Why would you install wheels onto a head?

For a cab, you'd just need casters.
I think the bigger casters are easier to roll around, but you lose more of the bass coming out of the cab, as opposed to smaller casters.

The problem of losing bass is solved by simply installing the castors on the side of a cab. Once its in position, you simply tip it back onto its base.

For high quality castors, you want these guys:
http://www.flints.co.uk/catalogue.html
scroll down to Section Two: Scenic Ironmongery & Rigging > castors

What size to get depends on the weight of the cab, but since your profile has your amp listed as a spider III, I'll assume you have the matching 412 cab, which weighs about 30kgs. Hence, any of those castors in that catalogue will be fine, but I recommend the budget ones. Get 2 braked, and 2 normal.

Also, dont install castors on the head. Thats just plain lazy. If you can't lift a spider III head, you need to man up.

Bass frequencies from the cab are transferred to the floor, increasing the "amount of bass you hear". The less of the cab in contact with the floor, the less bass response. Its not a major worry with guitar amps though. If it really worries you, do as I suggested above and tip the cab onto its side.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?

Huh, that's a cool idea, putting them on the side, I never thought of that.

And yeah, you explained the bass thing pretty well, so I won't bother.
