      Inline wheels will work for the transport wheels.

        Are inline wheels able to support the weight of a lane machine? That is my only concern.

            The inline wheels should work as there would be 2 in each caster unless you have a rough floor, and as with anything else some inline wheels are better than others. My transport wheels are starting to wear I'll try this next week and let you know.

              We have some solid white wheels, I dont know what the material is, but it is rock solid.. You just touch the machine and it will move all over the place. I will try to get a few pics to show you what I am talking about. They are sweet!

                They are probably nylon casters...do they have ball bearings in them or does the bolt just go into the nylon?

                    They were homemade and have bearings and a spacer in them.

                          Well I pulled the upright transport casters off the machine today and replaced with two 82mm size inline wheels per caster, wheel bearings fit the caster wheels bolt perfect. Just used some washers to center wheels, 1 on each side and 3 between the 2 wheels. So far everything is good machine rolls much smoother but only time will tell how well they hold up.

                          The set of 8 inline wheels I used retails for less than $30.00 without bearings, bearings cost $21.00 and up, but since we have a skating rink I used some of the rental skate bearings. $50.00 to replace wheels and bearings for all 4 casters.

                            I guess this adresses a question I posed in another post:

                            Have any of you replaced the transport wheels with 80mm in line skate replacement wheels? I found a pack of 8 for $50 at a local sports store.
                            I found them here and they actually cost $40 with bearings.

                            I wanted to give them a try, but I am actually not really in need of them at the moment, so I will just keep tuned in on sbrooks' experience with them.

                              Well the inline wheels have been on machine for a couple weeks now and no problems yet. Machine rolls much better with these than the transport casters that were on machine, the caster had gotten beat up over the last few years.
