1.625 inch flex wheel hole

So someone from my school bought 1.625 inch flex wheels and the one shown in the picture is the one that came. I don’t know what kind of inserts would go into it because the inner circle diameter is one inch. I have already asked around on discord and everyone was surprised and had never seen the wheels before. Is there anything I can do to still use these wheels with vex shafts or do I just need to get the other wheels off the vex website.

the vex legal 1.625 flexwheels don’t have that large hole. You could probably get it to interface with a vex shaft in a few ways (namely by jamming something on a shaft slightly bigger into the hole), but it wouldn’t be legal for competition use.
