Thanks for looking!
There are wheel adapters that bolt to the axle flange that allow the use of a different bolt pattern wheel. This changes the wheel position inside the fender/wheel well, so the wheel/tire fitment when using the adapters has to be checked and verified that they will fit as they should. Good adapters (the only ones you shoud even consider) cost nearly as much as some wheels.

The best plan would be to buy new axles for the D-60 w/the 5 on 4.75" pattern, IMHO.
