Thetford 27 gallon Smart Tote modification

I want to modify the tires on my Smart Tote but do not have it at the moment. Does anyone know the axle dimensions? Length, diameter and also the width of the manufacturer supplied wheels. I can't find the info anywhere and Thetford customer support claims they don't know it. Thanks in advance for any responses.

Here you go. Keep in mind that our tanks might be different.

Axle: 1/2" diameter, 22-7/8" long (assuming the press nuts are bottomed out).

Tire: 1-3/4" wide on the thread. 7-1/8" diameter.

There is 3/8" play on each tire. That involves knowing how wide the tires are at the axle which I don't have any easy way to determine. (It's narrower than the tread width.)

Let me know if you need anything else (like a picture of the tire).

I probably should point out that the axle is not just a straight shaft. It's bent in the middle to connect to the tank. It would NOT be easy to find something similar to replace it with.
