1925 Model TT wheels or other options?

Ate dinner with my uncle last weekend, he said they're getting ready to put his in-laws into an assisted living center and his BIL said he doesn't have the time or the space to mess with the TT. Every time he goes out to their place, he turns the crank on the engine to keep it free, it ran up until a few years ago, hasn't been attempted since. Great G-pa couldn't get it to fit in his garage, so he chopped the top about 3 inches and right now it has no glass in it (not a problem, but we may need to straighten it out a bit prior to having glass cut.)

Uncle wants to get it back running so the grandkids can go for rides on his 10 acres, plus do the annual parades, etc. He's not looking to restore it, or modify a whole lot. He wants to keep it in restorable condition. He said the front wheels rotted so Great G-pa put tractor rims with 3 rib tires on it. I showed him pics of my neighbors AA and he really liked the steel wheels. The deal is, the AA's are 5 lug and domed, the TT's appear to be just mounted with the hub nut.

My idea to get rid of the split rims would be to get some clincher rims. Have a center water jetted that has the same spoke pattern, but do it where you could cover them with wood spokes that encompass the steel spokes, The center would attach to the hub and it would go on as normal. I have a lathe so if I needed to machine some hubs, I could.
