Roller wheel help

My bump stops have been nearly flattened completely. I want to remove them and replace them with either a set of steel rollers, or a set of caster wheels. I'm looking for help/information on either option.

I read where someone mentioned the fear of twisting the frame when the weight transfers to the rollers/wheels. Is this a legitimate concern? I live on a short cul-d-sac, with a steep transition from my inclined street to the lower, level street, with hips on either side, so angling isn't an option. When get to the lower street, I need to turn sharp. Will there be an issue using roller wheels? This is why I considered caster wheels. That, and i recently saw casters on a 5er.

If i go with casters, are 2 casters rated at 1,000 lbs each going to hold up? What's your thought on what percentage of the TT's weight will be placed on those wheels?

What are your thoughts/experiences/beliefs. I'm looking for any and all input.

PS- no idea why the photo is upside down. I'll try to fix it later.
