Good idea, but I'd change the name to either "Wheel Rounding" or "frictionless wheels"

This tech should be in advancement center and researched for 8 turns to give 1 more movement to all wheeled units such as wagons(maybe not), chariots, battering rams, seige mantlet, hwacha, catapults, canon, and ballista. Trebuchets don't have wheels.

Really. I don't wanna see 4 speed rams. They are fast enough as they are (that would be 9 effective range with wagon). Heavy catapult being more mobile is also not a very good perspective.
The only thing I could agree to is chariot. They were not really slower than cavalry, nor that much less manuverable - they were just more restricted by the terrain (while having good wheels).

Agreed, +1 speed to seige weapons would be drastic.
Still: Advancements center researchable
+ 1 speed one for chariots and mantlets

Change: Not for every wheeled unit.
- 6 turn cost

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

Like faster? Or armored? Or with greater capacity?

I suggested before 3 variants of updated wagon:
Faster - +1 speed;
Bigger - +1 carry capacity;
Armored - +some armor, is not burnable.

Off-topic. I agree with Endru that chariots need a speed boost though, they are currently underused.

Yes, chariots are underused also siege mantlets could really use the speed buff.

Speed is actually a pretty huge buff.
