Hello! Please see our 87-008 Capitol sliding window roller. This appears close to what you need. Is it a match?
A quick learner says:
The question is, will the change from a wheel and a tire, to a flat wheel be a problem? That is what I am hoping to get an answer for, from you folks.

Ah, I see. I actually didn't notice the rubber tire on your original photo, but I see what you mean now. I think that may be an alteration. In all the years I've worked with Capitol until their demise, I never came across a rubber tire like that. I always used our 87-008 with the flat wheel. It could be that whoever originally installed your rollers felt that the tire was needed and added one on last minute, but I can't say for sure. Could you simply put the old tires on the new roller?
