Window rollers

A quick learner from Costa Mesa, CA (92626) says:
I've used Home Depot G-3038 which are way too weak to roll the windows and therefore do not last. I can cut the track with a Dremel tool to adjust the length for a better roller and re-drill the holes for locating and securing, if needed.

There are currently two sets on the bottom of each window. Window weights +40 lbs.

The goal: a roller that permits easy sliding the window.

Thank you in advance and have a great day. Rusty

Our 87-205 roller should hold up more weight than the G-3038, but the wheels are 5/16" in diameter to your 3/8" diameter. Could you still get it to work?
