Track is worn; can i get nylon wheels?

A home owner from Ottawa .ontario says:
Time to replace the replace on a heavy sliding patio door. Old ones are Truth 30410 with steel wheels. The track is Al. and is wearing a bit. I think i might need a replacement with nylon wheels to cut down on the wear. What do you recommend?
Thanks

Thanks for posting, Bill! Actually, if your door is heavy enough to cause wear on your track, then nylon wheels would likely just break. You should stick with the steel wheels; check out our 81-018 and its stainless steel equivalent, the 81-149. Compare the measurements and let us know if they do not match up.

For the problems with your track, you may want to look at our track covers. We have a short and tall variety. Look at our 80-103 and 80-100, respectively. You may also want to see our tutorial video on how to install these track covers.
