I received 1 of the 8 wheels that I ordered through Amazon. The remaining 7 have been shipped. The wheel appears to be of reasonable quality but is not what it was advertised to be. The wheel that I received does not have a roller bearing hub but rather a metal bushing. I see this as deceptive advertising. I hope I am not terribly disappointed in its performance. If I was not in need of these wheels, I would return the entire order.
Like mentioned -- these are not roller bearings. It's a metal bushing. Actual measured inner diameter of the metal bushing is 1/4" -- a 1/4-20 bolt or 1/4" lag bolt fit through with no problem. Outside diameter of the bushing is 5/16". I have no idea where they are getting the 8.2mm number. Wheel is hard plastic.
Trying to replace luggage wheels is a real challenge. However, some can be replaced without excessive expense. These fit perfectly in my suitcase so I am very satisfied. Make sure you can remove your existing wheels and that these are the right size in your specific case.
