Luggage- new wheels!!!
There was a luggage thread posted recently, but I thought I would start a new one. In that thread, many folks agreed that it is a waste to spend a lot of money on luggage with the abuse it gets from airline baggage handlers these days. We've made our lightweight Samsonite luggage last since 2013. It has gotten dirty but I've been able to clean the heavy duty nylon material. The zippers and stowing handle have held up so we had planned to keep it. However, at first we barely noticed, but recently the wheels became so worn that they didn't roll and swivel worth a darn. So I did some searching and found what looked like suitable replacements- AmazonBasics Softside Luggage Wheels, Multicolor. I got a set and installed them using 4 supplied (or the original) screws and just a Phillips screwdriver. Perfect match, perfect fit! My bag rolls like a top!! I immediately ordered a set for my wife's bag. I just got done installing those. Only $14.99 for a set of 4! (plus free shipping with Prime. (there are other styles and brands available.) Once cleaned, the bags will look and feel like new!!! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BK6TCKY/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
