Thanks in advance!
The landing gear you listed is not pre drilled, but it's very easy to do. Just measure and mark where the holes need to go. Clamp down the landing gear to your work bench and use a small drill bit to make your pilot holes. Then drill out to match the axle size making sure not to drill out any more material than absolutely necessary. Make sure you don't breathe any of the dust from the carbon fiber, it is evil!

Here is an example of what you could use. LINK

The axles that I linked have a 4mm diameter, so if you went with those specifically, you would just need to drill out the plastic axle on the wheel a bit to fit the axle shaft. Use a nut to attach the axle shaft to the landing gear and a 4mm set collar to hold the wheel in place.
