Zodiac or other transom wheels...

I have a 3.4 Avon and on this I have launching wheels like these...
These work fine and have always handled the weight I have put on them.
I want to startusing a 3.8m zodiac I have. I made my own launching wheels for it and now am going to remove them and make good my transom (see other thread).
I did want to use zodiac wheels as these look as though they don't need additional holes through the transom.
Does anyone know how these work as it is hard to find info or pictures of these? Also does anyone know how strong these are? And does anyone know the best place to get them, as I got a price today and was suprised how much they were? And is there different sizes for different zodiacs?
If not can anyone suggest alternatives?
Many thanks for taking the time,

They are strong but not very useful as you have to take the wheels completely off to invert them unlike the flip up ones you have. The bolts tend to rust up to.
