Check out Harbor Freight. I bought a set for the vette years ago. They worked ok. Mine have the steel wheels, but from what I've read they now have poly casters. So I don't know if that is better or worse.

Jeffm said: I was going to buy a set from Auto Anything last year but never got around to it. I think they had a regular set and a heavy duty set. I think if I remember correctly if you sign up on their site they start emailing discount codes for stuff you looked at. 
I would still like to get a set for storage. It's a pain backing the car in tight in the back corner and then trying to put a cover on it.
Let us know what you end up getting.

The shop bought a set of them from either Northern Tool or Harbor Freight a couple of weeks ago. Seem to be decent quality, and not very expensive, compared to others.

I bought mine from Summit and they have poly rollers, I can push the vette around garage by myself.
The one's with the self lifter are more money but sure does save time jacking up each wheel to slide roller under. If you are going to use them a lot they may be worth the investment.
