caster question

I need ideas on specific casters to use, where to buy, etc.
I built a cart to hold approx 200 lbs of weighlifting plates 18 years ago. The casters (4 inch, plate, rubber, swivel, with brake) that I used were bought at a big box store. They were rated at approx 300 lbs each.
I now need to expand the cart for more weight, and will need to add two more casters.
I am also going to replace the 4 casters that have been on the cart from the beginning. They roll OK, but I think are getting harder to roll. The cart gets rolled approx 10 feet, depending on what workout I (and now my sons) are doing that day. Garage floor is smooth concrete, sometimes the cart gets moved a few feet onto the driveway (pavers).

Where did you buy them originally? I would use same source.

Or, if you have a Harbor Freight in your location they carry a large selection of castors.
