For my Agito "wheels" I made them 4"

However, this size is REALLY hard to balance on, I can't even imagine balancing on actual wheels that size that can move.

When I made my air treks, we used scooter wheels :/ They weren't exactly accurate, but they worked for the most part. It's really hard to balance on them, though>.> you'll be carrying them around for th emost of the con unless you locked the wheels so they can't roll.

that might be tricky plus i imagine that the 120mm would be difficult to balance on properly
