Do you guys make wheels for your cases?

    I was looking at the feet on the bottom of my case, and inside they're held in place by simple set of tabs arranged in a circle, such that the "claws" are facing outward. It would be easy enough to supplant with a set of wheels if you made them...but I somehow don't think you do.

    If you don't make wheels for them, what is the diameter of the holes the feet are "plugged" into?

    I don't think NZXT makes casters you can buy them from a local hardware shop or online. If you already have the case can't you measure the size? it's probably different on each case.

    I just don't want to tear the feet off to find out if I have to get them myself. It will destroy the feet to remove them (besides, I don't want to take apart my entire system mid-semester) and I want to have a solution prior to taking them off. If I knew the size I could go get the casters ahead of time, and do it all at once, but without, I'm reluctant.

    Grab some casters and a block of wood. make a dolly that the whole case can just sit on and no need to mod anything or even drill into the chassis.

    That's a good idea, then it has room to breathe under the case rather than being on the floor. Cheapo MDF/Plywood should do fine.

    I actually want this to look nice too. Which is actually a problem, I can't find casters that look nice, though I have found a few that might work. Erocker's suggestion looks good, but I can't tell if those wheels turn or if they're fixed to only roll in one direction, also, with their being proprietary, I'm wondering about a good fit to my case.

    Yes. :) There is also a locking mechanism so they don't move at all.
