The wheels may hold up better than the concrete.
Expect to see white dust trails where the casters roll.
Those trails will be crushed sand agregate that was the roughness of the surface texture.

But, metal wheels will carry more weight with less friction than any other wheel.

Another good choice is called a semisteel wheel.
They are made of sintered powdered steel and are very smooth and precise in shape.
