What I did was weld front rims to the bigger rims or put rear rims and tires on the front with a ton of grease but expect to wear out spindles

take a threaded bolt weld it to the spindle and cut head off. take some murray rear rims 8 inch and slide them on with tires and use one nut to tighten it snug but still spins and another nut to lock that nut on.,
