They will simply be regular wheels about 6 inches with solid rubber tires like you find on a lot of carts. I'll do the locking down arms out of metal tubing myself.

It'll be pretty simple, the arms will be levered with a short arm of tubing over a pin stud for leverage. The leg will be levered down, lifting the bench, and pass over center and come to rest against a stop pin. At that point the tubing lever arm will come off and slip back into the storage hole in the framing to lock the leg from accidentally flipping back past the center point and collapsing. Once at the new location I'll draw the locking tube out and lower the leg and then just slip the tube back in to hold the leg and wheel up off the floor a little.

At least that's the mental concept. I have not even sketched it in CAD as yet.
