Gate Wheel with Suspension - 210-Lb. Capacity, 8in. Pneumatic Tire, Model# CT-GW01
The product is well built. My problem was that I needed it on gates made to keep dogs in. They are cattle gates and they have to be nearly on the ground. These wheels will not work for them as they mount too close too a low gate. They would have worked had the gate been 8" above grade. Not sure how long the tires would stay up. Usual Chinese tires.

worked great for 9 ft. treated wood driveway gates
A great value, it proved to be the right answer to my concerns about the weight of a 9 ft. Treated wood privacyfence driveway gate.

New use for gate wheels
We purchased the gate wheels for a new use. We put them on a used trampoline that we enclosed with chicken wire around the bottom. We now have a portable chicken yard to wheel around the backyard. They work great!

This has worked out even better than we expected, Saved me several hundred dollars and didn't have to rebuild my heavy gate. It is built well and heavy duty and I wish I had done it months earlier.

I purchased this for my 10 ft. Gate into my property. It has performed as described keeping my gate straight and upright.

Good but not great
If you have to attach the wheel in the middle of the gate like I did, you will find that you have to add 2-1/2 inches to the bracket. The bracket is designed for a 6" wheel and the wheel is 8-1/2 inches.
Also the u-bolts are not square and the threads (one on each bolt) were damaged. So a trip to the big box was needed.
The bracket and post themselves are fine, even a grease fitting- lol.

Great concept, cheap tire
The only problem I have with this gate wheel - and this is number three - is the tire. They last about six months, and within a year, they are completely shredded. Other than that, everything else is fine, no part shortages or other failures. For the price, and the ease at which the gate glides over uneven gravel, I'll continue to buy these once a year until I find something better.

I have 2 of these I have been using for a couple of years.
The design and mechanism are good and sturdy, the wheel, however, is junky. I replaced both wheels on mine with solid rubber ones and they are now good. The original wheels lasted only a few months on both a hard use gate and a light use gate. The new wheels cost almost as much as the whole gate wheel assembly but its worth it to have them function as intended.

What we were looking for
The wheel was what we were looking for. The only thing that was wrong with it is the weak U bolts. We ended up going to a parts store to get new U bolts as the ones that came with it stripped out as we were putting it on the gate. Other that that, the wheel went on easily, and is very free moving. It is perfect for our gate.
