Plastic wheels on #81-139 my only option?

A home owner from Hemet, CA says:
My patio door needs new rollers #81-139 - this new version has plastic wheels; the old ones I'm replacing are steel. I read 2 posts here that indicate: (1) plastic wheels are the only option for this item #81-139 and (2) steel is a longer lasting choice. Am I stuck with plastic wheels?
