do you specifically want those wheels , or any wheel that is omnidirectional?
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

VEX sells them. Also you can try EBAY, sometimes they have VEX parts.

Look at the sizes of them, the cheap ones are tiny.
Also the more expensive ones are designed to carry heavier loads probably meaning that they have extra stuff such as ball bearings to take into account
