RWM Casters’ Soft Rubber Wheels are a good choice for those applications where the average load is light with occasional loads using the full capacity of the wheel. Soft Rubber Wheels offer floor protection but can leave black marks on floors. They tend to wear on rough surfaces and can become brittle if left outdoors, exposed to the elements. Economical in smaller sizes, Soft Rubber Wheels become more expensive in larger sizes, especially when premium rubber material is used.
