear i may do a slick fat one like that. I kinda like how deep they are

    Go cart/racing cart wheels seem to be pretty popular. You can also look at pedal cars, hand trucks, wheel barrows, and small lawn & garden types

    My wife and I have been collecting vintage wagons for about 30 years. We now only look for art deco style wagons. Here are a couple of wagons from our collection.
