Metal or Nylon wheel?

A quick learner from Garden Grove, California says:
Need to order two "Columbia Door Bottom Roller" for my missing screen door rollers, but not sure whether to get the "Metal Wheel & 84-083" or "84-064 Nylon wheel" ones since I lost the old roller wheels. Any advice?

Personally, I prefer the stability of the metal roller. The nylon wheel creates lesser noise, but lacks the durability of the metal wheel. The general rule of thumb is if you're near a body of salt water, go with nylon-- otherwise, use the metal wheel, lubricating with a silicone-based spray.
