Default 5" 2 piece steel cart wheels

I bought a $50 frame with 4 steel (2 part) wheels - all flat and rusted out. The 5/8" hubs were good. I'm trying to find replacement wheels but am confused by the center hub portion. The tires were 4.10 - 3.50 - 5. Question: can I buy just the steel rims, and will the hubs fit? Can I put 6" wheels on these hubs (for the rear tires only)?

Here's a couple of pics of the wheel and hub.

Follow up: is there a "hub" to convert larger golf cart tires/rim to fit a 5/8th axle? If so, where can I find the part? Thanks.

As long as you buy the right rims with the same bolt pattern measurements, yep.

Don't buy just any run-of-the-mill rims, buy some meant for go karts.

Try the usual:
BMI Karts
Go PowerSports
MFG Supply
Etc....

I love the small tires though, the 4.10x3.50-5", or the same in 4" or 6".
