    So after 3 years of usage, the wheels are coming apart on my pinskates. I see on eBay they sell new wheels for $17.99 a piece......WTF??? Anyone found good replacement wheels? Personally I feel the wheels sold with the units are too soft, which is why they shred over time. That being said, I cannot say enough good things about my Pinskates, they have been a life saver over the years and I highly recommend this product.

    Seems like rolling them on blacktop frequently would be very rough on them. They should last a long time on a smooth surface.

    Never checked, but aren't they the same as rollerblade tires?

    I got the ones off ebay, I only used my pinskates for like 2 months before they started falling apart.
    The hardware store didn't have any that were applicable. I only checked home depot and lowes, maybe northern tool would have something cheaper.

    Just so you know the ones I got of ebay weren't an exact match, but In my opinion much better quality then what they originally came with.
    I had to drill out the hole just a tad and crimp down on the nut a little further since the threads weren't as long.
    Don't remember how much they cost, but do remember thinking they were a little expensive. are they red?

    Mine started to disintegrate last summer. I searched all over the stores and the net trying to find replacements. A casters only place I went to didn't even know where to get them. I even order two sets from different companies that showed the exact measurements, and when I received them they were wrong in some way.

    I don't even remember jabtecs site showing replacement casters last year when I was looking. Ordering four would get a little expensive!

    After 4 yrs of use, the rubber covering on all 4 wheels of my pinskates have cracked and fell apart.

    Anyone found new wheels that works besides $17.99 replacement casters?

    EDIT

    Found the caster info here:
