Oversized axels

I ride BMX a bit and I have regular sized axels on my rims and tend to bend them and have to fix them or replace them alot. I was wondering if it was possible to change this axel to oversize without much trouble or if I have to get a whole new rim to obtain oversize axels. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

I think you will need new hubs/wheels. The oversize axles will barely fit thru the hub and would require pretty small bearings and different cones.
