Car Dollys - What are good ones to get?

Don't want the ones with the integral jack. Just the regular ones.

Looks like the HF might be kind of cheaply made.

I would want them to be wide enough to handle the tire width of a C6 Corvette. So I want them to handle probably a 12" wide tire.

What do you all suggest?

Thanks.

I got a set from summit to move my camaro around the shop, It i have the 12x16 they also have some 16x16 that should work i haven't had my dolly's under my C5 but i do have 255X60X15s on the rear of my camaro but the 16x16 probably would be the best for your C6 IMHO.

Thanks!

I hadn't thought of looking at Summit. It looks like they have sets of 4 for good prices.

I think the 12" wide dolly would do it.
I just looked up specs for the tires for a C6.
Even the optional larger size rear (325/30ZR19) has a tread width of 11.4".

THESE look good.

Roger,
You may want to look at these:

http://www.tireskate.com/index.php

They make a very nice set of "skates" in various sizes and weight capacities. The casters are what make the difference. Ball bearings for the axle, not just the swivel. The website has a lot of info. Prices are reasonable for the quality of product.

Steve
