AC Delco 34646 Wheel Dollies any good?

Does anyone have experience with AC Delco 34646 Wheel Dollies?

http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...2121&ppt=C0192

Strength and easy to roll are my highest priorities.
They are rated 2000 lbs each so should be sturdy enough for my 4150 lb Roadmaster. They have 3" steel wheels (with no tire) and are supposed to be ball bearings but no grease zerks.
1) If you have tried these are they easy to roll around with a heavy vehicle on them?
2) Many of the more expensive wheel dollies have polymer wheels. Is this important to the wheels being easy to roll?
3) Will steel wheels mark up the floor? It is not painted.
Thanks

I have some like that, but have a bar between wheels they I believe are steel wheel but not sure, they do not mark the floor, and mine is painted. I can push mine around no trouble with the Terraplane on it. and they were $40.00 less than those Delco. That's $40.00 per pair.

I passed on the AC Delco dollies. Check out tireskate.com I have read very favorable reviews on these dollies and they look good to me. More expensive than harbor freight, but probably well worth it. They also have skate top that will bolts to their skates and allows the frame to be supported by the skate. For larger wheels, they have frame dollies that bolt to the frame. This stuff could be built, but quality castors are expensive so they may be better deal. I plan on ordering some next week.
Moved my '37 Roadmaster home yesterday, bought a couple of harbor freight furniture dollies yesterday for $11.99 each on sale. Glad I did because the rear of car had to be dragged sideways to get it out of garage it was stored in. Amazingly the car had not been driven since '52, but all four tires held air. The right front wheel was locked up, but I was able to drag car out of the garage with my truck. After it was moved to my new garage, I put a dolly under the locked wheel and pushed it in my garage with my truck. I'll let you know how the tireskates work when I receive them.
Thanks

My dollies aren't HF, they came from the Fleet Farm store. Nice looking Buick.

Thanks.
Still have planning to do, but at least I won't have to drive across town to make measurements.
