Default Fitting 12mm Monster Truck wheels onto a 17mm hex

Hi everyone. I have a Kyosho Nitro Crusher from the 80's I've done a complete restore on. It has 19mm hexes for the monster truck wheels. I've found a way to interchange the original hexes with Kyosho Inferno MP10 17mm hexes. But now I come to find that most, if not all, real-looking monster truck wheels have 12mm hexes. I can't find any that have a 17mm hex. I can only find 12mm to 17mm hex adapters everywhere but not the other way around. I want an adapter or whatever it takes to go from 17mm to 12mm. Then, I can buy all the monster truck tires and wheels I want and not worry if they will fit.

Anyone have ideas or know of a solution? (I'm at a point of finding a machine shop to custom-make an adapter to fit over the 17mm hex and have a 12mm hex on the other end.)
