My concern is in particular what will wheels do to the phenomenal stability I so enjoy when viewing.

Just went to the Discmount web site, then to their user group page, typed WHEELS in the search block, and found a post with a detailed explanation of the project, and many pictures from someone who had built a simple system he seems to like.

Just built a dolly for the mount similar to the one that was described on the Discmount site. Used the same 3 inch wheels. Some stability is sacrificed, but not nearly as much as I anticipated. The mount is still far more stable than the Gibraltar (without wheels) it replaced. And the 3 inch wheels can be used on a lawn, if you're not in a hurry.
