Can anyone recommend a wheel dolly that is good quality? I need to move the cars around in the shop and am looking to buy a set somewhere. I find some with steel wheels, nylon wheels, and of course china plastic. any help would be appreciated.
thanks, david

The new Harbor freight Daytona ones are really nice. We have a set with the stand that holds all 4. got ours on sale for $99 each

Steel wheels absolutely suck- they'll get stopped by something as small as fly squat. The cheap knock-off plastic wheels will chip apart after 6 rolls. The heavy nylon wheels are rounded, not flat, and hold up excellent.

Got a set last week for use in the shop. Pentagon Tool has casters with ball bearings in the wheels along with the swivels, which makes rolling easier than bushing type wheels. I read somewhere that they are USA made, but the box I received was from over seas. These were not that expensive, and they do work. I couldn't built them for what I paid for them. I would imagine the wheels might flat spot if someone left a vehicle parked on them for a long time. I have used them by my self several times to gain access to my lift, I would recommend them.

There's something to be said about getting what you pay for....

These are expensive, but good. Especially since you don't have to roll (or carry) around a jack to place them... Summit sells them.

I bought a set just like that from Eastwood. I am very happy with them. I like the fact that there is a rack for them. Was super easy pushing the mustang around my warehouse.

Honestly...these cheap ones from Harbor Freight.

I have a set of the Pittsburgh 1500 pound dollies too, but they don't roll near as nice as the cheapest ones in the link. My 69 shell has been permanently living on these dollies for the last several years. The black dollies roll really nice. Even out of the garage.
