How about using a heavy shelf bracket and cut it so that you can put some caster wheels on it, drill the holes in the auger housing and use a steel plate on the inside and the angle bracket on the outside, bolt it from the inside out and mount the wheels, you know the type with the bolt/threaded stem, I would use at least a 7/16 grade 8 bolts and some thread lock.

    Well,actually thats what they’re for…to take the wear and be easily/relatively cheap to replace..however if they are steel,any small welding shop should be able to build them back up(or surface new ones) using”hard surfacing rod” which is a much tougher steel,thereby extending their life 3-4 fold.Also there are heavy duty”commercial”shoes available for some Honda SBs,check w/your dealer.He will need Model and Serial Numbers to check.
