retired…,
i prefer poly wheel. they are less likely to get a flat spot and roll easier.

ADKA…,
the bigger the wheel, the easier it rolls. the wider the wheel, the more weight it will carry. this is a generalization, but a good rule of thumb. as to locking, you can get a wheel lock or a total lock whick locks both the swivel and the wheel. again, what you are using them are might determine which to use. wheel lock only is cheaper and most of the time good enough.

i like using 4” or 6” wheel, depending on size and weight of the cabinet. locks on all wheel is better because i usually only lock 2 wheels but sometimes that’s all you can get to easily.
