Why do I get the feeling that the rim is off a lawnmower. Those run bushings instead of bearings. And that's fine at 5mph, but when you get into the mid teens or twenties they won't last long, if they even last at all.

If you run it like that it will potentially weld itself to the bolt... It needs some bushings, and hubs that have a grease nipple..

Looks like lawn mower wheels to me, see if the bushings will knock out of the hub, I had to use a flanged bearing to get wheels like that to work, cheap on Amazon.

Not sure what size you need, is that a 5/8" axle? You'll also need the inner diameter of the hub itself after the bushings are removed (if it's removable bushings). Do you have a micrometer?
