I suggested using old wheels because I would be hesitant to load the weight of trailer directly on the lip of the cast brake drum. Its the face of the drum that transfers the weight of the rig through the axle assembly to the wheel and tire. The drum portion is acutally thinner than you would expect and could crack.
Additionally the spread of the dolly cradle might not be narrow enough to fit the drum anyway.
