Big wheel conversion

Hi all

My SK used to have the Jabiru Big Foot conversion however many moons ago the main wheels were returned to standard 4" rims. The nosewheel is still the heavy duty leg and larger wheel from the Big Foot set up.

My question is - does anyone out there know whether there is a fairly easy way of fitting larger main wheels? I don't use spats.

Can I just fit some larger split rims? , do I need longer stub axles? What else?

All ideas welcomed

The supplier is :

Redstone tyres
South Yard
West Sussex BN18 ODF
01243558959 ... y--11.html

The wheels are 3.25-6 2 pce Wheel 3.75" HL (0631141407)
Each two piece wheel is GBP15

They stock other wheels but their online catologe is not working. A hard copy catalogue should be available at your local tyre fitters. Mine let me take it
away to study.
