Default Eddison living van large wheel wanted

I am looking for one cast wheel for my Eddison living van.
The wheel is 34.5 diameter and 4.25 wide. The axle hole is approx 2
One of mine is cracked and so before having it welded I thought Id ask if anyone had one kicking about.

Regards wayne

We had cracked one on the museum van. I welded it up then machined the outside diam true and shrunk on a steel tyre. This seems to have improved thing somewhat.
