bathtub drain with oversized flange

I am in the process of remodeling my bathroom. My existing tub is in good condition with the exception that there is a small amount of rust around the drain flange. This is not hard water surface rust, it is into the cast iron. I am replacing all of the existing plumbing including drains. If I can come up with a new drain that has an oversized flange outer diameter, it would cover this rust area and I could avoid replacing the entire tub. Does anyone have any leads. I am a newby to this forum. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the cast iron is rusting, it will continue and blow out the porcelain coating on top.
I'd just replace it now.
