If you’re looking to upgrade your current static wire rack casters and wheels, look no further, CasterHQ offers the most durable on the market. At CasterHQ we carry a high-quality variety of universal casters for wire shelving and top-of-the-line polyurethane wheels. The O.E. replacement shelving caster fits most wire shelving units and metal wire shelving rack tubing. The line of wheels for shelving units can be expected to be durable, strong, and chemical-resistant, with a non-marking polyurethane tread secured on a polyolefin core.
Some of the greatest benefits polyurethane offers is the high resistance to grease, oils, and acids up to 12% acidity. In addition, they have smooth roll-ability, ergonomics, moderate to quiet noise levels, and are wonderful for floor protection.
If you are interested in wire rack wheels ONLY we carry those replacements as well.

How To Remove and Install Wire Shelving Wheels
To install these casters on a metal or wire rack with no casters simple press these casters into the legs with moderate force until the stem no longer shows and the casters sit flush. To remove simply lay down the wire rack and pull the wire rack casters out of the legs with moderate force. Our wire rack casters should install and remove by hand. No tools are normally needed. You can always change the wheels if you don't need to buy complete casters as well. Click Here to visit our web page to purchase the wheels separately. To remove the old wheels from your casters you will need a 9/16" ratchet to remove the 3/8" axle bolt. After you remove the axle simply replace wheel and re-install axle. Lock nuts are provided with the casters when you buy them from us so you will need to reinstall using our special lock nuts to make sure the axle stays in place.
