castors made of steel

In case of completely destroyed wheels gears of 4-wheeled suitcase, usually the replacement by steel casters from mechanical engineering are working well:

  • Durability: indestructible (except with a steam roller)
  • Steering characteristics: excellent
  • Running features: very good
  • Weight: slightly increased
  • Noise level: is increased considerably
  • Appearance: well - check by yourself

We strongly recommend the replacement of the two wheel holder on the handle side of the case. But we also did "low-cost"solutions, where only one wheel gear, and the wheels only at three other suitcase corners were replaced.

eight-wheel suitcase

Eight-wheel suitcase we can save as well. Depending on the size we use ball bearing wheels with 40, 50, 60, or 64mm in diameter.
Our replacement wheels are usually a bit stronger than the usually very frail originals. They may look a bit bulky, but compensate with much better durability and running characteristics.
With some eight-wheelers, axles are fixed in the wheel gear and can only be removed with great effort and risk of destruction. In this case, we recommend replacement by castors.
