Need new Rims for obscure IH Field Cultivator

I picked up a new toy to work on.
https://photos.app.goo.gl/XEqxaFsCNDGvBGc88

The thing is, one of the wheels is really bad. I need to get this working soon. I attempted to test out welding it, but my Lincoln Tombstone welder with 3/32 rod on the lowest setting still blows through. The steel is just not thick enough anywhere to weld a patch. The other issue is that, of course, I cannot find ANYTHING remotely close to it that will fit on this. The wheel is a 4.8-8, which is fine, but the spindle is studded so you can bolt it in. The outside bearing is 3/4 but the inside is 13/16 and the spindle length is a hair under 4". It's not like anything I see available.

What do I do here? What kind of plow is this? How can I get some rims for it? I can't even manage to find a small plow like this with gauge wheels.

Look on Miller Tire web site and see if the have any rims without centers the right size. Might be able to cut the center out and weld to new rim.

I think there are plenty of options up to and including using a bolt on hub and a weld on spindle if I had to. At any rate, I took another stab at welding a patch. It wasn't pretty, but it will keep the tube from protruding through the holes. I tried 'building up' a large hole with my welder, it worked fine, but it sure isn't pretty. I ground it down as best I could, ran some protective rubber bands inside, stuck in a tube, and put some new cheap tires on it. It works great.
I do have draft control on all of my tractors, but I thought the guage wheels would allow for it to follow the contour of teh ground and do a better job, no?

I am curious where you found such a nice piece of IH history.

I once had an IH s-tine harrow with those wheels on it with the same problem. I simply cut the center out of the old wheel and welded into a new rim.

If this is for field use and not for show, then no wheels would be required if used on tractor with draft controlled 3 point like the tractor shown in photo.

THe link shows a one inch bearing bore. Have bushings made to reduce them to the spindle size. The depth should be adjustable enough to make it function well. Jim

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

It should be no problem for a welding shop to weld in a patch, thin metal or not. A section could be cut from a common rim of similar size/shape and welded in.

The other alternative would be to weld the hub into another rim.

Should be no big deal, wither way, if you can't find an exact replacement ready to install.
