Nylon vs. Steel Rollers

A home owner says:
Does it make a difference if I replace nylon rollers with steel ones?
I found the rollers and assembly I need on swisco.com, 81-143
The current rollers are nylon. Will it spoil the tracks if I get steel rollers?

I don't think it will spoil the track. Steel rollers also tend to be stronger, but you wouldn't want to use them if you live in a salt air environment due to corrosion.
