Northern Industrial Tools Auto Wheel Dollies - Pair, 1000-Lb. Capacity Each
Worked great for me at home
I bought a couple sets when they were on sale to move around a '65 Mustang I'm restoring in my home garage. Assembly was simple enough and the quality was decent. I was able to use these to move my car by myself without too much effort. In my case, the plastic casters rolled easily in my garage. The floor is finished concrete and is relatively smooth but not perfect (not coated, small cracks here and there). My car was stripped too so it was light which definitely helps. I would think that the main issue someone would have with these is with heavier vehicles or trying to move a vehicle on rougher surfaces like asphalt. The casters may not work well and could get damaged on rougher stuff. But in a garage setting with standard finished concrete in good shape I think they're great. They are fairly wide to accommodate larger tires too. Overall these offer excellent value.

Good product for the price
I wasn't a fan of the plastic wheels but figured for the price if they failed I could upgrage to metal wheels cheaper than buying the more expensive dollies. The hardware is extremely cheap and I had a half dozen of them pull the threads right out of the nut. Not a big deal if you have a hardware selection on hand. The floor must be clean and it helps to have two people as the car wants to go any direction except straight. These will hold a fullsize car no problem. It will be interesting to see how the wheels hold up and if they get flat spots on them from storing a car on them.

Auto Wheel Dollies
After searching the internet and local stores, we purchased these dollies on line for their great price! We purchased 2 sets and used the dollies to move our equipment in our leather moccasin shop to a new location on our property and they worked great. We also will use them in the future to move automobiles in our car Storage Business, when needed.

Not suitable for 3,300lb automobile
I purchased these dollies to move a '69 Chevelle around in my garage. Assembly was very straight forward and only required an hour or so to install the wheels onto the dollies. Once the car was placed on the dollies, it became very difficult to move. Once all 16 wheels (4/dolly) were pointed in the same direction, the task became easier, however two men could not get the dollies (with car) oriented correctly to accomplish this. We actually had to jack up the car, point the wheels on all 4 dollies in the same direction, and only then would the car move. We could not get the car to move easily around the garage on a smooth finished floor. The dollies were returned to Nothern Tool for a full refund. Northern Tools customer service was great and handled the return with no issues.

Having looked everywhere I found these at higher prices. These are the exact same for less. They work very well and do not bend out of shape.I will buy more soon.

Very useful for moving a car around on a flat surface. This item held up well to the abuse I put it through this winter when I would be moving my 1996 corvette daily to do some engine work.Generally takes two people to easily move vehicle. Will use again.

Very good space saver
They work great just remember the vehicle is still heavy and it will take two people more than likely to move it easily.

Auto Wheel Dollies
I purchased these dollies for my husband to make it easier for him to move around the 1954 Ford pickup he is restoring. He had no problem positioning them and says they are fantastic and just what he needed. The quality and price are really great too. My husband and I would definitely recommend these dollies. They definitely match the quality we've come to know and expect from anything we buy from Northern Tool.

Kit came without nuts and bolts-- 15 bucks at a hardware store or wait for customer service--I needed the product now. Easy to assemble. Wheels are low quality - do not roll across concrete very easily. Best I can say is so so
