door wall wheels

A home owner from Michigan says:
Is it ok to use these wheels (81-166) as a replacement for metal wheel rollers of the same size and design?

As long as the dimensions are the same then you should have no problem. Personally, I prefer metal rollers. I feel they hold up better under the weight of the door.
A home owner from michigan says:
I would have preferred to use metal wheels, I didn't see any with the same dimensions on your website. Could you tell me if there is another one that would work with metal rollers?

Thanks for getting back to us. At this time, the 81-166 is a new product and a version with metal wheels is currently not available. Like Dave said, plastic wheels should still work, assuming that all the dimensions are the same. If you're not sure what you have, though, then it may be best if we see a couple of photos of your existing roller. Please make sure that it is removed from the door before you take your pictures.
