It's a simple case of making a packer so they clear... which will obviously only need to be 2cm or less. You could cut it from something like a plastic/nylon kitchen cutting board or hardwood.

The only comment I'd make about those short leg wheels is with a V hull you need to ensure the hull and OB skeg will be sufficiently far enough above undulating ground.
