Default Case wheels

So my new case is significantly heavier than my previous case and added about 30 pounds to the entire thing making it weigh something stupid.

Anyway, the bottom feet of my case (Fractal Design Define XL R2) are screwed in with just one screw, the only rolling feet I've seen had 4 screw holes and I don't know where to look for something like this.

You have two options. What Joe linked, or these.

I had a set of these on my old Antec 1200.

I'm guessing I'll need to drill holes into the bottom of my case to mount these?

Yes, as it's safer to go that route. A single screw setup can snap, and when the PC lands it can knock some things around causing damage.
