i have a great set of wheels for the 3.4 m sib, they are large diameter and the bar is curved so the wheel is actually under the boat which balances the weight just nicely
if you have a load of stuff in the boat, ie bag, full fuel tank, cool box full of fish they do tend to bend a little bit as the wheel can rub the underside of the boat if it is too heavily loaded
so i would venture to suggest that if you were to get wheels then stick with the ones that have a straight leg arrangement, mine would definately not cope with the sort of weight you are thinking about
