I don't think it's the size of the wheels there is something else causing the problem. I use small swivel wheels off an office chair on a 2x3 foot dolly and can easily move a car engine around the garage.

Good choice. I like to use casters that lock both wheel turning and swivel. I don't like it when the base swivels sideways as I'm trying to feed something through. On some of my later shop stands, I used 2x4s underneath, which extend a few inches in front of the stand (like outriggers), then used fixed casters on the back and double lock swivels on the front. The outrigger made it easier to step on the locks, and the fixed back wheels eliminated any movement.
