Adding wireless speakers to an Onkyo reciever to make it 5.1

Please excuse my naivete. I have a very modest home theater system consisting of a TLC 55' TV with an Onkyo TX-NR 575 receiver wired to a pair of Micca MB42 bookshelf speakers, a Micca MB42x-c center channel and a Polk Audio PSW10 subwoofer. I have everything working thus far. I have a pair Toshiba TY-GC1000 wireless speakers that I would like to add into the mix in the same room but for the life of me I can't figure out how to add them to the Onkyo receiver. I have tried using Google Home but there is a very noticeable lag between the wired components and the wireless ones which I can't seem to over compensate for. I am hoping that by connecting the wireless speaker to the receiver and calibrating it again I can get all of this solved. Can anyone point me to a tutorial how to set up wireless speakers on the Onkyo. I have tried adding the devices through their phone app and even searching by specific ip address and nothing works. Would greatly appreciate some guidance.

Thank you so much for your response. This solution looks to be adding wired speakers wirelessly. The Toshiba speakers I am trying to add are already wireless. I don't see how that Marmitek device is going to help me.

Could anyone advise me whether or not it would work if I attached a pair of Bluetooth Transmitters ( ie https://www.amazon.com/Giveet-Bluet...=B07198BBZN&psc=1&refRID=JTP8TPPM65AC1YFC219V) to the Surround speaker terminals on the back of my Onkyo receiver and then paired the individual receivers with my Yamaha wireless speakers. If that is possible does anyone have a recommendation for a solid but affordable Bluetooth Transmitter to do this with? Thank you for your help everyone.

No because the transmitter requires a low level line level outputs and wouldn't be suitable for connection directly to the AV receiver's high level speaker terminals. You could however employ something like this to convert the high level outputs to low level in order to then be able to connect the transmitter to the AV receiver:
