Stop breaking your back moving your car – please try our #1 best car dolly instead! Because of the ball bearings, skate makes moving vehicles up to 6,000 lbs. more than doable for just one person. Simply put a tire on each steel plate (x large for easy loading), and move your car with only half the resistance you would get from normal car dolly ball bearings.

Why We Like It – 5060 Tire Skates Bearings Moving

These heavy duty tire skates from Pentagon Tools take the daunting (and seemingly impossible) task of moving a 3-ton vehicle and make it achievable by the average person! The quality skates feature 3” premium ball bearing castors are rated up to 6,000 lbs., require only half the force of a standard caster to move, and the integrated hole on each skate makes storage a breeze.

Pros
  • Ball Bearings Skate Makes Moving A Car Easy
  • Easy Assembly
  • Free Delivery
Cons
  • Minor Assembly Required – Installation Of The Ball Bearing Wheels
  • No Brakes (A Major Safety Issue)

Performance

These tire skates by Pentagon Tools will be able to move most vehicles, as they can support up to 6,000 lbs. (the Goplus Dollies Skates Vehicle Diamond also support up to 6,00 lbs., but they have two brakes on each skate). Using this dolly, ball bearings skate over both smooth and rough surfaces with ease. Unfortunately, this tire wheel car dolly lacks brakes, unlike many other models, so its ability to efficiently move a vehicle may become a safety hazard if used on an uneven surface. Speaking of uneven surface, check out our 1000W Zipper Off Road Electric Scooter review, if you need a ride that works well on uneven surfaces.

Design

Each solid steel car dolly ball bearing skate is 12 inches by 16 inches, with four wheels per skate. Oddly enough, brakes are not included on this model (the Red Hound 12 Inches Tire Car Dolly, on the other hand, has two brakes per wheel!) Individually, each wheel car dolly ball bearing skate can hold up to 1,500 lbs. Each tire wheel car skate will need to be assembled when you get it, but all you will have to do is attach the 3″ castors to the skates.

Value

This set of four tire skates by Pentagon Tools will set you back $154.70 (the WEN 73017 Vehicle 1500 Pound Capacity are a cheaper alternative, although they only come in pairs). This is really the main drawback of this product, as you can purchase other sets of tire skates for less money that also have brakes. Pentagon Tools does offer free shipping, and each skate includes an integrated hole for easy storage, but we still think it’s a hard sell for the additional $20-$30 you have to pay as opposed to similar models.

5060 Tire Skates Bearings Moving Wrap Up

This set of four tire skates (rated up to 6,000 lbs.) by Pentagon Tools are no doubt a well-made product. The lack of brakes is concerning, and the price is slightly on the high side, but all things considered, these are still a great tool to have because they reduce moving resistance by over 50%. If you’re looking for a reliable, easy-to-store way to move your car, then you will definitely be happy with this purchase.
