You don't have to pay anything. If you have two wheels, you can put them together with the tools you already have.
Can you describe better what you mean by "49 numbers, half 4/4 half 5/4"?
Are you trying to split a wheel into two parts?
Just explain what you're looking to do. We'll be happy to help, and probably other LD players can do so too.

For the prize coverage you want ("49 numbers, half 4/4 match, half 5/4 match"), you are going to have some very large and expensive wheels.
You will find several wheeling links on the "Recommended Links" page at this site.
... La Jolla Coverings Repository.
... Peter's Wheels Page.
... Covering Repository of Uros Boltin.

Peter's Wheels Page has these Pick-6 wheels:
... 24 numbers, 4/4 match, 784 lines.
... 25 numbers, 5/4 match, 375 lines.
There's your "49 numbers, half 4/4 match, half 5/4 match".
Put them together and you're looking at 1159 combinations. That is a huge cost.

Those two wheels are "world class" wheels. The 5/4 was made by Uros Boltin, and the 4/4 is in the La Jolla Repository.
You aren't going to find any that are smaller than those, that still give you the 49 numbers with "half 4/4 and half 5/4" you asked about.

Are you sure that's what you want?
Look more closely. You're looking to play "half" of the 49 numbers with 5/4 coverage, and "half" of them with 4/4 coverage.
Consider either half of your coverage.
... You need to get 5 winning numbers in one half, or 4 winning numbers in the other half.
... If you get only 3 winning numbers in either half, then obviously you only get 3 winning numbers in the other half.
... If that happens, you won't cover a prize.

That wheeling method sounds expensive and not practical.
When you get up into 4/4 or 5/4 coverage for large fields of numbers in a Pick-6 game, you are looking at some serious expense.
There exists a 49-number 6/3 wheel in 164 lines. It guarantees you a minimum of one 3-number win. You could get more, but you won't get less. That's the minimum, and it averages about 2.9 3-number wins in steady play, so you get some of your money back while playing for a good hit. It seems a lot more practical than the method you're looking at.
