why not just use omni-wheels instead?

Meh, ive seen a fair few companies who "claim" a lot of things...I wouldn't take onmi wheels outdoor full stop. I can see then clogging up with dirt of something and locking up.
What i was saying about the hill thing was that omni wheels have smaller wheels inside them, these have to brakes on them.Say you had a four wheeled robot, what stopping it from rolling sideways down a hill?
