  I have several old front wheel assemblies from various  lawn mowers/bush 
hogs that had inflatable tires. In some cases, when they went  flat/wore 
out, it was more economical to buy a complete new wheel/tire assembly  than to 
pay to fix the old tire. 
  Most even have a grease fitting ( zerk ) to keep them  
lubricated.....they make excellent pulleys/sheaves for ropes in 
 strength to 
whatever bracketry you design.
  Maybe check around some of your local places that service  commercial 
lawnmowers/tractors/bush hogs etc. for their discards. ( You can  usually 
straighten most wheels if bent to be serviceable in this application.  )
  Or places like Tractor Supply, Northern Tool, etc for new  wheels aren't 
that expensive. ( But free is always best  :)   )
  Hope this helps.
