81-141 bearings shot after 6 years

I purchased 2 new rollers (81-141) 6 years ago and noticed last fall and this year that the sliding door was getting harder to close. I took the door off this past weekend and all the bearings are shot. I would think they would last longer than 6 years. This is a wood/metal clad Loewen sliding door that is triple glazed. Suggestions?

If your door is triple glazed then it's probably quite heavy. I'm not sure if any roller would last longer that 6 years under that kind of pressure. It also depends on how often the door is used. How long did your original rollers that came with the door last?
