Dual to single wheel conversion

I have a 1949 KB-5 with a dual rear wheel setup. They have the five large lug nuts holding them on. I would like to single the wheels out in the rear. Did IHC build a single rim for the back axle of a KB-5? If so, where can I find one? I thought I would ask before I had new ones cut for it. I also don't want to try looking for something that was never made.

Re: Dual to single wheel conversion

Just run one wheel with the inner thimble nut. They never made "budd" (stud pilot) wheels without the offset that I'm aware of.
