Skid Shoe replacements

I purchased a set of MTD snow thrower Roller Skid shoes for my 9hp Craftsman snow thrower. I got tired of having to replace the skids so frequently due to the roughness of my driveway (only the base coat). They work great.

Unfortunately one of the skids caught a small stone between the skid frame and the wheel causing it to stop turning. That pretty much flattened the wheel on one side. I had bought replacement so I was back in business quickly. But after I replace the entire skid, I realize that the wheel can be removed.

So my question is does anyone know where I could pick up replace wheels that have inside dimension of 5/8 inch whole, outside dimensions of 1 3/4 inch, and a width of 3/4 inches? It's a plastic wheel but I'm not locked into that.

Thanks

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the Roller Skid?

I've looked around but not found anything particular to the Roller Skid. Maybe you could send an email to the Arnold company.

I was hoping to be able to walk into my local ACE hardware and pick one up. I'll contact Arnold and see about a replacement. Thanks for reading my post.

If you have a Fastenal store nearby, maybe they'd have something for you.
