me i personally choose those independent wheels (where you put the lil ones inside) so they could also safely roam around without the fear of escaping. I dont know what its called though. wheels included in quality cages are also good though eventually the lil ones would outgrow them.

Do you have the metal grid ones? Instead of the rungs, they are in little squares.

I have never heard of metal grid wheels, all we can seem to get over here in the UK is the metal rung wheels, theres not that much choice in the petshops unless you travel around and then theres still not many options mainly the choice is between a plastic solid wheel, a metal rung wheel or a plastic rung wheel. I have only ever found a solid metal wheel once and that didn't last very long with my critters

look at my signature and you'll see Martina standing on a metal mesh one. 8) I like those the best, cause they are pretty safe and can't get chewed to bits.

They are made by Super Pets aren't they Padfoot?

Are there any US companies who sell to the UK? With the exchange rate, the wheel would work out pretty cheap, but shipping might be expensive.

I think your right its the shipping that makes it expensive as looked into exchange rates once before. We do get super pets products over here but never seen mesh wheels!

Lightbulb Shipping wheels...

Stuff, like wheels and what not can be shipped to other countries. We just shipped a wodent wheel to Germany and SUPRISINGLY it was only about 6 dollars (US) to ship it all the way there. Oddly I sent a CD to a state here in the US right next to me and that was 4 dollars - GO FIGURE! LOL We have tons of used wheels, runged and wire mesh, in many different sizes list on our web page here:http://nygerbil.com/id51.html E-mail us privately if you are interested in any. Best!

nygerbil,

The two sections of the Silent Spinner wheels seem to get loose after a lot of use. I simply glue them tightly together and therefore mostly solve that issue.
